WHAT YOU NEED

Next cut the cheese sticks into 1/2-inch pieces.

Next wrap the pizza dough around the cheese and place seam side down on a parchment lined baking sheet. I like to spray my baking sheet with cooking spray so the parchment paper sticks.

Start at the bottom of the tree with a row of six, followed by a row of 5, then a row of 4, and so on until you get to the top. Keep them snug together so they bake together.

Once its done, bake them in a 400 degree oven for 12-18 minutes.

While the bread is baking, mix together melted butter with garlic powder and parsley flakes. Brush on this yummy buttery garlic mix on top of the bread when it’s done and garish with lots of shredded parmesan cheese on top.

Serve immediately with a side of marinara. I love to serve this Wegmans Tomato Oil.

It’s so good!
