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.

- 1 unbaked pizza dough (homemade or store-bought)
- 2 tablespoons salted butter
- 2 cloves garlic (finely minced)
- Â¼ cup Parmesan cheese
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese (shredded)
- 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 itâ€™s sticky.)
- Melt butter over low heat in a small saucepan. Add garlic and cook just for a few seconds, until fragrant.
- Use a pastry brush to brush the butter over the dough. Sprinkle the cheeses over top.
- Bake for 10 â€“ 12 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and starting to brown. Let cool slightly before cutting.

Hi Amanda, I am stopping by to let you know that this is the recipe I picked for February Secret Recipe Club. It was wonderful. My mouth thanks you for sharing this recipe, my hips not so much. I will be making this often. Have a great week.
This was one of the very first recipes I ever pinned and I keep putting off making them because I know I’ll gain 5 lbs eating the entire batch myself :)

I want some so bad right now! I put this on my to-make list easily sometime in the summer and still haven’t got around to.
Lauren at Keep It Sweet says

I’m not a pizza person either, I prefer more complete meals but I do like it once in a while and I have to say that I would’n’t mind to to make these cheesy breadsticks, I’d prefer them intead of pizza

Yum, that sounds sooo good! It’s all cold and snowy here today, and even though it’s first thing in the morning, some cheesey breadsticks sound pretty good!
Rachel @ Not Rachael Ray says
This would be very, very dangerous!
