Riesling Cheesy Twists

4 Tbsp olive oil
2 large cookie sheets
3 cans of pizza dough
1 stick of butter
1 large bowl
3 lbs shredded cheese – yellow or white
1 Tbsp Rosemary
1 cup Riesling
2 cups chopped tomatoes
Large platter

Time for some twists: 
To start, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and then use a cooking brush to apply 4 tablespoons of olive oil onto 2 large cookie sheets. Next, open 3 cans of pizza dough and slice the dough into 4-inch squares. Place the dough on the cookie sheets. Once the slicing process is complete, sit the cookie sheets to the side.

The cheesy mixture: 
In a large bowl, combine shredded cheese, Rosemary, Riesling and chopped tomatoes. Stir the mixture until well blended. The cheese should be sticky but not too wet. Now it is time to combine the cheese and dough...place 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture in the center of each 4-inch square. You may have some cheese mixture left. That is OK – you can freeze it and use it later, if desired. Next, fold each end of the squares over the cheese mixture into whatever shape you want: a ball, a rectangle, a curved object or some other shape. The cheese mixture must be completely covered. Bake the twists until golden brown – about 10 minutes.

Once done and cool, place the twists on a large platter. Serve this quick dish at your next Riesling tasting or at your next gathering.
