INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 lb. refrigerated pizza dough
  • Egg wash (1 egg whisked with 1 tbsp water)
  • 7 mozzarella sticks
  • 1/4 c. melted butter
  • 1/2 c. finely grated Parmesan
  • 1 tbsp. Thinly sliced basil
  • 1 tbsp. chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp. chopped rosemary
  • Marinara, warmed (for serving)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut mozzarella sticks into 1” pieces and set aside.;
  2. On a floured surface, divide pizza dough into two pieces. Stretch and roll each piece of dough into a long rectangle, then cut dough into 2” squares (you’ll need 33 total);
  3. Wrap a dough square around each piece of mozzarella, forming a tightly sealed ball. Place balls seam-side down on the baking sheet in the shape of a Christmas tree (they should be touching). Brush egg wash on dough balls and bake until golden, 15 to 20 minutes;
  4. Meanwhile, whisk together melted butter, Parmesan and herbs. Brush on baked pizza balls. Serve warm with marinara for dipping.
