How to Make Breadsticks from Pizza Dough

When making these tasty breadsticks, I love to keep it extra simple by using a pre-made roll of pizza dough.

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F or the temperature on the pizza dough package directions.
  2. Roll out the pizza dough onto a greased pizza pan and brush the top with melted butter and sprinkle with a little garlic powder.
  3. Top with your choice of shredded cheese and then a ¼ cup of parmesan cheese.
  4. Bake until golden brown and the cheese is melted.

You will want to let these cheesy breadsticks cool for about 3 minutes before cutting it intro strip or squares. It really IS that easy to make homemade breadsticks from pizza dough! So easy you’ll want to whip up a batch of these over and over again.

How to Reheat Breadsticks

Leftover breadsticks, if there are any, make for a delicious snack. Especially when dipped in a simple marinara sauce or an extra tasty bacon cheeseburger dip! We found these two methods work best for a quick and easy reheat!

  • Toaster Oven: The best way to reheat pizza dough breadsticks is to put them in a toaster oven, which keeps them crispy on the outside and still chewy on the inside.
  • Microwave: You can put them in the microwave along with a small bowl of hot water to create a steam effect, which is another way to get them hot and chewy!

How to Serve Cheesy Breadsticks from Pizza Dough

There are dozens and dozens of ways to serve cheesy breadsticks!  We love serving them with a huge helping of crock pot spaghetti and meatballs or an Italian sausage pasta. They are perfectly dippable in any kind of soup or stew! Try a little ranch dressing and maybe a side salad for a quick lunch or late-night snack!
