I have mixed emotions about the whole thing. I’ll have three kids going off to school, and one attending preschool 3 days a week. It will be quite around here, and I’m not sure I like that. I have enjoyed the hustle and bustle this summer. Kids coming and going. Friends and cousins. Popsicles and slip-n-slides. Bike rides and late night movies.
It might be because I really love them.

Well, the kids love them too. But man… do I love these things!

First of all, they are only 6 ingredients. Virtually no dishes to clean up. And they’re super quick to put together.

How can you not fall in love with a portable pizza stick?

Obviously if you’re not a fan of pepperoni, just leave those out. You could even add in some sliced bell peppers, mushrooms, or whatever pizza fixings you like!

I stuck with the classic pepperoni and cheese this time.

I actually had all these ingredients on hand too. I bought a ginormous bag of string cheese the other day when I was at Costco. It was ridiculously cheap, and my kids down these cheese sticks like nobody’s business.

I’m ok with that because… it’s cheese!

Just another great way for my kiddos to get their bone-healthy, daily dose of dairy!

That I infused with garlic powder and dried parsley.

I pretty much put that butter combo on any sort of bread that I bake. It doesn’t disappoint.

Once they little pizza sticks are all slathered with butter goodness they’re ready to be baked.

Best part – unlike fried mozzarella sticks, these all get done at the same time! No messy oil, and they’re golden, buttery, cheesy and oh-so delicious.

If you just so happened to not make a perfect seal on the sticks and some cheese oozes out… well, that’s just fine.

The gooey cheese that lands on the pan is also delicious.

But don’t worry. There is still plenty of cheesy filling inside the pizza stick.

I can’t get over how good these are.

They’re unbelievable when dipped in marinara sauce.

Life doesn’t get much better than that!

I just can’t… those messy top knots on little girls… gets me every time!
