These easy made from scratch garlic breadsticks require no yeast, no resting time, brushed with garlic butter and baked to perfection. They are family hit!
Whenever we go out for or order pizza delivery we like to order a side of breadsticks too. Because I mean, you can’t go wrong with more carbs, am I right?!
After ordering or going out to pizza nearly every Saturday for years now, we have become what you might call “breadstick connoisseurs”. We order them at every pizza place that we go to. Then we talk about which ones we like and which ones we don’t. And while the verdict is still out on which place has the best breadsticks we have determined that the best breadsticks have the following qualities: thin, buttery, chewy, buttery, garlicky oh and did I mention buttery?
And now with this recipe, you can make the perfect garlic breadsticks at home! And the best part about it is that these breadsticks require no yeast, so they don’t have to rise. This means that if you are short on time and yeast, these breadsticks are perfect for you too!
DES’ TIP: Because these breadsticks don’t require yeast, they won’t be fluffy breadsticks that you may be used to. Instead, these are perfectly thin and chewy.
STEP #1: Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, garlic and oregano together in a bowl. Whisk until well combined.
STEP #2: Slowly stir in milk. Stir just until dough comes together.
STEP #3: Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface. 4 times is really all you need.
STEP #4: Roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thick and then cut into 10 strips.
STEP #5: Place breadsticks on a cornmeal dusted baking sheet. Brush them with olive oil and melted butter and bake 10 – 12 minutes.
STEP #6: Melt butter and olive oil in a skillet. Add in garlic and oregano. Cook just until garlic is fragrant and then brush or drizzle over breadsticks.
Store leftovers in an airtight container and they’ll last a couple of days. We’ve been known to eat them cold, but to reheat simply place in aluminum foil and warm in the oven at 350 until warmed through, 5 – 10 minutes.
