In this article, we’ll explore everything you need to know about making and enjoying cheesy garlic breadsticks, from the ingredients and preparation to serving suggestions and more.



For the Breadsticks:

Ingredient Quantity
Pizza dough or breadstick dough (homemade or store-bought) As needed
Unsalted butter 1/2 cup
Fresh garlic, minced 3 cloves
Italian seasoning (optional) 1 teaspoon
Salt Pinch

For the Cheese Topping:

Ingredient Quantity
Mozzarella cheese, shredded 1 cup
Parmesan cheese, grated 1/4 cup
Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish) As needed


  1. Prepare the Dough: Roll out the pizza dough or breadstick dough into a rectangle or desired shape on a lightly floured surface. Preheat your oven to the temperature specified on the dough package or recipe.
  2. Make the Garlic Butter: In a small saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and Italian seasoning, if using, and sauté for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Assemble the Breadsticks: Brush the garlic butter evenly over the rolled-out dough, making sure to cover the entire surface. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt for extra flavor.
  4. Add the Cheese Topping: Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese generously over the garlic butter-coated dough. Then, sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top of the mozzarella for added flavor.
  5. Bake to Perfection: Transfer the prepared breadsticks to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Bake in the preheated oven according to the dough package or recipe instructions until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the edges of the breadsticks are golden brown.
  6. Garnish and Serve: Once baked, remove the breadsticks from the oven and sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley for a pop of color and freshness. Slice the breadsticks into strips and serve warm with marinara sauce or your favorite dipping sauce.
