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.
- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 ounce yeast
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil or 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄4 cup margarine
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 -3 cups mozzarella cheese or 2 -3 cups parmesan cheese or 2 -3 cups other cheese, grated
- Mix yeast into warm water.
- In separate bowl, combine flour and salt.
- Add the oil to the water, and add these liquids to the dry ingredients.
- Knead for 7 or 8 minutes, then let rest for about 10. Keep it under a cloth while resting, in a warm place.
- 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.
- Roll dough out into a rectangle shape.
- Cut into strips of desired length, and brush on garlic sauce.
- 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.
- 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.
- Brush more of the sauce on, lightly, and sprinkle with the grated cheese. Best enjoyed warm. :).
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
Awesome sticks!! Hubby, my son, and I LOVED it! We're even gonna add a lil sugar and use this for our pizza dough. They are Crazy Good!! :D
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.
