Flavorful Ingredients

  • Olive Oil: Integral to the recipe, olive oil is mixed into the dough, used to grease the baking dish, and brushed over the top for a flavorful finish.
  • Seasonings: A combination of Italian seasoning, garlic, and salt brings classic Italian flavors to these breadsticks.
  • Water: Warm water between 110°-115°F (43°-46°C) helps activate the yeast, ensuring the bread rises properly.

Storing and Preservation

  • Room Temperature Storage: Keep leftover breadsticks in an airtight container for up to two days to maintain freshness.
  • Refrigeration: If stored in the fridge, consume within five days to prevent them from drying out. They can be revived in the oven if needed.
  • Freezing: For longer storage, wrap cooled breadsticks in plastic wrap, place them in a freezer-safe bag, label, and freeze for up to a month.

  2. Pour the remaining oil mixture into a 7×11-inch (18×28 cm) baking dish and spread it evenly.

Shape the Breadsticks:

  1. Place the risen dough in the prepared baking dish, stretching it to the edges.
  2. Create dimples in the dough with your fingers.
  3. Use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to cut the dough into 8 breadsticks.

Add Toppings and Bake:

  1. Brush the dough with 1 teaspoon of olive oil.
