Crazy Good Garlic Breadsticks

A delicious cross between Olive Garden and Little Caesars! It's just a simple pizza dough recipe, brushed with garlic sauce and topped with cheese. Servings note: the 10-12 breadsticks are for long breadsticks, they could easily be cut in half to make twice as many.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix yeast into warm water.
  2. In separate bowl, combine flour and salt.
  3. Add the oil to the water, and add these liquids to the dry ingredients.
  4. Knead for 7 or 8 minutes, then let rest for about 10. Keep it under a cloth while resting, in a warm place.
  5. While it's resting you can make the garlic sauce. Melt the margarine, and mix in the rest of the ingredients. Put to the side.
  6. Roll dough out into a rectangle shape.
  7. Cut into strips of desired length, and brush on garlic sauce.
  8. Stick into a proof box for about 15 minutes. If you do not have a proof box, try to put the pans of dough in the warmest (not hot!) spot in your kitchen, such as nearby an oven. Or if you live in a hot place like Florida, put them in your car for a bit.
  9. Once they grow a little, throw them into the oven at about 425°. Check on them after 10 minutes and pull them out when they turn a nice golden brown.
  10. Brush more of the sauce on, lightly, and sprinkle with the grated cheese. Best enjoyed warm. :).

Delicious breadsicks!
I did as described, but I turned on itself the strips and placed on the baking tray.
The dough was 3 mm thick and didn't dry out while baking.
They came out perfect; they were a runner!
Thanks a lot for the recipe

I followed the recipe perfectly and mine came out a little too hard for my taste. I was looking forward to being able to pull them apart but they were really hard on the outside.
