INGREDIENTS:

1 package/ball store-bought pizza dough
1/2 cup baking soda
1 egg
1 TBSP water
2 TBSP Milford Spice Company’s Everything Better

DIRECTIONS:

Make your dough according to package or let thaw for 3-4 hours, if frozen.

Line 2 baking sheets with silicone mats. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured cutting board and form into a ball. Cut into 4 equal pieces, and then cut those in half to form 8 equal pieces. Using your hands, roll each piece into a ball and place onto a prepared baking sheet. Cover with a dish cloth and let them rest in a warm place for 12 to 15 minutes.

Once rested, lightly dust your work surface again and roll the balls into 7-inch logs. Place onto the other prepared baking sheet, cover, place back in the warm spot and let rest for an additional 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place one oven rack high and one low. Line 2 more baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper.

In a large pot, bring 8 cups water to a boil, and then add the baking soda. ***BE CAREFUL because when you add baking soda to boiling water, it bubbles up really fast and you do not want it to overflow!***

In batches, place the dough in the water and cook for 30 seconds on each side.

Using a slotted spatula, remove the logs and place onto the prepared baking sheets.

Whisk together the egg and water. Brush each stick with the egg wash and top with Milford Spice Company’s Everything Better. Cut 3 diagonal slits on top of the bread, not too deep.

Bake for 10 to 13 minutes, rotating between the top and bottom racks of the oven halfway through the cooking.

Serve warm with your favorite dip!
