Helpful Tips to Make Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Breadsticks:

  • Bake on parchment paper, it helps with the gooey cheesy goodness cleanup. 
  • Preheat your oven to warm before you let it rise, it helps speed up the process.
  • Rotate your pan halfway through baking, it helps the dough brown evenly.

What You Will Need to Make Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Breadsticks:

  • Basting Brush
  • Jelly Roll Pans (baking sheets with sides) – used for everything from cookies to roasting, a good baking pan will last for years.
  • Stand mixer is amazing appliance in my kitchen. I highly recommend making the investment.

Donna’s Notes

You can mix the dough by hand if you do not have a stand mixer. Add water, yeast and sugar to a large bowl. Once the yeast blooms stir in the salt and the flour. Mix with a spoon. Turn dough out onto floured counter top and knead for 3-5 minutes until dough is no longer sticky. Proceed with remaining instructions.

    My whole family loved these. They are so delicious, and honestly taste better than the usual pizza place we order from.

  2. 5 stars
    So easy, and a big hit with the kids. I added garlic powder, onion powder, oregano and basil (dried), plus black pepper to the dough. Serve with marinara!
