Ingredients
  

  • 1 tube Pillsbury pizza dough
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • flour, for dusting the cutting board
  • 2 (12-ounce) packages cocktail wieners (remove from packing juices and pat dry)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Grease the inside of an 8-inch springform pan with cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl melt the butter and add the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and red pepper flakes.
  • On a lightly floured surface remove the pizza crust from the tube and unroll onto the floured surface. Square it up.
  • Using a pizza cutter cut strips 1 inch by 2 inches.
  • Brush the crust with the butter mixture (there will be some leftover for later).
  • Wrap each cocktail wiener in a small strip of dough and pinch the seam together.
  • Place the pigs in a blanket standing up in the springform pan, not packed too tightly.
  • Place the springform pan on a cookie sheet.
  • Brush the remaining butter mixture over the top of the filled pan.
  • Bake for 30 minutes covered loosely with foil and then remove the foil and bake another 15 minutes to allow to brown.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan.
  • Serve with the dipping sauces.

Notes

  • The Pillsbury brand of dough is bigger than generic or grocery store brands, so take that into account if you purchase another brand to prepare this recipe. 
  • Place the springform pan on a baking sheet. This is sooo important so that you don’t end up with a mess in your oven from the melted butter and seasonings dripping!
