Breadstick Pizza

Not only do refrigerated breadsticks lend a fun twist to pizza, but they make this dish a weeknight staple at my house. Feeding kids? Slice pieces into small strips and let the kids dip each strip into marinara sauce. They’ll love it! —Mary Hankins, Kansas City, Missouri

  • Makes
    12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tubes (11 ounces each) refrigerated breadsticks
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 medium green peppers, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning, divided
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 5 ounces Canadian bacon, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Marinara sauce

Directions

  • Unroll breadsticks into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of pan; pinch seams to seal. Bake at 350° until set, 6-8 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute the mushrooms, peppers, onion and 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning in 2 teaspoons oil until crisp-tender; drain.
  • Brush crust with remaining oil. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup cheddar cheese; top with vegetable mixture and Canadian bacon. Combine mozzarella cheese and remaining cheddar cheese; sprinkle over top. Sprinkle with remaining Italian seasoning.
  • Bake until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Serve with marinara sauce.
    Freeze option: Bake crust as directed, add toppings and cool. Securely wrap and freeze unbaked pizza. To use, unwrap pizza; bake as directed, increasing time as necessary.

    The breadsticks make a great crust to this pizza! We used pizza sauce for dipping, which was also good. There were too many green peppers for us, but that's easily fixed. I plan on making this again and varying the toppings.

    This recipe was fantastic and the method worked perfectly! I used partially cooked/drained bacon in place of Canadian bacon, on top of the pizza. The breadstick dough makes a delicious crust. This one is a keeper!
