Ultimate Garlic Breadsticks and Garlic Bread Seasoning

My family loves pizza, so much so that we actually have a weekly pizza and movie night. We rent a couple of movies we want to see, and enjoy them while munching on homemade pizza. What goes best with pizza? Why bread sticks of course! I never have had much luck with shaping bread sticks though, they always wind up way to big on the ends and misshapen in their shape. While it didn't affect the taste any, it always bothered me.

Until I found this super easy and yummy recipe. These Ultimate Garlic Bread Sticks are easy to make and taste amazing, with no shaping! You just pat the dough out onto your baking sheet, pre-cut with a pizza cutter, season and bake. They're buttery, salty, cheesy, garlicky sticks of yumminess that your whole family will enjoy.

Ultimate Garlic Breadsticks


1 1/2 cups warm water
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 - 4 cups flour
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup grated Parmesan
2 tablespoons Johnny's Garlic Seasoning (recipe below)


Mix water, sugar and yeast together in the bowl of a stand mixer. Let sit for 5 minutes.
Add salt along with flour, one cup at a time, until well incorporated.
Mix on high for 5 minutes, then let the dough rest for 5 minutes.
Melt the butter and pour half of it into a jelly roll pan (large cookie sheet).
Place the dough in the center of the pan. Let rest for 2 - 3 minutes, then pat the dough out flat until it reaches the edges of the pan.
Pour the other half of the butter onto the dough, and spread it around evenly.
Sprinkle the Johnny's Garlic Seasoning over the dough, followed by the Parmesan cheese.
With a pizza cutter cut the dough into three rows lengthwise, and then 12 rows height wise
Put the pan into a 170 degree F pre-heated oven for 10 minutes. (The breadsticks should rise about 1 inch).
Turn oven up to 350 degrees F and bake for 10 - 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
Remove from oven and let rest again for 5 minutes. Redefine the cutting lines with the pizza cutter and serve.

Garlic Bread Seasoning


1/2 cup powdered Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons Kosher salt
2 teaspoons oregano
2 teaspoons basil
2 teaspoons marjoram
2 teaspoons parsley


Combine ingredients in a jar, and shake to combine.
