Yield

Makes 14 servings

Ingredients

1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
3/4 cup warm water (105° to 115°F)
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup (1 ounce) shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 green onion, sliced
1 medium clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
1 tablespoon olive oil

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray 2 large nonstick baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Sprinkle yeast over warm water in small bowl; stir until yeast dissolves. Let stand 5 minutes or until bubbly.
  3. Meanwhile, place all remaining ingredients except olive oil in food processor; process a few seconds to combine. With food processor running, gradually add yeast mixture and olive oil. Process just until mixture forms a ball. (Add additional 2 tablespoons flour if dough is too sticky.)
  4. Transfer dough to lightly floured surface; knead 1 minute. Let dough rest 5 minutes. Roll out dough with lightly floured rolling pin to form 14X8-inch rectangle; cut dough crosswise into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Twist dough strips; place on prepared baking sheets.
  5. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until lightly browned.
