    Galley Wench's Note:

    Wonderful with soups, salads or your favorite pasta dish. The Pizza Sticks make a great snack! This recipe makes a soft flavorful breadstick. I make in my Kitchen Aid however it can easily be made by hand. The amount of flour required will vary with the consistency of the starter and the additions that are added, i.e. pepparoni.

      What a great bread recipe! I luved the idea of stuffing the dough with cheese! YUM! The mozzarella addeed a gooey centre to the sticks, that was enjoyed by the whole family. :)
      I used whole spelt flour due to dietary reasons so the sticks turned out a little more dense and heavy, but we liked that.
      I made half the recipe and ended up with 5 chunky sticks (I folded them to make smaller, thicker sticks), which were gobbled up quickly.
      I think next time Im making these, Id like to add in some more seasoning (like e.g. Italian Herbs) to the dough to give them even more flavour.
      For topping my sticks I used Katzen's wonderful Topping Mix Everything Topping Mix for Bread and Bagels.
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your recipe with us, Galley Wench! Il make it again.
      Made and reviewed for WTTM Tag Game July 2010.

      These are very good and go well with soups or salads. I did manage to leave out the Parmesan cheese but did brush them with butter and sprinkle some over when reheating. They do reheat very well. I did find that it was easier for me to divide the dough into equal portions and shape that way instead of as instructed in the recipe.
