These breadsticks complete any meal and are also great on their own!

Homemade breadsticks are quick and easy to make. With only a few ingredients, you can have these hot, fresh, and ready by the time the rest of your meal is done being prepared and cooked.

You can also bake them as directed and then lightly fry them in a small amount of oil in a pan over the stove. This method will add an old-fashioned styled Pizza Hut breadstick taste to them.

And if you have never made yeast bread before, this is a great recipe to start with. I’ve been making this recipe since I was literally in grade school. I find kneading dough so relaxing, I hope you enjoy making them too!



  • 1 package dry, active yeast (1/4 oz or 2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 1 cup warm water (105-110 degrees F or 40.5-43 C)
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons oil (I typically use olive oil)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Garlic salt
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, can use fresh or packaged


  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water.
  2. Mix in flour, salt, and oil.
  3. Place dough into greased bowl, turn once to coat exposed side, lightly cover.
  4. Set in a warm place and let rise until double in size (about 1 hour).
  5. Punch dough down and knead for about 10 minutes.
  6. Shape into thin, pencil-sized pieces or plaits and place on greased or parchment prepared cookie sheet.
  7. Lightly cover and let rise for another 20 minutes.
  8. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C).
  9. Brush melted butter over breadsticks.
  10. Sprinkle garlic salt and parmesan over top.
  11. Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown.
  12. Brush remaining butter over top and sprinkle a bit more garlic salt.
