Pizza Factory Breadsticks Recipe
When I was in college we would do breadstick runs for these tasty treats! Forget the pizza… just these delicious breadsticks. Bread is one thing I can not live without! So I searched online and found a few different recipes online- I tried the recipe I found from this site http://purplechocolathome.blogspot.com/2011/09/pizza-factory-breadsticks.html. There was a simpler recipe where you use Rhoades dough instead if you want to be a little quicker. Aren’t these at least the prettiest breadsticks?! It’s all about the presentation with these beauties… and they taste pretty good. Pizza Factory is better- but I haven’t had them in forever so maybe my memory is fading. Give them a try!
Pizza Factory Breadsticks
1 T. yeast
2 T. sugar
1 1/2 C. warm water
1 T. oil
1 tsp. salt
3 1/2 C. flour
3/4 C. melted butter – divided
3/8 tsp. granulated garlic
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary leaves
1/4 tsp. Season All
1 T. Parmesan cheese
8 – 1/4 inch wooden dowels
cut into 18 inch lengths (craft store)
or 8 – 12 inch skewers
I tried them both ways and decided
I wanted the long wooden dowels like
Pizza Factory uses, but the skewers worked too.
Mix the yeast, sugar and water and
let sit for a couple of minutes to dissolve
the yeast. Add the oil, salt and flour and
knead by hand or with your mixer with a
dough hook for about 5 minutes.
Cover and let rise until double.
Divide dough into 8 equal parts,
about 4 oz. each if you want to use
a kitchen scale.
Lightly flour your hands and roll
the dough into about an 16-18 inch
long “snake”. Moisten the top of your
dowel or skewer and begin wrapping
the dough around loosely. Moisten a little where
the breadstick will end too. Pinch to secure
the dough at the top and bottom. Leave about
5 inches at the end of the dowel, if you are using
the longer dowels.
Hang over the edge of a 9×13 inch cake
pan with all of the dough inside the pan.
Let them rise until doubled.
Brush with 1/4 C. melted butter.
Heat oven to 375. Bake at 375 for
about 15- 20 minutes or until just golden.
Meanwhile mix the remaining 1/2 C. melted butter,
seasonings and parmesan cheese.
When the breadsticks come out of the
oven, brush them with the seasoned melted
butter mixture. Best served hot and fresh.
