Easy Cheezy Garlic Bread Sticks

We make pizzas every week for the boys' lunches (Thursday is pizza day at school and they don't like feeling left out). I had some extra dough this week, so I made these bread sticks to go with our pasta dinner. So, I guess this recipe is really only easy if you already have some dough on hand (I just couldn't pass up the rhyming title). I used Isa's recipe from Vegan With a Vengeance, but any pizza dough recipe will suffice since they are all pretty much the same. Try this one, if you like. The nutritional yeast develops a nice flavour after being baked in the oven, giving these sticks a cheesy taste. Perfect for mopping up extra sauce!

- pizza dough
- olive oil
- garlic powder
- nutritional yeast

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
1. Divide dough into equal pieces (I weighed out 100 gram pieces). Roll into sticks about 10" long (or whatever will fit your baking sheet).
2. Place on prepared baking sheet 1" apart, brush with olive oil, then sprinkle with garlic powder and a healthy dose of nutritional yeast.
3. Bake for 12-15 mins, or until nicely golden.

These look really good! I'll have to remember them next time I have some dough on hand. And it's really thoughtful of you to make pizza for your sons so they don't feel left out.

Fresh baked bread is the best! Yum!

I made garlic bread sticks a couple weeks ago with the dough that I was too lazy to make into strombolli. I used melted Earth Balance, garlic powder and the parmesan copycat called 'Vegan Grated Topping' from Galaxy International Foods. The taste reminded me exactly of Pizza Hut breadsticks.

But next time I think I'll add some nutritional yeast, which I generally do to every food dish anyway.

This recipe is perfect for me! I always have huge portions of dough left (since I make personal sized pizzas) so next time these will be made!

Great Idea! I am wondering about doing them twisty style.

You had me at cheezy. Breadsticks certainly do not hurt either.
