By Stephanie Wise
Created January 27, 2012


  • 1 can (13.8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Classic Crust Pizza Crust
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Asiago or Parmesan cheese
  • Muir Glen™ organic pizza sauce (from 15-oz can), heated


  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. If pizza baking stone is unavailable, line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • 2
    On baking stone, roll out dough into 10x6-inch rectangle. Brush butter evenly over dough. Sprinkle cheese evenly over butter.
  • 3
    Using pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut dough crosswise into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Twist each strip tightly, being careful to keep most of cheese inside; place on baking stone. If desired, top twisted strips with additional cheese.
  • 4
    Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted. Serve warm with warm pizza sauce for dipping.

  • Add a few dashes of dried oregano and basil leaves to the toppings for extra flavor.
  • Don’t be limited by Cheddar and Asiago cheese—use any of your favorite cheeses for this recipe!
