Ingredients

3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon kosher salt

1/8 teaspoon cayenne

1 cup grated sharp white Cheddar (about 4 ounces)

2 teaspoons mustard seeds

Directions

Preheat oven to 400F. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut butter into bits and in a food processor pulse with flour, 1 teaspoon salt, and cayenne until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add Cheddar and pulse until mixture forms a dough. Form dough into a disk. Chill dough, wrapped in plastic wrap, until firm, at least 30 minutes, and up to 2 days.

On a lightly floured surface with a lightly floured rolling pin roll out dough into a 16- by 4-inch rectangle (about 1/4 inch thick). Trim edges of rectangle and lightly brush rectangle with water. Sprinkle rectangle with mustard seeds and remaining 2 teaspoons salt. Gently roll rolling pin over dough to make seeds and salt adhere.

With a sharp long knife cut rectangle crosswise into roughly 1/3-inch-wide sticks. Transfer sticks with a spatula to baking sheet and arrange about 3/4 inch apart. Bake sticks in middle of oven until golden, about 10 minutes, and transfer to a rack to cool. Cheddar sticks may be kept in an airtight container at cool room temperature 1 week, or frozen 1 month.
Makes about 45 sticks.

"Someone who made this recipe definitely knows a thing or two about good pizza! I've come across so many recipes that say they are pizza sauce when it's really some variant of marinara that you would put on pasta...they are not the same. This sauce is thick, robust, and full of flavor and based on the pizza I've had in New York, it is the real deal! My go to recipe from now on!" - dan w.
