I love eating this at restaurants, but this homemade version is even better! Wowza!


– 1 lb package of pre-made pizza dough or homemade dough
– 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
– 3 cloves of garlic, minced
– 1 tsp Italian seasoning
– 1/2 tsp garlic powder
– 1/4 tsp salt
– 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (or a blend of your favorite melting cheeses)
– 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
– Fresh parsley, chopped for garnish (optional)
1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat to prevent sticking.
2. Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface until it’s about 1/2 inch thick rectangle. Transfer it to your prepared baking sheet.
3. In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, minced garlic, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt. Brush this savory mixture generously over the top of your dough.
4. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese and parmesan evenly over the buttered dough. Don’t be shy, this is all about that cheesy goodness!
5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling and the edges are a beautiful golden brown.
6. Let them cool slightly before cutting the dough into breadstick portions with a pizza cutter or a sharp knife.
7. If you like garnishes, a little sprinkle of chopped parsley can add color and a fresh taste right before serving.
Variations & Tips
– For an extra cheesy experience, try adding a layer of provolone or gouda between the dough and the mozzarella.
– If you’re catering to the little ones or anyone with a milder palate, you can skip the garlic and just go for buttery, cheesy sticks.
– Those with a more adventurous taste might want to sprinkle on some chili flakes before baking for a tiny kick.
– If anyone has dietary restrictions, you can easily find gluten-free dough or vegan cheese alternatives to suit their needs.
– For a mess-free alternative to freshly minced garlic, garlic powder or pre-minced garlic from the jar works in a pinch.

I do hope these breadsticks turn your family dinners into something even more special. They’re a simple pleasure, meant to be pulled apart, enjoyed, and shared. Happy baking, friends!
