We LOVE this recipe for bread machine breadsticks so much that when my bread machine quit working we went through breadstick withdrawal. I knew we had to have these breadsticks so I tried making them by hand and it worked. They were just as delicious as before and they were actually pretty easy to make. I have been making these regularly without a bread machine and they come out perfect every time.
This dough also makes a delicious pizza crust. Simply top with your favorite pizza toppings after rolling the dough out onto the pan. Don't let the dough rise a second time, just bake the pizza after putting on the toppings. It makes a deliciously sweet breadstick crust.
1 cup warm water
2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
3 TBS brown sugar or sucanat
1/4 cup oil (I use olive oil)
3 cups of bread flour (all purpose works too)
1 tsp. salt
Dissolve the yeast in the water. Add the rest of the ingredients in and mix.
Dump onto a floured surface.
Knead into a smooth dough (five minutes or so).
Put dough in a bowl to rise for about an hour or so. Cover with a towel.
Once the dough has risen, roll the dough onto a 10 x 12 lightly buttered cookie sheet. My cookie sheet is larger than 10 X 12. Just use a large cookie sheet and don't worry too much about the dimensions.
Using a pizza cutter, cut the bread sticks into 24 pieces.
Let rise for about an hour. Cover with a tea towel again while it is rising.
Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes.
When breadsticks come out of the oven, drizzle 4 TBS melted butter on top,
then sprinkle with 1/2 tsp or more garlic salt.
Finally, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve with pizza sauce for dipping.
*You can reheat any leftover bread sticks at 375 degrees F for 5 minutes or so until they are warm. My boys gobble these up, reheated for lunch.
