Even those who don't enjoy a party have to acknowledge that there is one good part about an awkward social gathering – the food. These mini twists were designed with a potluck in mind. The simple dough is wrapped around a zesty tahini, chive, and lemon paste before being baked golden-brown and topped with sesame seeds.

Preparation

  1. Combine the chives, lemon juice, tahini, and salt in a blender. You should end up with a thick, green paste that is slightly coarse. Taste it and add more salt as needed. Set it aside.
  2. Roll out the prepared pizza dough to 1/6-inch thick. Dust with flour
  3. Using a 3 1/2-inch biscuit cutter (or large can) cut out circles of dough. Re-roll and cut out more as needed. You should end up with about 24 rounds.
  4. Preheat the oven to 425°F Spread a layer of chive-tahini paste over each circle.
  5. Roll up each circle tight, like a burrito. Cut each roll in half lengthwise. Twist each half back together, around each other.
  6. Place twists on parchment-lined cookie sheet, brush tops lightly with olive oil, and sprinkle them with sesame seeds.
  7. Bake them for 18 minutes, until they're golden and toasty.
