Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks


  • 1 pound pizza dough (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (or a blend of melting cheeses)
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, minced garlic, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt. Spread this mixture evenly over the dough.
  4. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheese over the buttered dough.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and the edges are golden brown.
  6. Allow the breadsticks to cool slightly, then use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to cut them into sticks.
  7. Garnish with chopped parsley before serving, if desired.

Tips and Variations:

  • For a milder version, omit the garlic and use only butter and cheese.
  • Layer provolone or gouda cheese between the dough and mozzarella for extra cheesiness.
  • Add chili flakes for a spicy kick before baking.
  • Use gluten-free dough or vegan cheese for dietary restrictions.
  • Substitute minced garlic with garlic powder or jarred minced garlic for convenience.
