How to Make Homemade Cheesy Breadsticks

  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and move the oven rack to the lowest position.
  2. Place a sheet of parchment paper on top of a cutting board or other surface. Place the pizza dough in the center and sprinkle it with a little flour to prevent sticking.
  3. Roll the pizza crust out to a 14- x 10-inch rectangle using a rolling pin. Use your hands to shape the dough into a rectangle if needed.
  4. Drizzle a large rimmed baking sheet with olive oil and spread it around with your hands. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Combine melted butter and minced garlic, then pour it over the dough and spread it out evenly.
  6. Sprinkle the dough with half of the Italian seasoning, salt, shredded mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle the remaining Italian seasoning over the top.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for a minute or two before using a pizza cutter to slice it into 18 strips.
