Looking for a quick snack or easy lunch for on the go?  This Cheesy Pepperoni Sticks Recipe is a hit, great for kids and adults alike.  When we’re craving a quick pizza snack, I’ve whipped these up using store bought pizza crust.  If I’m making this as the main course of our lunch, I use my homemade pizza dough recipe as the base and serve with baked veggies and fresh fruit.  Both ways taste great and make this recipe a success!

Cheesy Pepperoni Sticks Recipe

Recipe – Step By Step

As always, follow along with these step-by-step instructions if you’d like to see the process in action.  If starting with a store bought pizza crust, move on to the next step.  Otherwise, start by following this delicious easy homemade pizza dough recipe first.  Then preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Roll Out Pizza Dough

Once you have your pizza dough, roll it out to about 1/4 inch thick.  (You don’t want it too thick or it’s hard to bake all the way through.  Too thin will leave your pizza sticks exploding.)  Once rolled out, slice into rectangle shapes, big enough to fit your toppings.  The homemade pizza dough will give you about 16 rectangles while a store bought crust will give about 10.
