Easy Cheese Sticks

This is a copy of the cheesesticks they made when I worked at Godfather's years ago. I loved them!

(my favorite from chickens in the road, I modified it a bit for my tastes)
This recipe will make two  fairly good sized crusts, you can half it for 1 batch of cheesesticks or make 1 a pizza!
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 teaspoon yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder3 1/2 to 4 cups flour

(In kitchenaid) Combine water, yeast, sugar and olive oil. Allow to sit for 5 minutes until it is foamy.
Add in salt and mix in 1/2 the flour. Switch to the dough hook, continue adding flour until the dough holds together, knead until it is smooth and elastic.
Place it in a greased bowl and allow to rise to doubled in a warm location(about 45 minutes)

Divide in half and Roll out on greased pizza pans.


2 tablespoons butter melted
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 c shredded mozzarella
1/2 c shredded cheddar
dried parsley and oregano

Combine butter and garlic powder
Combine your shredded cheeses

Spread pizza dough out on pizza pan and brush with butter mixture, Sprinkle with cheese  and dried parsley and oregano to taste 

 bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes, dough should be slightly underdone at this time, you can cook it more if you like

Dip in Ranch or Tomato Pizza Sauce:
1 (8oz ) can tomato sauce
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dried basil leaves
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp lemon juice
dash of onion powder
1tsp sugar
1/4 cup sneaky chef orange puree(optional, recipe here)
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Heat the sauce until it starts to bubble, then turn the heat down and simmer, covered for 30 to 60 minutes, until it reaches the thickness you desire. When the sauce is cooled store in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed container until required.
