Our Family Favorite Cheese Sticks

Last year I posted a recipe in Ramadan, for my Home Made Extra cheesy sticks with Home Made Ranch, and boy was it a hit!! It is one of the top viewed recipes on my site.. My kids loved them, my family and friends loved them, and I'm sure you all did too... SO This Ramadan I want to share a different Homemade Cheese Stick  Recipe with all my wonderful viewers, so you can enjoy this with your loved ones as well.


Its quite similar to my Cheesy sticks, but I only use one type of cheese, and I make my own homemade sauce and homemade pizza dough which gives it that extra exceptional yummy taste.. I love to top them with black pepper, and parsley and sometimes I like to sprinkle them with Parmesan cheese. SO be creative you can even add a can of sliced Jalapenos, giving you Jalapeno Cheese Sticks..
Oh and did I forget, I love to serve them with My homemade Ranch.. Belive me your kids will love them, and will love you for making them..It will be a Treat for the little precious ones while their fasting this Ramadan..

SO simple, so quick and SO devine..

Servings One Xlarge Cheesy Stick  18-20 slices depending on your pizza pan
Recipe source Naz's Kitchen Fiesta

Ingredients

2 Tablespoons yeast
2 teaspoons oil
1 cup warm water or more for kneading dough
Method: In a large mixing bowl add your flour, salt, and yeast mix together with your hands. Now add your oil, and mix again gently then start adding about a cup of warm water (don't use very hot water or it will kill the yeast) slowly knead the dough like you would for pizza.. make sure it dosent get too soft.. Cover and set aside in a warm place while you prepare the other half.

Ingredients for homemade Sauce:

1 teaspoon oregano
1 tablespoon oil
1 cup of water
2 tablespoons corn flour (cornstarch) too thicken the sauce

on medium flame add your oil, and your salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano. Heat until they spur. quickly add in your blended tomatoes, and 1 cup of water cook for about 20-25 minutes. whisk your cornstarch in about 3 tablespoons of water and to your sauce whisking well. Simmer  and remove after about 5 minutes.

Method to assemble your cheese sticks.
Grease a xlarge pizza pan. Roll out your pizza dough, shaping it like a square, using your hands after you have placed it on to your pizza pan.

Poke a fork all over the pizza dough for air bubbles


Now add your Homemade Sauce
Then Sprinkle with lots of Mozzarella Cheese
And Sprinkle with black pepper, and oregano, or any other topping of your choice.. Sometimes I like to drizzle it with some olive oil ***wink wink...:)
 
Now place in a heated oven and cook for about 20 25 minutes. watching carefully so it dosent burn.
Gently remove from oven and Place on a cooling, cutting board..
Yummmmmmmm
Now run a Pizza Cutter through the middle, and then through the sides of how big and wide you want your cheese sticks
Then Eat one while its nice and Cheesy HOT.... lol
