1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 (10-ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
Butter-flavored vegetable cooking spray

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425°. Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl; stir well, and set aside.

Unroll pizza dough, and roll into an 8 x 12-inch rectangle. Lightly coat surface of dough with cooking spray, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese mixture. Fold the dough in half to form a 6 x 8-inch rectangle. Roll dough into a 12 x 8-inch rectangle. Lightly coat surface of dough with cooking spray, and sprinkle with remaining cheese mixture. Using fingertips, press cheese mixture into dough.

Cut the dough into 16 (8-inch-long) strips. Gently pick up both ends of each strip, and twist dough. Place the twisted strips of dough 1/2 inch apart on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

Bake at 425° for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pan, and let cool on wire racks.
