Pizza Bread Sticks

  1. Place the sugar in the water and mix until dissolved.
  2. Add the yeast and stir in, leave aside for 20 minutes until foamy.
  3. Mix the flour, salt, dried herbs, garlic and chillis together.
  4. When ready, pour in the yeast water and mix to form your dough. Aim for a slightly sticky dough (you may need a little more water if the mixture feels too dry).
  5. Chop the tomatoes and add them to the dough along with 50g of the mozzarella.
  6. Knead the dough for 5-10 minutes until is becomes stretchy and elastic with a sheen to it.
  7. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a tea towel and leave to rise for an hour.
  8. When the dough has doubled in size, tip it out onto a floured surface and knock back, removing all the air from it.
  9. Divide the dough into pieces and roll into sticks.
  10. Place each one on a lined baking tray with a little space in between to allow them to expand.
  11. Place the entire tray into a plastic bag and leave somewhere warm for 30 minutes to an hour to rise a little more.
  12. When they are ready, gently brush each one with the egg and sprinkle over the remaining mozzarella.
  13. Place into a preheated oven at 220oc (200oc fan assisted) for approximately 15 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
