Garlic Bread Sticks

Every Saturday night is our traditional "pizza night" which typically includes pepperoni for sure but the second and sometimes third choice varies. Once in a while the second or third choice is cheesy bread sticks of some style.

This is one of our favorites - the other favorite uses one of Penzey's spices - but since I'm currently out, I like this version that tastes similar to Pizza Hut because it uses oregano in the spice.

Garlic Bread Sticks

Pizza Dough or Crust
olive oil
real butter
mixture of spices;

3 T grated parmesan cheese
1 T garlic powder
1 T onion powder
1 T oregano
1 1/2 t garlic powder

If you are using homemade pizza dough, spread in an oiled pan and let rise for about 25 minutes. Spread about 1/4 c (1/2 stick) real butter over the dough and drizzle with approximately 1/4 cup olive oil. Make sure to get the edges. Now sprinkle liberally with the dry spice mix. Depending on how heavy you like your spices this mix can make 1 or 2 large pizzas.

Whether or not you choose to cut before baking is up to you. I like to either cut after (for softer bread sticks) or I cut about 3/4 of the way through before baking so there are cut lines of individual sticks when it is finished. Your call! Bake at 375 for approximately 15 minutes or until your bread sticks are golden brown and the crust done. This can be 12 minutes or could be 20 depending on your oven and the pan used.
