Quick Rise Cheesy Breadsticks

I love pizza and cheesy breadsticks, especially the deep dish kind, and Pizza Hut is kind of a guilty, every-once-in-a-while pleasure.  So I was excited to find this recipe online.  I altered it a bit to make these breadsticks:

What you need:

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 pkg (2 1/4 tsp) yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup melted butter (divided)
  • 12 oz package of mozzarella cheese
  • Garlic powder, Parmesan cheese, salt & pepper (to taste)
What to do:
  1. Combine water, yeast, and sugar.  Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Add salt and milk, plus 1 cup of flour.  Whisk until mixed thoroughly.  Add enough flour to make a thick dough
  3. Knead the dough until smooth.
  4. Roll the dough into the size and shape of your baking pan (I used a rimmed cookie sheet, about 13×9).
  5. Pour 1/4 cup butter in the bottom of the pan, placing the dough on top. Let rise for 15 minutes
  6. Spread remaining butter on the top of the dough (I add about 1/2 tsp garlic salt and/or Italian seasoning to mine), and add cheese.  Sprinkle with any additional seasonings.
  7. Bake at 350°F for 20-25 or until golden brown.

Enjoy :)

    Mine have just come out of the oven!! They look and smell delicious! We’re having them with our homemade Pizza for dinner. Thank you for the recipe.

  15. 1/4 cup of melted butter seemed like a lot to put under the breadsticks. When they were baking (I put them in a 13 x 9 cookie sheet), lots of butter dripped over the sides and smoked up my kitchen. I would recommend either using less butter, or put the breadsticks in a pan with much higher sides to prevent spillover.
