Breadstick Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
This is a really quick breadstick recipe that rivals those served at a famous "hut" of pizza. Soft and fluffy, with a deliciously seasoned cheesy topping. They come together, start to finish, in less than an hour an a half, and that includes about 45 minutes of rising time. Easy-peasy!
Recipe type: Breads
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 8-10
In your stand-mixer or bread machine, mix together:
  • 1⅓ c. warm water
  • 2 T. soft butter
  • 4 c. of flour
  • 2 T. sugar
  • 2 t. salt
  • 1 t. Greek Seasonings or your favorite herb blend
  • 2½ t. yeast
  • ¼ c. ground flax seed (optional)
  • ⅓ c. Parmesan cheese
  • 1 T. kosher salt – it’s the fluffy kind. (If you don’t have that, substitute 1 t. regular salt)
  • 2 t. Greek Salad Dressing seasoning mix or use optional seasoning mix below if you don’t have the Greek Seasoning
Seasoning Mix:
  • ⅓ cup of Parmesan cheese
  • 1 t ground black pepper
  • 1 t oregano
  • 1 t garlic powder Blend and mash the seasonings, cheese, and fluffy salt with a fork. Shake/sprinkle this mix onto your breadsticks before baking.
  1. Mix ingredients in bread machine or by hand and knead until dough is smooth.
  2. Butter a parchment lined cookie sheet, and set aside.
  3. Roll the dough into a rectangle about the size of a cookie sheet.
  4. Transfer it to the pan and stretch to fill your pan.
  5. Spread butter over the top.
  6. Blend the ingredients for the seasoned topping with a fork and sprinkle liberally over the dough.
  7. Cut the breadsticks to size: cut rectangle in half lengthwise and widthwise, then cut each quarter into 6 pieces.
  8. Cover, and let rise for 45 minutes or until doubled in size.
  9. Preheat your oven to 400° F during the last 5 minutes of rising time.
  10. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown.
  11. You can add more butter and seasonings at the end if desired. Butter with fresh chopped garlic is amazing.
  12. Serve with marinara dipping sauce.
Variation: Cheesy Breadsticks- after baking, add more seasonings and mozzarella cheese. Put under the broiler until the cheese is melted and a little bit brown.
These are my most awesomely naughty recipes!
