  1. Dough making

  4. Baking

Don’t have time to make dough from scratch? No problem, just skip Step 3 with store-bought dough.

Once your dough has rested, roll it out to the desired size and shape. If it’s pizza you’re making, go for a circle; for breadsticks, a rectangle works best.

Grease your baking sheet/pizza pan with olive oil and place your dough on it. Let the fun begin – add your favorite toppings, and involve your kids for some extra fun in the kitchen.

Bake these delicious pizza breadsticks to perfection by setting the oven to 400°F (200°C) for approximately 8 minutes. Since preparation may differ, it’s recommended to keep a close eye on the breadsticks – especially when making them for the first time. Indulge in this mouthwatering recipe with ease and confidence.

Topping Your Breadsticks

Get ready for “decorating time” with your breadsticks by preheating your oven to 400 degrees F. Brush the dough with olive oil and sprinkle a single layer of toppings (excluding parmesan cheese) over it. Make sure not to pile on too many toppings to ensure thorough cooking.

Bake your breadsticks for 10 minutes, then add the cheese and continue to check every 5 minutes until golden brown and sizzling. Depending on the toppings, it may take anywhere from 15-25 minutes to achieve perfection. Look for a golden brown color and the sound of sizzling cheese to know when they’re fully cooked.

Tips for Perfect Pizza Breadsticks

  1. Avoid drowning your breadsticks in oil – use just enough oil for brushing. Your cheese will release oil too.
  2. Get experimental with your cheese choices! Sliced or shredded, any cheese (except blue cheese and brie) will work. Add extra for a stronger cheesiness.
  3. Best served warm, these breadsticks make a great snack on their own or paired with a dip of your choice (think Slow Cooker Spinach Artichoke Dip or classic marinara sauce).
  4. Don’t roll your dough too thin or risk dryness. Thinner breadsticks are possible, just keep an eye on them during cooking.
