Cheese Stuffed Pretzels
If bacon can be wrapped around shrimp and turkey can be stuffed with duck and chicken, why not cheese stuffed pretzels?
It's like a cross between cheese sticks and bread crust. If you remember Book-It clubs and personal pizzas from Pizza Hut, you probably also remember Stuffed-Crust pizza. A horribly awful artery clogging invention, but damn did it taste good in the 7th grade. If you crave cheese sticks with your beer...well you are all grown up.
This is made with ready made pizza crust, and then stuffed with shredded mozzarella.
Have on hand:
A pizza stone
Ready made pizza crust
some whole-wheat or all-purpose flour
Place pizza stone in oven, and preheat at 500. Roll out pizza dough on a floured surface to about 12" in length and about 2" wide. Place 3 T shredded mozzarella, more or less, in the inside and roll up, and shape like a pretzel.
Turn oven down to 425 and bake at 10-12 minutes. You can always make a pizza with the leftover crust.
Serve with heated marinara sauce.
