Delicious Homemade Breadsticks: Quick and Easy Recipe

The Joy of Homemade Breadsticks

Let me tell you, I absolutely adore homemade breadsticks. I mean, I really, really love them. And the best part is that you can whip them up in no time using ingredients you probably already have on hand. Sometimes waiting for carbs is simply not an option, am I right?

The Simple Steps to Homemade Breadsticks

Contrary to popular belief, breadsticks do not require yeast. You can achieve soft, buttery breadsticks without the waiting time. Just mix together all the dry ingredients, then slowly add milk until a soft dough forms. If you accidentally add too much milk, simply add a bit more flour to balance it out.

No-Yeast Breadsticks

Once you have the dough, you can get creative with shaping the breadsticks. Cut them, twist them, braid them, or mold them into your desired shape. Once you’re satisfied, pop them into the oven, and in less than 15 minutes, you’ll have a batch of tasty breadsticks. For an extra touch of deliciousness, brush some melted butter on top as soon as they come out of the oven.

Can I Make Cheesy Breadsticks?

Absolutely! The options are endless. Sprinkle some mozzarella or parmesan on top before baking, or go all out and wrap a string cheese stick inside the dough for a cheesy stuffed breadstick. You can also add crumbled parmesan to the dry ingredients or sprinkle it on top, or do both! Unleash your imagination when it comes to adding cheese. With a baking time of only 15 minutes, the cheese will melt perfectly and create a bubbly delight.

How Do These Compare to Pizza Hut Breadsticks?

To achieve that Pizza Hut breadstick effect, mix together 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of garlic salt, 1 tablespoon of onion powder, 1 tablespoon of oregano, and 1/4 cup of olive oil. Brush this mixture over the top of the breadsticks before baking. Keep in mind that this recipe doesn’t use yeast, so the breadsticks won’t be as fluffy as the ones from Pizza Hut, but they will still taste amazing!

Can I Make Cinnamon and Sugar Breadsticks?

Absolutely! For this variation, you’ll need to make a few ingredient swaps. Remove the garlic salt and parsley flakes from the recipe and replace them with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Follow the remaining steps as usual. To take them to the next level, drizzle the baked breadsticks with butter and sprinkle additional cinnamon and sugar on top. The high heat will caramelize the topping, giving them the delicious flavor of a cinnamon roll. You could even make a vanilla glaze for dipping or drizzling.

Can I Use This Recipe for Pizza Crust?

Definitely! Just follow the recipe below to make the dough. Knead it about 10 times and let it sit for approximately 5 minutes. Then, roll it out into a large circle, add your desired pizza toppings, and bake at 450°F for around 10 minutes. No need to pre-bake this crust!

Delicious Homemade Breadsticks: Quick and Easy Recipe


  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C).

In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, kosher salt, garlic salt, and parsley. Stir the dry ingredients together until well combined.

Gradually add the whole milk to the dry ingredients, mixing it in slowly. Stir until a soft dough forms. Use only as much milk as needed to achieve the desired consistency. If the dough becomes too wet, add a little more flour to balance it out.

On a floured surface, gently knead the dough 3 or 4 times. Be careful not to over-knead, as this can result in dense breadsticks.

Roll out the dough into a rectangle shape and cut it into 12 sticks. You can adjust the size and thickness of the breadsticks according to your preference.

Place the melted butter into a large baking dish. Dip each breadstick into the butter, coating them evenly.

Arrange the coated breadsticks in the baking dish, making sure they have space between them to allow for even baking.

Bake the breadsticks in the preheated oven for 14 to 18 minutes or until they turn golden brown.

Once baked, remove the breadsticks from the oven and serve them immediately. They are best enjoyed warm and fresh from the oven.
