Cast Iron

Pokey Stix (Cheesy Garlic Bread Sticks)

A Gville classic. Easily reheats in the airfryer, and don’t forget the marinara!


  1. Cast iron skillet
  2. Butter
  3. Fresh or minced garlic
  4. Garlic powder
  5. Pizza dough
  6. Shredded mozzarella cheese


  2. Put cast iron on stove on low heat
  3. While this is warming up, hold a knob of butter with paper towel and smear it around the bottom and sides of inside the skillet (it’s like using a glue stick!)
  4. When all shiny with butter, take off heat and let sit to the side
  5. Put a bit of flour on your counter and work the dough out until it’s round (doesn’t have to be perfect)
  6. Lay dough across the bottom of the skillet and push up the edges onto the sides of the pan. It’s possible one pizza dough is a bit too much for this, so you can get rid of the excess
  7. On the side warm and mix 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 clove of fresh/minced garlic
  8. Using a brush, baste the dough ENTIRELY. Make sure you got that WAP (Wet Ass Pizza) so really cover every inch of dough, even the edges.
  9. Sprinkle on garlic powder, black pepper, whatever you want on there. Can’t go wrong with more seasonings.
  10. Hella mozzarella time, make sure to really cover all the way out to the edges. The cheese that’s touching the cast iron will be the crunchy good stuff.
  11. Bake at 400° for 20ish minutes. You’ll know by their look.
  12. Eat Up!
