Restaurant Style Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks


When you are craving pizza, but have no toppings on hand, you make these breadsticks.  That is what the little man and I did this last weekend.  If you didn't read Monday's post, you can read all about our lovely weekend here.

And when I say lovely, I'm being sarcastic.

You also need to check out that post, as I'm giving away a Martha Stewart cookbook.  I'll choose a winner tomorrow!


Like I've said I prefer dipping anything in marinara sauce.  Breadsticks, pizza crusts, my fingers, etc.  I thank the Italians daily for inventing it and making it a staple in our American lives.

These breadsticks are so simple and are restaurant quality.  You need to try these.  I used my classic pizza dough recipe, but you can use any dough you prefer, although I will admit homemade dough tastes SO. MUCH. BETTER.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees, place pizza stone on top rack.  When pizza stone is hot, take out of oven to assemble breadsticks.  Stretch dough to desired sized and thickness and lay on stone.  Brush dough with olive oil.  Sprinkle with onion powder, garlic salt (or fresh garlic), Parmesan cheese and provolone cheese.

Bake for just 10 minutes or until crust is crispy and cheese is bubbly.  Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

Little miss even gnawed on a breadstick in between bouts of sneezing and coughing.  I can't believe a year ago I was 8 months pregnant with her and the little man wasn't even two years old yet.  My kids are growing way too fast...

Don't forget about my giveaway - still time to enter!

  2. You must have read my mind... Instead of pizza on Friday I was thinking of just doing cheesy breadsticks. Same thing as cheese pizza right! Never thought of using provolone cheese... I was going to use mozz :)

  3. I think I could easily survive off of those breadsticks and red wine.

  4. Do you watch The Sandwich King? He made a meatball sandwich dipped in marinara - totally making that next week. :D

    Salty all the way - I can walk by candy, cakes, cookies, etc. - but if there are a bowl of chips - watch out!
