Homemade bread has to be one of my favorite things in the whole world. I bake some form of bread at least once a week, and it’s always delicious. As much as I love some of my more complicated recipes that take several hours to make, there’s something to be said for a quick bread recipe, especially one as delicious as these cheesy breadsticks! They’re so quick to make, with just a ten minute rise time, and they taste amazing hot from the oven. They’re always a favorite with my kids, and I make them as an after-school snack often because they’re just so easy!

- 3/4 cup warm water
- 1/2 tablespoon yeast
- 1/2 tablespoon sugar
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
In a medium bowl, whisk together the water, yeast, and sugar. Let sit five minutes, or until bubbly. Add the flour and salt, and mix until a dough forms. Knead gently, adding more flour as needed, to form a soft dough. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 500 with a baking stone or overturned cookie sheet inside. Spread the dough out to form a large circle. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic powder. Sprinkle the mozzarella and parmesan over the top, covering evenly.
Place the dough on the preheated baking stone or cookie sheet, and bake 8-9 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Just look at all that cheesy goodness!
These breadsticks are perfect as a side dish with soup, pizza, or pasta. They’re also a delicious appetizer on their own! We love to serve them with marinara sauce on the side and a sprinkle of fresh parsley on top.
These cheesy breadsticks are the perfect combination of easy to make and delicious!
