First start with that tasty pizza dough. Once it's all mixed up and rested, take the dough and divide it in half.
Roll out a nice rectangle. Oh I think this one is about 15 inches long, yes I just guess I never measure much, just ask Mr. Bacon!
Next cut the dough about every 2 inches around the pizza only up to where the sauce is. Do this only along both long sides, not the short ends.
As for the other half of pizza dough, you can repeat all the steps above and have two pizza braids or you can go ahead and make some cheesy bread to go with it! To make it first start with the steps above to make a large rectangle. Then I melt some butter (about 1/4 stick) and add some garlic bread seasoning to it. It's from Tastefully Simple and so not thrifty, but one bottle lasts us about 6 months. You can feel free to add in some garlic powder, Italian seasonings, Mrs. Dash garlic & herb or what ever you have on hand. Or you can just skip adding things to your butter. After all it's suppose to be a fun relaxing night right?
Then brush your rectangle with the melted butter. Next sprinkle on your favorite shredded cheese. We use a 3 cheese blend.
Now it's time to braid it all up. You can see a little better the way I cross mine over, I'm not picky on this step so if it doesn't look all that pretty it's ok, I just tell people Mr. Bacon did it!
Next toss them both on a greased baking sheet. Yes this is a bit tricky with the transfer from the cutting board to the pan. I just grab it at both ends and pick it up and set it on the pan. It usually doesn't fall apart. And if it does, I just piece it back together.
On top of the cheesy bread I brush on more of the melted garlic butter. This is Little Boy Bacon's job. He loves to paint dinner, and I love that everyone gets to do a part. If you're wondering what Mr. Bacon got to help with it was sampling the pizza toppings! Place in a 400* oven for 12-15 minutes or until the tops are nice and golden brown and the cheese is all melty.
