Thanks for posting this recipe! For those who think they didn't come out brown enough, I will tell you that when Pizza Hut makes these (I was a General Manager there for several years), prior to these going in the oven they are brushed with liquid butter oil. I'm sure that helps them with the browning process. Also, unless someone orders these and they've just been taken out of the oven, they're reheated in a toaster oven that has a conveyor belt. This would also aid in browning. If you want them browner than they're turning out for you, I would suggest at the end, to turn your oven up higher or even to the broil setting for a minute. That should help. The topping isn't sprinkled on (at Pizza Hut, feel free to follow this recipe as posted, I'm just giving some info) until they come out of the oven and after they've once again been brushed with butter. Hope this helps someone.

These are delicious! I like mine thinner so I adjusted the recipe to 8 servings. Makes a perfect 9x13 cookie sheet of breadsticks. I don't put oregano in them, just on top. I knead them for a couple minutes on a lightly floured surface prior to putting them on the baking sheet. This gives them less fluffiness and makes them a slight bit chewy like I have always liked breadsticks. Run your oregano through a coffee grinder to make it smaller and the flavor to come out. Mix it with grated parmesean and store that mix in the fridge in a shaker. I rub a stick of butter over the top when they come out and then spray with a bit of olive oil. Then shaker on the cheese. The tip of using the broiler for a quick browning is perfect, just watch close. They can go from brown to burnt in 5 seconds. For too salty of topping, just use garlic powder, not garlic salt. Unroasted garlic powder gives a better flavor too!

I am basing my review on the recipe as listed. I give 2 stars as the topping was VERY salty! I made breadsticks a second time with the topping as follows: 1/4 cup olive oil, 2 T parmesan, 1 T garlic salt. Breadsticks were still so salty my kids won't eat them. Next time, my topping will include ONLY 1 tsp garlic salt, 2 T parmesan, 1 T oregano, and 1/4 cup olive oil.

Breadsticks were good, but the topping was waaaaaay too salty!

Oh my these were a hit. My family loved these little beauties, and I will make again when we are enjoying some pizza. My crew dipped these in marinara, ranch or honey mustard sauce. Thanks so much for sharing with us, we loved them.

My dough didn't rise like it should the second time-- I wouldn't necessarily blame the recipe for this. The topping was WAY too salty. I had to scrape it off and just add some more plain parmesan to mask it. I might make this again with some changes-- but first I'm looking for a different recipe.

These were pretty good breadsticks. Made for pizza night with the girls. The bread was good, but, yes lacked that slight crunch that Pizza Hut has as well as the oily/greasiness that they have as well. I made one pan in my cast iron and one just on a baking sheet and there really wasn't much difference. I didn't use oil, just spread on some melted butter and then the topping. Due to reviews, just left out the oregano in the topping and, since I don't have garlic salt, just subbed a lesser amount of regular salt and used garlic powder. I thought they were really good breadsticks with good flavor. Thanks for posting!

I only made the topping. I had some gluten free dough, but it was gross and crumbly, so I cut a GF baguette (Against the Grain, which are delish if anyone cares), brushed melted butter on top, sprinkled the seasoning (I left out the oregano), and baked on a cast iron pan. Awesome subtitute for something I thought I'd never have again. These do taste like Pizza Hut, which means they are salty. Pizza Hut breadsticks ARE salty.
