Cheesy Breadstick Bones: Week 5 October 2019

Prep Time: 30 mins   Total Time: 30 mins   Serves: 10 breadsticks

Ingredients:   Resource from

1 pound homemade or store-bought pizza dough

6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast for vegans

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)

Homemade or store-bought marinara sauce, for serving


Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Divide the dough into 10 equal balls. Roll each ball into an 8-inch rope slightly larger on the ends. Arrange five breadsticks on each baking sheet, spacing them at least 2 inches apart. Using scissors, cut a 1-inch slit on the ends of each breadstick and gently stretch each of the cut pieces apart to form the ends of the bones.

Brush the breadsticks with the melted butter then sprinkle on the grated Parmesan cheese. Bake the breadsticks for about 15 minutes then remove them from the oven and top them with the mozzarella cheese if you choose. Return the breadsticks to the oven for an additional 5 to 7 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Remove the breadsticks from the oven and serve them warm with marinara sauce for dipping.
