  • For the dough
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 1/4 cups bread flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons yogurt I used Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • For the Cheesy jalapeno Bread Sticks
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup grated mild cheddar cheese
  • 1 8 oz cream cheese at room temperature
  • 2 jalapenos seeded rinsed and diced


  1. For the Dough: Combine the yeast and warm water in a large mixing bowl, set aside for 5-8 minutes or until the yeast the yeast has activated and the mixture is bubbly. Add the salt, oil and half the flour and mix with a wooden spoon or in the stand mixture. Once the flour is fully incorporate remove the spatula and turn dough onto a floured board and knead for 5 minutes or until the dough is no longer sticky. Place in a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise for 60-90 minutes. Once the dough has doubled in size punch down and divide it in two. Each part will make one batch or bread sticks or a pizza.

  2. For the bread sticks: Preheat oven to 500 degrees. In a medium bowl combine the cream cheese, cleaned and diced jalapenos (be sure to remove the seeds), and 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese in a bowl with a fork. Set aside.

    Roll out the pizza dough into a 12-14 inch square or circle. You can do this on parchment paper or in a pizza pan. Once the dough is rolled out top with half the cream cheese mixture and reserve the other half for the 2nd pie. Try to spread it as evenly as possible, it's okay if it doesn't spread well because it will melt and spread in the oven. Top with the cheddar cheese and remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake at 500F for 15-20 minutes or until the crust in puffed up and lightly golden. Remove from oven and cut into long strips. Serve warm alone or with your favorite dipping sauce.
