Garlic Bread Sticks

My family LOVES homemade pizza, but I have recently begun struggling with eating red pasta sauce. My Crohn's disease doesn’t appreciate the acidity of tomato sauce, so I’ve been looking for a way to modify the homemade pizza option and accidentally stumbled across this delicious variety - homemade garlic breadsticks!

When we make pizzas, we use multiple cookie sheets with multiple premade doughs, so instead of spreading tomato sauce on mine, I follow the recipe below! Easy and filling!

Prep Time:

10 minutes

Cook Time:

9-12 minutes

Total Time: 19-22 Minutes

Servings: 5 servings of 4 breadsticks

Ingredients for homemade garlic breadsticks:

  • 1 can Pillsbury pizza crust dough
  • 3 tbs butter melted
  • 2/3 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbs basil (dried or fresh)
  • 2 tbs garlic powder

Directions to make homemade garlic breadsticks

  1. Begin by preheating the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cover a 13x9 baking sheet with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  3. Spread out pizza crust dough.
  4. Brush melted butter over the entire crust dough.
  5. Next, mix the parmesan, basil and garlic powder together in a medium mixing bowl, & spread mixture across dough.
  6. Bake at 425 for 9-12 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.

Optional: Can dip into melted butter or marinara sauce for a yummy bonus!
