I’ve tried multiple recipes on my family and this is the one for the best Cheesy Bread Sticks and for making our pizza crust. It is a copy cat recipe for Pizza Hut’s Cheese Bread Stick’s, but again, I’ve made some modifications! 🙂
Cheesy Bread Sticks & Pizza Crust
Makes 1- 11×15 inch crust or pan of Cheesy Bread Sticks.
- 3 cups flour
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 TBsp yeast
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 cups Mozzarella cheese Shredded
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1 TBsp garlic salt
- 1 TBsp onion powder
- Desired Pizza Toppings and Marinara Sauce
Turn your oven on to the ‘Keep Warm’ setting. For my oven this can be anywhere between 145 to 170 degrees F. I set it at 170.
Grease an 11 by 15 inch baking sheet with 1/2 of the melted butter.
In a mixing bowl and using the dough blade, add all the dry ingredients for the Dough and stir. You can also do this by hand in a mixing bowl if you prefer.
Heat the milk in the microwave until very warm (around 120*F). Slowly add milk to dry ingredients until mixed thoroughly. Dough will be sticky.
Turn onto a clean, well floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Form or roll the dough into a rectangle that fits in your baking pan. Place the dough on the pan, and brush with the remaining melted butter.
For Cheesy Bread:
Sprinkle with garlic salt and onion powder. Now the 3 cups of Mozzarella cheese. And finally the Parmesan cheese.
Spread your favorite pizza marinara sauce over the dough and 2 cups of shredded Mozzarella Cheese. Add your favorite toppings! We like cooked ground hamburger, pepperoni, ham, olives, mushrooms, and yellow peppers. Then add the remaining Mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese.
Put Dough with toppings into warm oven and let rise for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and Preheat oven to 400*F.
Bake for 15 minutes. Or a little more/less depending on how crisp you like your crust.
