When my husband and I lived in Provo, UT we LOVED going to the Pizza Factory, we went for the breadsticks mainly, but their food was good too! They make their breadsticks all twisted on tall dowels and serve them in a big vase. So fun! So, when I spotted this recipe over at Six Sisters Stuff, I just couldn't resist! I have made them a couple of times now and my husband has declared them his new favorite! They are super yummy and also super fast, bonus! Here is my take on them...
Pizza Factory Breadsticks
(15-20, depending on how fat you make them)
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 T sugar
1 T yeast
Let that sit for 5 minutes. Then add:
3 1/2 cups flour
1 t salt
To brush on top:
1/2 stick butter (1/4 cup), melted
Mix until smooth and then let rise for 10 minutes. Roll the dough into a large square on a floured surface. Mix together the melted butter and garlic salt and brush half of it onto the dough. Fold the dough in half and cut into 15-20 strips (about 1 inch each). Twist each strip and place on an UNGREASED cookie sheet. Let the twists sit for 15 -20 minutes to rise (I just let them rise while the oven is preheating). Bake the breadsticks at 400 for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. As soon as they come out, brush the tops with the remaining garlic butter.
