Making the dough for cheesy garlic breadsticks

The dough for these breadstick is basic yeasted dough (like the one for pizza) made with a few basic ingredients. In this recipe we use instant yeast, which is easy to use, just stir it with the flour and that's it (no need for proofing the yeast). 

This makes kneading the dough simple and quick (like in our recipes for crispy pesto twists and savoury pizza muffins).

Here is what you'll need for the dough:

  • PLAIN FLOUR
  • INSTANT YEAST
  • SALT
  • SUGAR
  • GARLIC GRANULES
  • OLIVE OIL
  • WATER (lukewarm)

For making the dough, combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and make a well in the middle. Add the olive oil to this, then, slowly pour in the water while stirring with a wooden spoon and incorporating the flour.

Once the dough comes together, tip onto a floured work surface and knead for 4-5 minutes (the dough should be soft and shiny).

Place the dough into a floured or oiled bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel and keep in a warm place until doubled in size (around 40 minutes).

Assembling the breadsticks

Once the dough has risen, form a rough rectangle from it, 40cm long and 20cm wide. Brush with butter then sprinkle with both cheeses. Now, fold in half lengthways and press the edges down slightly.

For cutting the breadsticks, you will need a sharp knife. Using the knife, cut 1.5 cm strips, twist them several times and place onto a baking sheet. You will need 2 baking sheets (10 breadsticks per sheet). The breadsticks are done when they're golden brown and when your kitchen smells like a bakery. They are best enjoyed straight from the oven!
