I LOVE bread. Pretty much in any form. And when I have people over, I have to make some sort of bread to go with dinner. These remind me of Pizza Factory breadsticks. They are SO soft and SO delicious! It’s also an awesome recipe because they are fast. There isn’t a lot of rising time. You can also use this dough as a pizza crust. Just use half of the dough for a pizza and the other half for a batch of breadsticks. One batch made 2 full cookie sheets of breadsticks. 

1½ cups warm water
2 T sugar
1 T yeast
3½ cups flour
1 tsp Salt
3 T butter 
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Garlic Salt

Mix warm water, sugar and yeast together.  Let that sit for 5 minutes.  Add flour and salt to the water, sugar, and yeast.  Mix this until smooth and let it raise for 10 minutes.  I used my Kitchenaid mixer with the dough hook.

Roll out the dough in a large square on a floured surface.  Brush the dough with the melted butter and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and garlic salt. Fold the dough in half.  Cut the dough into one inch strips with a pizza cutter. Twist the one inch strips of dough and place on a cookie sheet.  Let that sit for another 10-15 minutes to raise.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.  My oven took about 17 minutes for these to be lightly brown.

Immediately after baking brush with more garlic butter and sprinkle with garlic salt and grated parmesan cheese.  Serve with marinara sauce, alfredo sauce, or ranch.
