Homemade Garlic Cheese Breadsticks
The breadsticks start with an easy pizza dough recipe which is perfectly chewy and flavorful (thanks to a hint of garlic salt) on the inside but crispy on the outside then a melted garlic and Italian seasoning butter brushed on, and covered by a thick layer of shredded cheeses, parmesan and parsley.
Dovetailing tip: Double the recipe for these breadsticks. Use the additional pizza crust to make the dessert for today - Fruit Pizza.

Spread 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a separate bowl and transfer pizza dough to that bowl. Cover with a paper towel for 1 hour or until dough has doubled.
Reheat oven to 425 degrees.
Roll out dough on your pizza stone or baking sheet.
Add butter, garlic powder and Italian seasoning to a small bowl and microwave until melted. Whisk together then brush on dough.
