Grilled Pigs in a Blanket

I love a good quick dinner. I love cooking something that I KNOW for a certainty that my 3 year old will eat, which doesn't happen often. These fit both of those criteria. It was definitely a fun recipe to throw on the grill and turned out great :)

Grilled Pigs in a Blanket
From: Mmm Cafe

12 hot dogs
American cheese, if desired
1 recipe pizza dough (see below), cut into 12 long strips

Heat your grill to 400 degrees.  Grill each hot dog as to put grill marks on them.  Don’t worry if they are not all the way cooked through. Remove from grill and place on each dough strip a half a slice of American cheese (if desired) and top with one grilled hot dog. Wrap dough in a twisting motion around hotdog.  Spray outside with nonstick spray and place on the top rack of the grill.  Let cook there for 13 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally, or until golden brown.

Pizza Dough
1 1/2 cup warm water
2 Tbs oil
4 and 1/4 cup flour
2 tsp salt
3 Tbs sugar
a little less than 1 tbs. rapid rise yeast
Combine sugar, yeast, and warm water in mixer. Allow to sit for 3 minutes. Add oil, flour, and salt. Knead until combined.
