For the Breadsticks:

  • 1 pound pizza dough (store-bought or homemade)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped (for garnish)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

For the Cheesy Topping:

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


1. Preheat Your Oven

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.

2. Roll Out the Dough

  • On a floured surface, roll out the pizza dough into a rectangular shape, approximately 12×18 inches.

3. Prepare the Garlic Butter

  • In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and minced garlic. Mix well.

4. Brush with Garlic Butter

  • Brush the entire surface of the rolled-out dough with the garlic butter mixture, ensuring it’s evenly distributed.

5. Add Parmesan Cheese

  • Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese evenly over the garlic butter-coated dough.

6. Add Mozzarella Cheese

  • Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over the Parmesan cheese. Make sure to cover the entire surface.

7. Roll and Cut

  • Starting from one of the longer sides of the rectangle, carefully roll the dough into a log. Once rolled, pinch the seam to seal it.
  • Using a sharp knife or a piece of dental floss, slice the log into approximately 12 equal-sized pieces.

8. Arrange on Baking Sheet

  • Place each breadstick onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving a bit of space between them to allow for rising.

9. Bake

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the breadsticks are golden brown and the cheese is bubbling.

10. Garnish and Serve

  • Remove the breadsticks from the oven and immediately sprinkle them with finely chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and flavor.

11. Serve Warm

  • Serve your Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks while they’re still warm. They’re delicious on their own or with a side of marinara sauce for dipping.

Cook’s Tips:

  • Feel free to customize your breadsticks by adding toppings like sliced black olives, diced tomatoes, or cooked and crumbled bacon before rolling them up.
  • For an extra kick of flavor, you can sprinkle some crushed red pepper flakes over the cheese before rolling the dough.
