4th of July Star Hot Dogs
  • 1 Pillsbury Thin Pizza Crust
  • 1 Package Hot Dogs
  • 1 Block Colby Jack Cheese
  • Skewer Sticks
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Use a star cookie cutter to cut the cheese. Make sure your cheese stars are thick enough to slide onto your skewer sticks.
  3. Place the hot dogs on the skewer sticks, leaving a little room at the top for the cheese stars.
  4. Roll out the raw pizza dough and use a pizza cutter to cut into 1/2 inch thick strips.
  5. Wrap each hot dog with a strip of pizza dough.
  6. Once all the hot dogs are wrapped, place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the pizza crust is golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and place a star on top.
  8. Serve to your babes on the 4th of July!
