This recipe is sponsored by [ yellow tail ]® wine. Delight the Puppy Bowl fans in your pack with these stuffed pizza bones. Made with two kinds of melty cheese and a garlic-herb topping, they'll have everyone barking for more.



  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Cut the mozzarella into 1/2-by-1/2-by-2-inch-long sticks and set aside. Mix together the Parmesan, oregano, sesame seeds, red pepper flakes, salt and garlic together in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Pat the pizza dough into a 16-by-8-inch rectangle with a long side facing you. Using a sharp knife or pizza wheel, cut the dough in half lengthwise. Quarter each piece so you have eight 4-by-4-inch squares. Spread 1/2 teaspoon ricotta in the middle of a square and place a piece of mozzarella on top. Fold the dough over the cheese to completely encase it. Starting from the center, pinch the seams closed, carefully pushing out any air as you go. Repeat with the remaining dough and cheese.
  3. Working one at a time, put a piece of dough into the seasoning mixture and press down firmly to coat all sides. On a clean, dry work surface roll the dough gently but firmly into a torpedo shape that is about 10 inches long. Tie the dough into a knot at each end and place it seam-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining pieces of stuffed dough. Brush with the butter and sprinkle on any remaining seasoning mix. Put in a warm place and let rise until puffy, about 30 minutes 
  4. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. 
  5. Transfer the bones to the oven and bake, rotating the pan halfway through, until golden brown all over, about 10 minutes. Serve warm with marinara sauce on the side.
