Homemade Garlic Cheese Breadsticks

Serves: 12

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.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons dry active yeast
3/4 to 1 cups lukewarm water
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 tablespoons salted butter
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 cups italian shredded cheese blend
1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together flour, garlic salt, sugar, yeast and slowly add in water.

Mix together until dough is created.

Using your hands knead for one minute and form a ball.

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.

Next sprinkle dough with shredded cheese then parmesan cheese. Lastly, sprinkle with parsley.

Bake for 15-17 minutes or until dough has browned and cheese is melted and golden.

Cut bread into sticks and serve with warm pizza sauce if desired.
