I've made these before using store bought pizza dough. They are really tasty. I served a spaghetti sauce (I like Classico for storebought) as a dipping sauce and omitted the sesame seeds.

These are really good. I used my homemade wheat dough and they were a hit. I think a little melted butter brushed on after baking would have made them outstanding. I'd also add a little salt next time. Maybe if I'd used store bought dough it wouldn't need the extra salt. I had a hard time getting my twists to stay twisted, so some were a little deformed, but no one seemed to mind. Thanks for posting this one!!
