What's for Dinner? Pizza with Breadsticks

By now, you know that we have pizza night each Friday.  This week, I modified my original dough recipe that I shared here by substituting 1 cup of whole wheat flour for the all purpose flour.  I am trying to increase our whole wheat usage (because it is better for us and I have alot available).  Also, I made cheese breadsticks with marinara dipping sauce.  To make the cheese breadsticks, I used the pizza dough recipe and put it into a rectangle pan and cut it into sticks (similar to those you get at Pizza Hut).  After that, I brushed some oil on the breadsticks, sprinkled them with garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasonings, and mozzerella cheese and baked them with the pizzas.  They were a hit!  I really needed to use a smaller pan so that the sticks would have been thicker, but my 5-year old liked them just fine the way they were.  To make the marinara sauce, I poured some of the pizza sauce (canned spaghetti sauce with a can of tomato paste added) into a small boiler.  Added 1 Tbs. sugar and cooked over low to warm.
