  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Roll out the pizza dough and cut into 10 long strips lengthwise and 5-6 long strips across. You should have about 50-60 individual pieces that are about an inch long.
  2. Wrap each smokie in a strip of dough. For any remaining dough, wrap around the cheese cubes as desired.
  3. For the everything bagel topping: in a small bowl stir together the sesame seeds, poppyseeds, dried minced garlic, dried minced onion, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  4. Grease a springform pan or round cake pan. Arrange the wrapped hot dogs and cheese into a circle, stacking as you go. OPTIONAL: Place a ramekin in the center to keep the shape as it cooks.
  5. Brush the whisked egg over the top of the dough bits. Sprinkle the everything bagel topping over the dough as desired. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the dough is golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Serve with warmed honey mustard or your favorite BBQ sauce. Enjoy!
