Rhodes Pizza Breadsticks so darn yummy!

Hello again! It's me, Amber from Dessert Now, Dinner Later!, and I am back with a super fun, summer dinner that your kids are going to absolutely LOVE! With June being pizza month here on the Rhodes blog, I was thinking I wanted to make a twist on two of our favorites for pizza night at our house: pepperoni pizza and breadsticks. My kids more often than not eat mostly breadsticks, but this dinner was extra fun because the breadsticks are stuffed with the pepperonis and cheese to make pizza breadsticks!

Mmm Yummy Rhodes PIZZA Breadsticks

 

If you have never cooked pizza on the grill before, you are missing out! We do it all the time! It just adds a fun crisp exterior while keeping a soft, fluffy interior to the dough. It's the best! These pizza breadsticks are grilled on skewers for easy maneuvering and less spillage.

Try something new, Rhodes Pizza Breadsticks

 

These might even make a fun camping dinner if you have somewhere to roll out the dough. My kids thought this was the best dinner they had ever had, so it's super kid-friendly and easy to make!

Let me show you how. First gather some thawed, and slightly risen Rhodes white dinner rolls. I used 18 rolls to make 9 pizza breadsticks; so 2 rolls per breadstick. You will also need mozzarella cheese, pepperonis, butter, garlic salt and a little water to seal the breadsticks shut.

Rhodes Pizza Breadsticks

 

For each pizza breadstick, stack two rolls together and roll them about 9-inches long and 2 to 3-inches wide. Use a little flour as needed.

Layer 6 pepperonis and about 2 Tbsp of shredded mozzarella in the middle.

so cool! Try Rhodes Pizza Breadsticks!

 

Wet your fingers with a little water and dab the edges of the left half of the breadstick. Fold the right half over and pinch the seam shut. A little water goes a long ways, if it's too wet, it won't seal well. Then pick up the breadstick and wrap your hands around it (kind of squeezing it), to press down the seam. Move your hands down the breadstick pressing/squeezing the seam to make it smooth. You can optionally roll it on the counter like you would a normal breadstick.

After having soaked your wooden skewers for 15 minutes, loosely zig-zag your breadsticks onto each skewer. If it's tight, the bread will take longer to cook, so keep it loose. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

kids love Pizza Breadsticks!

 

Preheat your grill for 5 minutes and then turn it to low. Melt your butter and set it by the grill with your breadsticks, tongs, garlic salt, and pastry brush for the butter. Butter and season one side of each breadstick with garlic salt. Place the buttered sides down on the grill first. Then brush the other side of each breadstick with butter and sprinkle it with garlic salt while it's on the grill. You can shut the lid now or just keep it open and move things around as they cook. It goes kind of fast. You will turn each skewer until it's cooked on all 4 sides. It should be crispy to the touch and golden brown. These take around 10 minutes to cook. Just keep the temperature low so nothing burns, and watch out for flames from dripping butter.

Grill up some Rhodes Pizza Breadsticks! so easy!

 

Serve with a side of heated marinara to dip the pizza breadsticks in. We LOVE the new Classico pizza sauce!

Instructions

For each pizza breadstick, stack two rolls together and roll them about 9-inches long and 2 to 3-inches wide. Use a little flour as needed.

Layer 6 pepperonis and about 2 Tbsp of shredded mozzarella in the middle.

Wet your fingers with a little water and dab the edges of the left half of the breadstick.  Fold the right half over and pinch the seam shut.   Then pick up the breadstick and wrap your hands around it (kind of squeezing it), to press down the seam.  Move your hands down the breadstick pressing/squeezing the seam to make it smooth.   You can optionally roll it on the counter like you would a normal breadstick.

After having soaked your wooden skewers for 15 minutes, loosely zig-zag your breadsticks onto each skewer.  If it’s tight, the bread will take longer to cook, so keep it loose.  Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Preheat your grill for 5 minutes and then turn it to low.  Melt your butter and set it by the grill with your breadsticks, tongs, garlic salt, and pastry brush for the butter.  Butter and season one side of each breadstick with garlic salt.  Place the buttered sides down on the grill first.  Then brush the other side of each breadstick with butter and sprinkle it with garlic salt while it’s on the grill.  You can shut the lid now or just keep it open and move things around as they cook.  It goes kind of fast.  You will turn each skewer until it’s cooked on all 4 sides.  It should be crispy to the touch and golden brown.  These take around 10 minutes to cook.  Just keep the temperature low so nothing burns, and watch out for flames from dripping butter.
