Weather you’re used to Little Caesars Italian Cheese Bread or Papa John’s Cheese Sticks, maybe even some other version from another local Pizza Pie cafe you love, they’re all pretty much one in the same; a baked pizza crust with some variation of ingredients mixed into the melted cheese. So, it doesn’t matter what you call it just as long as it’s good and I’ve got a great recipe for you. Not only is it good, it’s great and it’s really easy to make, too.
How I make Italian Cheese Bread
When I make Italian Cheese Bread I use my Pizza Dough Recipe, only I bake it at lower temperature. I also use my Pizza Sauce Recipe for dipping, as well. One of the secret ingredients, however, to making great cheese bread is seasoning the dough after it’s been rolled out. I keep it very simple by spreading 1/4 cup of Italian dressing because it’s got everything you need. Then I lay down the cheese, Mozzarella and Romano. It’s a perfect combination mixed with dried Mexican Oregano and some crushed Chili Flakes.
Italian Cheese Bread Ingredients:
1 lbs Pizza dough 1/4 cup Italian dressing 1 cup Mozzarella cheese, grated 2 tbsp Romano cheese, grated 1 tsp Mexican Oregano, dried 1 tsp Crushed Chili flakes, dried
Make the dough the day before and refrigerate for best results. Remove the dough 1 hour before baking and allow it to rise and reach room temperature before rolling it out. Bake Italian Cheese Bread at 475 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 minutes on the bottom rack.
Nacho Pizza is fabulous and once you see and taste it for yourself you’ll agree. Nachos very often have a real nice spicy sauce over them with melted cheese, also Onions, Peppers, chopped Tomato and Olives, Avocado or Guacamole and very often, Lettuce and Sour Cream. Well, you guessed it. those are all of my ingredients for this Nacho Pizza and if you dare to try it out for yourself, you’re going to love it.
Pepperoni Vs. Nacho Pizza
Clearly, there’s no comparison between a classic Pepperoni Pizza and a Nacho Pizza. In fact I’m just showing off a nice pic I took of this Pepperoni using Vita Versa’s Pizza Peal. And I am so glad they sent it too me. I had this old Baking stone I hadn’t broke out yet and I’ve just been dying to use it. So between the two, i can crank out some fantastic Pizza.
The Pizza Peel is easy to use and making pizza is a lot more enjoyable now when pull this off the wall to slide the dough in and out. As you will see in my Nacho Pizza Video down below, owning your own peal makes total sense. And it cleans up and stores with ease. So if you’re interested in Vita Verse’s Pizza Peel, check out their page.
