Ingredients

  • PIZZA STICKS:
  • 1 tube (10 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • DIP:
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon savory herb with garlic soup mix
  • 1/4 cup chopped pepperoni
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

On a lightly floured surface, roll out pizza crust to a 12-in. x 8-in. rectangle. Brush with oil. Combine the Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and pepper; sprinkle over dough. Cut into 3-in. x 1-in. strips; place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 6-9 minutes or until golden brown.
Meanwhile, combine the sour cream, ricotta, soup mix and pepperoni in a saucepan; heat through. Stir in mozzarella and Parmesan cheese just until melted. Serve warm with pizza sticks. Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen pizza sticks and 2 cups dip.
