Pepperoni Cheese Twists Recipe

Pepperoni Cheese Twists Recipe

Refrigerated dough keeps these snacks fuss-free. They're great all by themselves...or try them with a simple antipasto of peppers, olives and cheeses.—Josephine D. Piro, Easton, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min. YIELD:14 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes plus 1 teaspoon oil from the jar
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pepperoni
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • Dash garlic powder
  • Dash pepper
  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a small bowl, combine tomatoes and their oil, pepperoni, cheese, rosemary, water, garlic powder and pepper.
  • 2. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 14x10-in. rectangle. Spread tomato mixture lengthwise over half of dough.
  • 3. Fold dough over filling: press edges to seal. Cut widthwise into fourteen 1-in.-wide strips. Fold each strip in half; twist two or three times. Place 1 in. apart on a greased baking sheet.
  • 4. Bake 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 14 cheese twists.
