Cheesy Garlic Sticks
Makes 1 pizza

1 premade pizza dough from a pizzeria
olive oil for brushing dough
1 ball of mozzarella (not the kind in water, the kind that is vacuum sealed), you will use about half of a ball, depending on the size of it
1 tablespoon minced garlic, with flavored oil
Italian spices

1. Prepare the crust: Transfer to a baking pizza pan. Brush dough lightly all over with olive oil.

2. Cut or pull apart the cheese with your fingers and spread all over the dough. 

3. Drizzle the pizza with a little of the garlic flavored oil from the minced garlic, and sprinkle with minced garlic over the entire pizza. Add just a bit of Italian spices to the top, and bake. For my dough, they instruct you to bake at 425 for 12-18 minutes. (See detailed instructions here)

When musician John Legend visited Martha, he shared his recipe for this favorite Southern comfort food, with generous helpings of both Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses; evaporated milk creates a creamy texture under the golden-brown surface.

Ever wanted to bottle the universe and put it on your shelf? Since it wouldn’t really fit, you can easily make the universe seem to be enclosed in your hands. You only need three things: a paint brush, glow-in-the-dark-paint and mason jars of any size. You can easily dip the brush in paint and add dots to cover the entire jar and make it seems as though you truly have captured the stars.
