Mozzarella Fails.

“If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.” 

Contrary to the quote above, I chose to expose my failures today. I've failed not once, but twice at making baked mozzarella cheese snacks. I just can't get it right. 

Recently, I attempted the homemade mozzarella sticks. Looked easy enough and I had the right ingredients. Seemed fool-proof! 


I was so bummed that the cheese just oozed out all over. 

Then a few weeks later, I attempted what seemed like another fool-proof snack: Pizza balls. Literally there are three ingredients. Pizza dough, pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese sticks. I made sure that the dough was sealed tight but somehow it got out again!


So, I failed again! 

Do any of you have an actual fool-proof way of keeping the cheese from getting everywhere? I need help. . . 

[un] Happy Cheesin' it!

    1. Okay, and let me know if you find one, too! I love mozzarella sticks so I'd love to make them at home! I wonder if deep frying them would work instead of baking, but that sort of defeats the purpose, hm?

  2. Freeze your cheese sticks before you coat them and bake them. ;)

    1. Oh okay! For how long, Erin? Will they still be melted inside the stick after baking? Or will they be more solid. I like melty :)

  3. I think i know the solution... leave an airvent at the top. Whenever we make pizza pies we make sure there's a slit on the top of the dough for the heat to escape. Try it, might help.
