Football-Shaped Stuffed Bread sticks
2 8-oz pkg cream cheese, softened and divided
1/4 cup ranch dressing
1/2 tsp garlic powder
10-oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
7-oz jar roasted red peppers, chopped
1 cup pepper Jack cheese, shredded
5 slices fully-cooked thick-cut bacon, coarsely chopped
11-oz can refrigerated thin crust pizza dough
1 tbs water
Heat oven to 425°.
Reserve 4 oz cream cheese for later use. Mix remaining cream cheese with dressing and garlic powder in medium bowl until blended. Add spinach, peppers, shredded cheese and bacon. Mix well.
Unroll pizza dough onto lightly floured cutting board. Press into 16×14-inch rectangle. Spread cream cheese mixture into 14×8-inch oval shape on center of dough. Fold dough over cream cheese mixture to completely enclose cream cheese mixture. Press edges of dough together to seal.
Cover dough with large sheet of parchment, then baking sheet. Flip over. Gently press top of dough to even out surface of football. Starting about 2 inches from both ends of football, make 2-inch-long cuts, 1 inch apart, along both long sides of dough. Gently twist dough strips. Beat egg and water until blended. Brush onto dough.
Bake 25 to 28 min or until golden brown. Cool 5 min. Spoon reserved cream cheese into re-sealable plastic bag. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag. Use to pipe cream cheese onto top of football for the laces. Serves 12
