Cheese Breadsticks

If you are trying to dine in a little more then these cheese breadsticks are a must!! They go perfectly with this Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza or this Creamy Tuscan Chicken.

I don’t know about you but I think it’s hard to beat gooey melty cheese. Especially gooey melty cheese on top of bread! *SWOON* #carbsforlife

Well, maybe it can be beat when dunked into some extra pizza sauce.

I mean, pretty much no other food matters, right?!


  • Pizza Dough: Use homemade or store bought. This recipe calls for 1 pound of dough.
  • Butter
  • Garlic PowderOreganoBasil: You could also substitute Italian seasoning for the oregano and basil if you prefer.
  • Salt: Just a little bit… me it adds so much flavor. If you are using salted butter you can omit this. I don’t buy salted butter because I like to control the amount of salt I add to food.
  • Cheese: I am using mozzarella and parmesan. But feel free to use any great melting cheese.

Easy as 1..2..3

  1. Shape the breadsticks. You can use a rolling pin or stretch the dough by hand. If you need a little help stretching your dough watch this video on How to Stretch Pizza Dough. I’ll be honest I don’t toss the dough in the air. I stop before that point and use it and it has always turned out fine.
  2. Top with butter, garlic, cheese, and herbs!
  3. Bake! I like to bake mine on a baking stone but you can also use a cookie sheet or this pizza pan.
