Herbed Cheese Sticks Recipe

We love the breadsticks at our local pizza joint. Now I can get that same gooey-from-the-oven treat, but I never have to leave the house. —Heather Bates, Athens, Maine

"Amazing! My husband, who is not a big fan of any breadsticks, loved this recipe. We will definitely be making this again. I make my own pizza crust which yeilds 2 pizzas. Instead of making the second pizza, I added the garlic, a small amount of spaghetti seasoning and parmesan to the dough. I worked in the spices then rolled into the pan and topped with cheeses and spice. It worked great, though I did bake it a few minutes longer."

"Really good! I also used the refrigerated pizza dough instead of a pizza mix. Was really cheesy and tasted great with the Pizza Soup recipe from TOH."

"My grandies are all teens and are always hungry when they come to my house. This is one of the easiest snacks to make on a moments notice. I usually have the ingredients on hand. I made it extra easy by using the refrigerated pizza dough instead of the mix."
