Pizza braid

Tonight we had this delicious pizza braid for dinner. It was sooo good. It's like pizza and bread sticks all in one.

Prepare you pizza dough. I used this recipe.
Roll it out into a rectangular shape. 
Using a pizza cutter, cut the edges into strips.
Put your pizza toppings down the middle.
Braid it by taking a piece from the right and laying it across the middle and then from the left. Repeat this until all of the side strips are folded into the middle.
Put it a warm place to rise, and rise for about 45 minutes.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Brush with garlic butter, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. I liked to pick off the top pieces and eat them like little mini delicious bread sticks. The bottom part I ate like a thin crust pizza. YUM! 
I can't wait to see what other foods I can make into a braided treat!
