Time given to fix 20 minutes

Cooking time 18 minutes

For the dough:

  • – 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • – 1 package 2 ¼ tsp active dry yeast
  • – 1 cup of warm water about 110°F/45°C
  • – 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • – 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • – 1 tsp salt

For the filling:

  • – 1 cup of pizza sauce
  • – 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • – Your favorite pizza toppings pepperoni, diced bell peppers, sliced ​​black olives, etc.

For brushing:

  • – 2 tablespoons of melted butter
  • – 1 tsp garlic powder
  • – 1 tsp dried oregano
  • – 1 tsp grated Parmesan cheese

Step 1: Preparing the Dough

  • In a small bowl, combine the warm water and sugar. Stir well until the sugar dissolves, then sprinkle the active dry yeast on top. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until foamy.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the yeast mixture and olive oil.

  • Mix the ingredients with a wooden spoon until a dough forms, then transfer the dough onto a floured surface.

  • Knead the dough for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour while kneading.

  • Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 1 hour or until doubled in size.

Step 2: Preparing the Filling

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • When the dough has risen, punch it down to release the air, and roll it out on a floured surface into a rectangle about 12×16 inches in size.

  • Spread the pizza sauce evenly over the assembled dough, leaving a small border around the edges.

  • Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce, making sure to cover the entire surface.

  • Add your favorite pizza toppings on top of the cheese layer, spreading them evenly.

Step 3: Twisting the Pizza Twists

  • Carefully fold the dough in half lengthwise, enclosing the filling inside the dough.

  • Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, cut the folded dough into 1-inch-wide strips, creating long pizza twist strips.

  • Take one strip at a time and gently twist it a few times, making sure the filling is securely contained within the twists.

  • Place the rolled pizza pieces on the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between them to allow for expansion.

Step 4: Baking and Finishing Touches

  • In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, garlic powder, dried oregano, and grated Parmesan cheese to make the brushing mixture.

  • Brush the mixture over the pizza twists, adding flavor and a golden finish.

  • Pop the baking sheet into the preheated oven and bake for 15-18 minutes or until the pizza twist is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly and melted.

  • When they are done, remove the twists from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before serving.
