Twist strips several times; place 1/2 inch apart on a greased baking sheet. Brush with additional olive oil. Bake in a 400 F oven for 12 to 15 minutes or till golden brown. Remove. Cool on wire racks. Repeat with the remaining dough, cheese, black pepper, and olive oil. Place in an airtight container.
