Twisted Pizza Breadsticks

2 lbs. frozen bread dough, thawed in refrigerator for 24 hours
12 oz. jar pizza sauce (I prefer sauce with little to no sugar)
1 bag mini turkey pepperonis or other topping of your choice
1 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
½. c. grated parmesan cheese
Italian seasoning (or substitute dried basil and oregano)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Roll each loaf of dough to a ½” thick rectangle on a well-floured surface (seriously, don’t forget the flour).
Spread about 3 tbsp. pizza sauce over one rectangle of dough. You only want enough to just coat the surface or else it will be really messy when you get to the twisting step. (Don’t worry, there will be plenty of sauce for dipping!)
Sprinkle about ½. pepperoni and 1 c. mozzarella over the sauce, and arrange the other rectangle dough over the top.
Press the top dough down evenly, and then slice the dough into strips about 1½” wide. Carefully twist each strip of dough, and place the breadsticks on two baking sheets lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Sprinkle parmesan and Italian seasoning over the top of the twisted sticks.
Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, until tops are golden brown.
Serve with ample pizza sauce for dipping, and enjoy!
