TRICKSTERS/TREATERS HOTDOG SPECIALTIES
8 large or 16 small servings
Unroll pizza dough; with kitchen shears or a sharp knife, cut dough in half lengthwise; cut each dough piece into 4 equal-size rectangles/pieces, making 8 dough pieces. If using biscuits, unroll and separate biscuits into individual biscuits; press each biscuit out into a rectangle shape. Place pizza dough pieces or biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet, at least ½-inch apart. Place a hotdog/frank on each dough piece or biscuit lengthwise. Spoon about 1 to 2 teaspoon(s) chili or taco sauce or pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce or salsa lengthwise over each hotdog/frank. Sprinkle about ½ teaspoon onion and then ½ to 1 teaspoon cheese over each hotdog/frank. Roll or close dough of each, pressing each dough piece or biscuit together to seal. Turn each hotdog/frank "packet" seam-side down on baking sheet. Bake in a preheated moderate oven (375 degrees F.) for 18 to 20 minutes or until "packets" are done and golden brown. May brush the top of each with beaten egg white about 5 minutes before end of baking time, if desired. Or, may brush top of each hot baked hotdog/frank "packet" with melted butter or margarine, if desired. Serve hot or at room temperature. For small servings, cut each "packet" in half to form two "packets".
Note: May grill or broil hotdogs/franks or brown hotdogs/franks in a skillet on the top of the range before baking in pizza dough or biscuits, if desired.
Variation: Add a dab of favorite prepared mustard to each hotdog "packet".
