What’s in Our Cheesy Breadsticks?

If you’re wondering what else to make with pizza dough, then this recipe is perfect for you. You can easily find pre-made pizza dough in supermarkets and it will save you time and energy from making the dough from scratch. But if you’ve got the time, you can make a no-knead pizza dough to make these cheesy breadsticks.

Toppers Pizza’s Original Topperstix has simple toppings, including their pizza sauce, garlic, and different kinds of cheeses. Since cheese is at the heart of this mouthwatering appetizer, we went all out by using three types of cheese for the toppings – mozzarella, cheddar, and Monterey Jack. Of course, you can always customize it by adding your own favorite cheeses. Find out what other types you can try by checking out our CAQ section down below!

Tip: Freshly grated cheeses work best with this recipe because they easily blend together.

Lastly, feel free to experiment and have fun with the toppings of your homemade breadsticks. Throw in some pepperoni to make cheesy pepperoni pizza sticks or some fresh basil for a Margherita flavor.

What to Pair With Cheesy Breadsticks

Breadsticks are an amazing appetizer to serve especially with soup, pasta, salads, and pizza. For delicious pairing suggestions, we recommend making this taco spaghetti recipe or this chicken salad recipe inspired by Cracker Barrel’s.

Although cheesy breadsticks are already addictive on their own, they’re even more delicious when dipped in savory or creamy sauces. Try dipping it in velvety marinara sauce or cheesy bacon ranch dip with real bacon bits for mouthwatering combinations.
