Pizza Factory Breadsticks

Being away from Utah and away from Pizza Factory has been a sad sad thing.

Luckily, these are spot on when it comes to those yummy breadstick twists. And for those of you who’ve never partaken of this blessing – you’d better make these ASAP.

… Also this is apparently carb week. Sorry to everyone’s diet in advance.


Pizza Factory Breadsticks

  • Rhodes rolls–2 per breadstick (or make your own homemade bread dough! lots of easy recipes online- third comment down on this site is the one I used)
  • 2-3 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dill weed
  • 18″ bamboo skewers (or some kind of long skinny skewers)
  1. Let dough rise. Then knead two rolls together and roll into a thin rope.
  2. Twist the rope around the skewer and balance them across the width of a cake pan (you can place them on a greased cookie sheet, but they’ll have flat marks on the bottom when they’re done baking).
  3. Let twists rise till doubled.
  4. While they are baking, combine the glaze ingredients so the flavors will blend.
  5. Bake twists at 375 for about 12-15 minutes or till golden brown.
  6. Remove from oven and brush with the butter glaze.

Taste Rating: 9.5/10

These breadsticks are seriously soooooooooooooo yummy and super addicting. I dare you to try to eat just one. Pretty sure it’s impossible. Even my fitness-saint mother couldn’t help herself. I made them when I was home and my family ate the entire batch! And the dill – dill is a weird-ish thing to have (at least for me), but find a friend with some dill that you can borrow and trade them for a finished breadstick. They will be so so so happy. The dill is what makes these so divine.

Ease of Cooking: 8.5/10

Twisting the dough onto the skewer was kind of tricky, but once you’ve done a few, you get into a rhythm and it gets easier. Everything else was cake-sauce easy peasy.

Gah. Now I’m craving these again.

Thanks to recipe exchange!
