OMG! Cheese and Bread - What a Recipe!

WARNING!!  The picture below is going to make your mouth water and your food senses go wild.
Pictured below is a recipe from Life's Ambrosia for Cheesy Rosemary Bread Sticks.  I believe this is going to be a keeper.  I am going to try it on Sunday as a surprise for CH while he watches golf, football and NASCAR.

Take a look.  I have copied it word for word so there will be no mistakes in making it.
Serves 4 - 6
Prep time: 1 hr
Cook time: 15 min
2/3 cup warm water
1 1/4 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 garlic cloves, minced
8 - 10 slices mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
Prepare the dough first by pouring the warm water into the bowl of a stand mixer with the dough hook attached. Sprinkle yeast over the top. Allow to proof for 5 minutes. Add in 1 1/2 cups flour and salt. Turn mixer on to medium-high. And mix just until the dough comes together. If the dough seems sticky add remaining tablespoons of flour. Turn the mixer down to medium and continue mixing until a smooth ball forms. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise in a warm, dark place for 45 - 60 minutes or until it has doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 430 degrees.
After the dough has risen, punch it down and roll it out on a lightly floured surface. It does not need to be a perfect circle or square.
Brush olive oil over the dough. Sprinkle salt and minced garlic cloves over the top.
Place the mozzarella cheese in a single layer. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese and rosemary on top.
Bake in preheated oven for 12 - 15 minutes or until cheese has melted and crust starts to brown. Turn on the broiler for 1 - 2 minutes or until cheese browns slightly. Slice and serve immediately.

I am so ready for this.  Go forth and make and bake.

Meanwhile .... keep it simple and make it real.
