I was recently searching for some good recipes to make cookies or quick snacks so I could just eat tasty something whenever I wanted to, without the need to cook a whole meal. But to my surprise, most recipes called for ingredients that belonged to Mars or about 15 hours prepping and what not. This was ABSURD. So I set out to make these amazing Pizza Sticks which are biscuits sprinkled with oregano and spices and taste a lot like Pizza. You can even enjoy them with cheese sprinkled on top, with mayo or a dip of your choice!
Without further ado, let’s get started!
Firstly, get the ingredients, set up the microwave/oven and get the supplies ready. This will help you to save time and make these quickly. Also, I recommend making some extra dough and keeping it in the fridge so you can roll it out, cut and bake it whenever you’re hungry.
I recommend doubling the recipe, because trust me, you won’t stop eating these. Also, these are amazing because they’re very low in calories and have the goodness of wheat to make you feel full.
- Wholewheat Flour (Atta) – 2 cups.
- All purpose flour (Maida) – 1-1.5 cups.
- Butter (Salted) – 2 spoonfuls.
- Oil – to grease the plate/baking tray.
- Piri Piri Powder (optional but recommended).
- Oregano – as per your taste.
- Chilli powder.
- Cold water.
- Baking powder – 2 spoonfuls.
- Baking soda – a pinch.
I know it’s a long list, but most ingredients are simple and already present in our pantries. (If not, you can plan a visit to the grocery store to stock up on these! They’re must-haves! )
The Oregano and Piri Piri Powder costed me about 1$ each, you can even use the sachets you get when you order pizza.
STEP BY STEP RECIPE:
- Mix room temperature butter, wholewheat and all purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, Piri Piri Powder and oregano together in a bowl and add a few drops of cold water to it.
- Take a pan, put the flame on medium heat and add the milk and about 2 spoons of sugar until the sugar dissolves in it.
- Switch off the flame and add the sugar and milk mixture to the dough and Mix, Mix and Mix! The dough is going to be very soft. You can do a taste check and add salt, if necessary. The dough will be slightly sweet and delicious. This is how soft and light the dough would be:
- Dust your hands with flour, take a small amount of the dough and roll it into a ball.
- Dust the surface and the rolling pin and roll it as thin as you can. Make it thinner than your normal Roti/chapatti. It’s going to be very stretchable, and the elasticity would resemble that of a Rumali Roti.
- Roll, roll and roll it more. A great way to know if it’s thin enough is to hold it up in your hand and you’ll be able to almost see your fingers through it.
- Sprinkle some more Piri Piri Powder and oregano for enhanced taste.
- Cut it into thin 2 inch strips with a sharp knife.
- Cut them further into rectangles. This is how thin they should be:
- You can even use a cookie cutter to cut them.
- Place them on a greased baking tray or a microwavable safe plate. There’s no need to keep distance between them, but still, I recommend doing so to prevent these to stick together.
- Bake them in the microwave for about 3 minutes 40 seconds or till they look and taste crunchy.
- Let them cool off before putting them in an airtight jar or container.
Looks yum? Well, it is! I feel hungry just by reading this post. I need this, RIGHT NOW.
