|I tend to always have left-over pizza dough |
when making homemade pizzas,
so this is a great accompaniment,
along with left-over pizza sauce...

1/2 recipe of pizza dough (Click here: Pizza Dough - Homemade) -- I use the other 1/2 to make a pizza!
½ teaspoon cornmeal
***For brushing on top
2 tablespoons butter melted
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning herb blend
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon parmesan cheese, grated
--Prepared marinara sauce, for dipping (optional)
Preheat the oven to 425 degree. Line two baking sheets with foil, and spray with cooking oil, and sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of cornmeal onto each sheet.
Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface until it measures a 12”x16” rectangle. Cut the dough into sixteen (16) 1”x12” strips. Gently roll each into a snake, without stretching. Cut each snake in half so you have two 6” strips, and then twist to form twisty breadsticks; pinch and tuck under ends (See photo). Place on baking sheet 1-1/2” apart, and press down ends so they don’t unroll. Repeat until done, placing 8 breadsticks on each baking sheet.
Melt butter in microwave for 30 seconds, and then add the garlic powder, onion power, and italian seasoning, mixing to combine. Brush on breadsticks, and then sprinkle with sesame seeds and parmesan cheese.
Bake each sheet for 7 minutes, and then using tongs turn breadsticks over and continue baking for 7 minutes longer, repeat with other baking sheet of breadsticks – Enjoy just as they are, or dip them in marinara sauce!
