  • Stand Mixer
  • Large Baking Sheet
  • Pizza Cutter


  • cups warm water ( I just used warm tap water )
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon yeast
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups flour
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¾ cup freshly shredded parmesan cheese
  • garlic powder to taste optional seasoning topping
  • dried oregano to taste optional seasoning topping
  • dried thyme to taste optional seasoning topping


  • In the bottom of your mixer (I used a KitchenAid mixer), mix together water, sugar, and yeast using your dough hook attachment. Let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • Add in the salt and flour and mix until it's all incorporated. Mix on high speed for 5 minutes, then let dough sit and rest for 5 more minutes.
  • Melt the butter and pour half into the bottom of a large baking sheet (I used a cookie sheet that was 17"x 10"x 1"). Spread the butter around the entire pan using a spatula.
  • Place the bread dough in the center of the pan and let it sit for a few minutes.
  • Spread the dough out (I just used my hands) to the edges of the pan. Pour the rest of the melted butter on top of the breadsticks and spread evenly using a spatula.
  • Sprinkle your favorite seasonings on top. For this, anything goes - I use a combination of my favorite seasonings that I have in my pantry (garlic powder, oregano, thyme).
  • Sprinkle your seasonings all over the butter, then top with some fresh shredded Parmesan.
  • Using a pizza cutter, cut your dough into small breadsticks (doing this before they cook makes it so easy to cut up after they cook). I did rows of 3 x 12 and got 36 breadsticks. You can make these as long or short as you want.
  • Stick these breadsticks in a preheated oven at 170 degrees and cook for about 8 minutes (they should rise about an inch during this time). Turn up your oven to 350 degrees (while your breadsticks are still in there - they will continue to bake while the oven preheats) and bake breadsticks for 12-15 more minutes or until they start to turn golden.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes, then follow the indentations using a pizza cutter to cut the breadsticks.



  • To get the right temperature of water, let your tap water run all the way on the hot side for about a minute. If the water is too cold, your dough won’t rise.
  • Sometimes it’s hard to use a pizza cutter on the breadsticks that are touching the edge of the pan. If that’s the case for you, feel free to use some kitchen scissors to cut where the pizza cutter can’t reach.
  • Fresh shredded Parmesan cheese is my favorite, but you could also use the grated Parmesan cheese that comes in a container.
  • Feel free to use fresh herbs to sprinkle on top – they taste delicious!
