Cheesy Pull-apart Fun!
I got the general idea for this off Pinterest but sadly it was just a picture so I had to try to create it on my own. I think I did a pretty good job to ;o)
1 Batch Pizza Dough
3 Tbsp Butter
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
As my pizza dough rose I tossed ideas back and forth for the easiest yet most effective way to do this. Pizza dough tends to be very elastic and isn't easily just rolled out, but I stretched and rolled it the best I could into long strips about 4 inches wide. I then took my Mozzarella cheese and put it in a line down the middle of the strip. I then rolled it over almost like you would if making a burrito. Then I cut them into pieces about 2 inches long and tucked them into a ball shape. After I got them all balled up I melted the butter in a small bowl and mix in the garlic and Italian seasoning. I put a layer of the dough and cheese balls in the bottom and on the sides of the pan. After a single layer I applied more butter to the top of them and then added another layer. After they were all layered I put the in the oven on 350 for about 25-35 minutes. :O) Now I did have some issues getting the middle ones cooked all the way so for faster cooking simply spread them out in one layer on a cookie sheet rather then stacking them :O)
To serve them I did the thing that would make every cardiologist pass out :OP I took the remaining butter and mixed it in with some spaghetti sauce Mmm....in made a perfect dipping sauce!
