I was never really a pizza person until we moved to Colorado. We spent a month in a hotel and then another week in our house without our belongings so we ate a lot of pizza and I came to love breadsticks (and stuffed crust pizza but we’re talking breadsticks right now). I suggest ordering pizza these days just so I can get breadsticks.

I saw this recipe and needed to make it ASAP. Ridiculously good. They taste just like the kind of breadsticks you would get at a pizza place and they’re so simple! And cheaper than ordering out because I’m almost positive you have all the ingredients already in your kitchen.

Cheesy Breadsticks

adapted from Lauren's Latest


1 unbaked pizza dough (homemade or store-bought)
2 tablespoons salted butter
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded


  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Stretch pizza dough to fit 12-inch pizza pan or a regular sheet pan. (Use cornmeal to work with dough if it’s sticky.)
  2. Melt butter over low heat in a small saucepan. Add garlic and cook just for a few seconds, until fragrant.
  3. Use a pastry brush to brush the butter over the dough. Sprinkle the cheeses over top.
  4. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and starting to brown. Let cool slightly before cutting.
