Here’s How to Do it:

Start with the sauce.

In a mortar, crush the fennel seed coarsely.

Add the basil and onion powder and give it a quick grind.

Place the tomato sauce, water and bay leaf in a small saucepan. Slowly bring it to a simmer.
Stir in the spice mixture and simmer slowly (on a very low temperature) for 20 to 30 minutes.

Next, prep all the fillings for the pizza sticks – use mine or create your own!

Melt the butter with the garlic and stir in the salt.

Cut the dough into six long strips.

Now – fill each stick.

Carefully pull the sides and the ends over the fillings and pinch together to seal.

Place the filled sticks gently on a parchment lined baking sheet.


After all are filled and on the sheet, brush them all with the butter.

Sprinkle them with the dried parmesan cheese.

Preheat the oven to 325° then bake the strips for about 20 minutes, or until they are golden brown and stiff.


Cut each stick in half.

Serve with the warm sauce to dip in – and enjoy!
