Domino's Cinnatwists and Garlic Twisty Bread
I haven't had their Cinnatwists yet (and I probably won't to be truthful...
I won't give them any more of my money again... besides, there's a heck
of a lot better pizza places out there besides Domino's). But when I worked
there several years ago, any kind of the "twisty" side items that Domino's
served (i.e. their garlic twisty bread) was made out of their regular hand tossed
- Here's what we did (for example) to make the Garlic Twisty Bread...
we took a medium sized pizza dough ball and "slapped" it out into
a round like we would to make a pizza... but instead of saucing it and making
a pizza, we took each dough prep and cut it into 1-inch strips using a pizza
cutter. Each strip was then held at one end, while the other end was twisted
by three one-half turns (or easier, three "flips" of the dough strip).
The twisted strips were then placed on a baking rack and run through the oven
one time. When baked, the twisted bread strips were coated or basted with butter
and then sprinkled with a garlic/herb seasoning... voila!... Domino's Twisty
- Now, I'm guessing that they are doing the exact same thing with these
Cinnatwist things, except they are sprinkling some kind of cinnamon/sugar topping
on them instead of using a garlic/herb seasoning. Try this... go to the store
and get a roll of unbaked pizza crust (i.e. Pillsbury). Roll it out and cut
it into the strips like I described above. Make the twists in each one and then
bake until golden brown according to package directions. When they get out of
the oven, immediately brush with a generous amount of melted butter. Prepare
a desired amount of Cinnamon/Sugar mixture (probably 4 parts sugar to 1 part
ground cinnamon) and shake well to combine. Roll the buttered twisty breads
in the Cinnamon/Sugar mixture and serve warm. The end product will probably
be very similar to Domino's Cinnatwists.
