Healthy Pizza Sticks App:  Have you noticed how the word “app” means a different thing today than it used to?  It used to be short for appetizer, but now it’s short for application.

Well, whatever.  Maybe you can use this healthy pizza sticks recipe as an application for an appetizer.  Or not.  It works as the main dish too.

Author: Heidi Boortz
Servings : 8

Ingredients

Dough

  • 1 3/8 cup water lukewarm
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 4 cups 100% whole wheat pastry flour or regular whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast

Toppings

  • 1 Cup marinara No sugar listed in ingredients
  • 2 cups mozzarella Grated

Filling

  • 3 Oz uncured italian sausage No sugar listed in ingredients; cooked and crumbled
  • 1 Cup mozzarella Grated

Instructions

Dough Stand Mixer Method

  • Add liquids, then dry ingredients to the bowl of a stand mixer. (Take care not to let yeast and salt touch.)
  • Fit mixer with dough hook. Mix on low speed until dough ball forms and cleans the sides of the bowl. (2-5 minutes)
  • (If dough ball is too sticky, add more flour, 1 T at a time. If it is too dry, add more water, 1 T. at a time.)
  • Fold cheese and sausage into dough. Divide dough in half.
  • Press dough into two parchment-lined, rimmed baking sheets. Top with marinara and cheese. Bake at 400 10-12 min. Cut into 1 inch by 1 inch by 3 inch (approximate) rectangles. Serve with additional marinara for dipping.

Dough: Mix by Hand Method

  • Mix all ingredients in a large bowl with a wooden spoon. As soon as the dough is too tough to stir with a spoon, transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead by hand 10 minutes, or until dough is pliable and doesn't stick to hands.
  • (If dough ball is too sticky, add more flour, 1 T at a time. If it is too dry, add more water, 1 T. at a time.)
  • Fold cheese and sausage into dough. Divide dough in half.
  • Press dough into two parchment-lined, rimmed baking sheets. Top with marinara and cheese. Bake at 400 10-12 min. Cut into 1 inch by 1 inch by 3 inch (approximate) rectangles. Serve with additional marinara for dipping.
