We’re not sure there’s a more perfect food than hotdogs, but if there is, it has to be pizza. That’s why this delicious pigs in a blanket recipe combines the two into one of the most delightful taste treats ever invented. 

To top it off, we make this dish with our own Premium Quality Texas Beef Garlic Bohemian Brats. Here’s what you’ll need:

Here are the steps:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. 
  1. Place the sausages on a baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes or until fully cooked. Turn them halfway. Let them cool and cut them into 3-inch-long pieces. This should yield about 12 pieces of sausage. 
  1. Line a second baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick spray. 
  1. On the tray, roll out the pizza dough into a 6-by-12-inch rectangle, sprinkle evenly with the Italian seasoning, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese. 
  1. Cut the dough crosswise into twelve 1-inch-wide strips.
  1. Wrap a strip of cheesy, herbed dough around each sausage piece and set them each on the prepared baking sheet with the loose ends of the dough facing down. 
  1. Brush the dough with olive oil, and bake at 375 F for 12 to 15 minutes or until the dough is golden brown. Serve with marinara sauce and ranch dressing.
