Cheesy Pepperoni Breadsticks

Sometimes I have to wonder if my children are completely normal.

You see, they refuse to eat pizza.  Even cheese pizza, unless it’s of the cheesy breadstick variety.

I’m constantly making new and different versions of homemade pizzas trying to tempt their picky little palettes.

Then I made the Super Soft 45 Minute Breadsticks and a light bulb went off.  The breadsticks were the absolute perfect base for my boys’ favorite cheesy breadsticks!   Success!

I’ve since made these two ways, with leftover breadsticks and fresh breadsticks.  Both are nice quick options, though if you’re in a weeknight pinch, method 1 is lightning fast.

Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Mini Pepperoni

Method 1:

Preheat the broiler to high and place a rack directly under it. 

Space the leftover breadsticks on a rimmed baking sheet.  Sprinkle each breadstick generously with mozzarella, followed by mini pepperonis.

Place the tray under the broiler for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is melty and beginning to brown.  Serve hot with your favorite pizza sauce.

Method 2:

Immediately after baking a fresh pan of breadsticks, sprinkle 2-3 cups of mozzarella over the top, followed by mini pepperonis.

Place back in the hot oven and bake for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is melted.  Tear along the perforations to serve with your favorite pizza sauce.
