My daughter’s science teacher gave us a recipe to make for extra credit. I made it twice that weekend. The first time a single recipe the second time we doubled the recipe…and then I gained 2 lbs! They are quite delicious. My daughter sprinkled them with poppy seeds, but kosher salt, sesame seeds, or Parmesan cheese are also great on them.
Mrs. B.’s Bread Sticks/Pizza Dough
Preheat oven to 425F
- 1 pkg. yeast
- 1 cup warm water
- a few tsp. sugar
Mix above ingredients together and wait until mixture becomes bubbly
- add 2 1/3 cups of flour (white, wheat or a mixture)
- 1 tsp salt
- olive oil
Stir the flour and salt in thoroughly until the dough sticks together in a big ball (I rub some olive oil on my hands to prevent the dough from sticking to me) Coat the dough with olive oil, cover with plastic wrap and a towel. Set the dough in the bowl aside in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes.
After the dough rises, form it into either bread sticks or into pizza. Let the dough rise for 10 minutes if you are making pizza, top with toppings and put in oven.
Bake for approx. 20-23 minutes. Bread sticks may need less time. Remove from oven when ready
Coat bread sticks with butter after baking and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired. Dip in tomato sauce.
One recipe is enough for one batch of bread sticks, but I often double or triple the recipe.
