• 2 tubes of pizza dough, recommended brand Pillsbury
  • 8 all-beef, good-quality hot dogs (turkey or veggie may be substituted)
  • 2 cups sauerkraut, drained
  • Your favorite mustard for hot dogs
  • A drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)


Serves: Depends how loud your stomach's barkin', but two apiece will give you 4 servings.


Preheat oven to 400F.

Lightly coat a cookie sheet with a small amount of EVOO. Lay out the pizza dough vertically (the long way up and down) on a flat surface and make one long cut down the middle.

Then, make four four-inch-wide strips across.

Squeeze or spread mustard the length of the strip and top with about 1 to 2 tablespoons of sauerkraut.

Grab your dogs and place one on each strip, then roll up the dough into a hot dog cocoon. Slice off any excess dough on the ends and discard.

Lay your Frankenstuffers on the cooking sheet and pop them in the oven for about 18-20 minutes, or until nice and golden brown. Yum-O!
