Ingredients:

  • - 12 ounces spinach, frozen, chopped ; thawed and squeezed dry
  • - 6 ounce vegan cream cheese ; softened
  • - 6 cloves garlic ; minced
  • - 2 Tbsp everything bagel seasoning
  • - 1 cup vegan cheddar cheese ; or vegan Mozzarella cheese
  • - 1 tube refrigerated thin crust pizza dough
  • - 2 Tbsp avocado oil
  • - 1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
  • - 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. For Filling: In a bowl, beat together the spinach and vegan cream cheese. Add garlic and everything bagel seasoning. Beat to combine. Add 1/2 cup vegan cheddar cheese and beat to combine. For dip: Plant Junkie Ranch dressing To shape Christmas Tree: - Unroll the pizza crust on a piece of parchment paper. Align the paper and the crust so that the narrow edge is facing you. - Using a pizza slicer, cut the crust from the lower corner to the top center. This gives you one large triangle and two smaller ones. Transfer the smaller triangles to the second piece of parchment paper, placing the long side edges together, to make another large triangle. The dough will stretch out a little as you move it around – no biggie, just gently tug it into the shape you want, pressing the two halves together in the middle. This will be the base of the breadsticks. Give the base a short little trunk. - Spread the spinach dip over the base. - Sprinkle on the remaining vegan cheese, and then top with the first triangle of dough. You’ll likely have to tug at the dough a little bit to make sure it completely covers the base triangle. - Using a pizza cutter, cut slices from the middle to each edge about every inch down the triangle as shown below. Don’t slice all the way across; leave about an inch down the middle of the tree intact. - Grab each “slice” and twist it to form a twisted roll shape. For the top slice that’s very short, you’ll just give it a half twist; as you go further down the tree and hit longer slices you’ll give them two or three full twists. - Bake at 400 degrees for about 22 minutes until the bottom is completely cooked through. The top is going to get nice and browned, but make sure to check that the bottom is cooked through. If you are cooking on a heavy cookie sheet, as I did, you may want to cook this on the lower rack in your oven. - Once out of the oven you can brush the breadsticks with avocado oil, garlic salt, and seasonings. - Serve it up while it’s still warm.
