Garlic Cheese Sticks

I showed this bread, which I served with my Turkish breakfast recently, and had several requests for the recipe.  You can use it for these bread sticks or make the dough into pizza.  I forgot lots of photos when I made this but basically you just use a pizza cutter to cut this into strips.  It is fabulous and very easy.

The Dough:

1 C. warm water
2-1/4 tsp. rapid rise yeast
1 T, honey
2 tsp. salt
1 T. oil
3 C. flour

Mix this together and knead until you have a smooth ball and place it in a greased bowl, cover and let it rise until it doubles.

Spread it out on a piece of parchment which has been sprinkled with a bit of cornmeal.  Mix 2 T. of softened butter with 2 minced garlic cloves.  Spread that on top of the dough. Sprinkle it with 1/4 C. Parmesan cheese, 1/4 C. grated mozzarella, S&P and some oregano.  Bake it at 500 degrees for about 10 minutes.
