pigs in a blanket

  • Preheat oven to 375˚F.
  • Brush the bottom and sides of a 9" springform pan with melted butter and set aside.
  • Lightly flour a clean surface and roll dough, until 1/8 inch thick (can divide dough in half and roll half at a time, if easier). Cut slab of dough into 1 1/2” by 2” pieces. Wrap each lil’ smokey in a piece of pizza dough and pinch the seam shut.
  • Once all smokies have been wrapped, vertically line the pigs in a blanket around the side of the pan (seam side Inward) and continue to do so until the entire pan is filled and pigs in a blanket are snug, but not too tightly packed together.
  • Tightly cover pan with foil and bake for about 30 minutes.
  • Uncover pigs in a blanket and continue to bake for an additional 15 minutes or until the top is nicely browned.
  • Remove from heat and allow to loaf cool, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove pull apart bread from spring form pan and serve immediately with cheese sauce.
