Mediterranean Herb Pizza Dough - and cheater pizza sticks

Pizza dough... fast and easy...

3 1/2 cups Flour (divided)
1 package fast rising Yeast
1 cup warm Water
2 TBS Garlic infused Olive Oil
2 TBS Mediterranean Herb Rub (see yesterday's post for that mixture... Click HERE)

In a large bowl, combine the warm water and yeast... mix well

add the other ingredients and mix very well.

Knead dough on a floured surface until smooth... about 10 minutes by hand, 5 minutes in a kitchenaid.

Cover and allow to rise for 2 hours.

And use as pizza dough... it takes about 20 minutes to cook the dough through.

But I take just a bit, and make some BBQ cheater pizza sticks...

Lay out some flat sticks of dough...

add a layer of BBQ sauce, and a bit of Asiago Cheese...

Bake 350 degrees for 20 minutes...

Makes a great appetizer!


  1. Yum! These look great... I think these would be really good out on the deck in the summer as an appy with a glass of wine while waiting for dinner!

  2. On a hot day, these would be perfect with a beer.

  3. I was expecting "cheater" pizza sticks to start off with "Open a tube of Pillsbury breadsticks ..." I love the idea of the garlic-infused olive oil in the pizza dough! I usually sprinkle some Italian seasoning on top of my dough, but never thought of actually incorporating it. These are excellent ideas you have ...
