Cheese Bread

This is a "Pizza Hut Knockoff recipe".  It is better than Pizza Hut.  It made a lot, so I served this as the main dish with a side salad.  I knew my boys would want some pepperoni, so I did chop some pepperoni up and sprinkled it on some of the cheese sticks before baking.  The whole family was pleased with this meal.  It was pretty easy to pull together, too.

Recipe from

1 1/2 cups warm water
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 Tbsp yeast
3 cups flour (more as needed)
1/2 cup melted butter (half for the bottom of pan, half on top of breadsticks)
Mozzarella cheese
Garlic powder
Garlic salt
Italian Seasoning
Dissolve yeast in the warm water. Let sit for 5 minutes.  Add sugar, pwd. milk and salt. Add enough flour to make a moderately stiff dough. Knead the dough until smooth. ( I did this in my Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook).
Roll the dough out in a large rectangle. Mine filled a jelly roll pan (you could divide the dough in half and do two 9x13 pans.  Spread half of the butter onto the bottom of the pan and then place the dough into the pan. Let raise in warm, draft-free place for 15 minutes.
Spread remaining butter on the top of the dough.  Top dough with cheese.  Bake at 350°F for 20-25 or until golden brown.  Sprinkle hot breadsticks with seasonings.  Cut into breadsticks and serve with marinara sauce.
