  • 4 servings


tablespoon Crisco® 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Pure Olive Oil
tablespoon cornmeal
tablespoon Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose Flour
can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated classic pizza crust
slices (1 1/2-inch size) pepperoni
pieces (1 oz each) mozzarella string cheese
teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
cup tomato pasta sauce, heated


  1. 1 Heat oven to 425°F. Brush large cookie sheet with 1/2 tablespoon of the oil. Sprinkle cookie sheet with cornmeal.
  2. 2 Sprinkle flour over work surface. On floured surface, unroll pizza crust dough; starting at center, press dough into 16x10-inch rectangle. With pizza cutter or knife, cut dough lengthwise into 4 (2 1/2-inch-wide) strips.
  3. 3 Evenly place 7 pepperoni slices on each dough strip, leaving 1/2 inch on each end uncovered. Cut each string cheese in half lengthwise. Place 4 cheese halves on pepperoni on each dough strip, overlapping ends to fit.
  4. 4 Bring up sides of each dough strip over pepperoni and cheese, and tightly pinch together, stretching dough as necessary to fully enclose cheese and pepperoni; pinch ends to seal. Lightly roll and shape into 16-inch logs. To make pretzel shape, form each log into U-shape, then cross the ends and fold dough over so ends rest on bottom of U-shape. Place pretzels on cookie sheet. Brush pretzels with remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  5. 5 Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until pretzels are golden brown. Serve warm with pasta sauce for dipping.
