Woven Hot Dog Rug
    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out pizza dough on a lightly floured surface. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into seven even lengthwise strips. Transfer the strips to a greased baking sheet. Starting at one end, fold back first, third and fifth strips. Place a hot dog on the flat strips then fold those same strips back over the hot dog. Next, fold back the second and fourth strips over the hot dog and place a second hot dog down. Continue to weave all eight dogs into the bread in this fashion.
    For the Deluxe Version:
    1. Fold back first third and fifth strips. Place bacon strip on dough. Sprinkle with cheddar and then add the hot dog. Continue to weave the dough as directed above. Brush melted butter over the finished weave and sprinkle with coarse salt. For the Deluxe version, sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake at 375°F for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let the weave cool for 5 minutes and then cut into pieces. Serve with ketchup, mustard, ranch dressing or any of your favorite condiments.
