For consumers seeking a new way to enjoy their favorite fast casual meals, these pepperoni pizza stix transform the long, triangular slices of pie into roll-ups that are ideal for dipping. The dish brings together familiar elements of pizza and reconfigures them with new texture and taste to offer a divergent way to make the meal.
The pepperoni pizza sticks are cylinder bread bites that are filled and deep fried with similar ingredients one might find on a meat-filled pie. The stix are filled with marinara sauce, fresh basil and mozzarella cheese that is sandwiched inside a pre-made cheese stick covered in a coating of flour, egg and bread crumbs. The coating acts as a substitute crust of sorts. The dish is deep fried and then served warm.
