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

Ingredients

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

Instructions

  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.
