Cheese Stuffed Tree Bread
1 can (13.8 oz) refrigerated regular pizza crust
12 mozzarella sticks
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary
1 cup marinara sauce for dipping
Heat oven to 400°. Lay pizza dough on a work surface and stretch to a 10 x 15-inch rectangular size. Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into 36 equal squares.
Take the mozzarella sticks and cut into 36 one-inch cubes. (3 cubes per stick)
Add one mozzarella stick cube to each dough square. Make a ball with the dough, sealing the edges. Place on a cookie sheet in a tree form.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
Melt the butter and add the garlic powder and rosemary stirring until all mixed together.
After removing the bread from the oven, brush with butter mixture and serve with marinara sauce. The bread easily pulls apart.
