Cheese Pull-A-Part (From the Pie)

We have a restaurant here in Utah called The Pie Pizzeria. Located near two universities, it's a popular college hang out. As long as I can remember my favorite dish they serve is the cheese pull-a-part. It's gooey cheese stuffed breadsticks topped with Parmesan and herbs. It comes with ranch and marinara dipping sauce. My husband and I used to eat there all the time back in our college days, but it has been years since I have been there because we are not close to any of the locations.

I hate to say it but I used my bread maker to make the dough so if you have a bread maker just make the pizza or bread stick dough listed in your bread maker recipe book. Make enough dough to make two pizzas. You can also use your favorite recipe for pizza dough. (Avoid whole-wheat dough as this recipe is not meant to have that wheat flavor. It would be like making sour dough with wheat flour).

Cheese Pull-A-Part (From the Pie)
  • Your favorite pizza dough (enough for 2 pizzas)
  • 4-6 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese (you could slice it if you like) 
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Romano cheese
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

Set the oven to 375 degrees. Roll out your pizza dough on floured surface and place on a pizza pan. Cover with mozzarella cheese. Roll out second dough and place on top like a sandwich. Brush oil and melted butter over the top. Sprinkle, Parmesan, Romano, oregano and garlic over the top. Lightly score the dough with a pizza cutter into bread stick slices, however don't cut all the way or cheese will run out during baking. This makes it easy to just pull the bread sticks off with your fingers without tearing when it comes right out of the oven. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve with homemade marinara and ranch. Enjoy!
