Save yourself some time and money by making these Pizza Hut Breadsticks at home! They are so easy and unbelievably delicious!
A DELICIOUS COPYCAT BREADSTICK RECIPE
When it comes to breadsticks - I'm obsessed. I really love a lot of restaurant breadsticks but one of my absolute favorites has to be these Pizza Hut Breadsticks. We no longer have a Pizza Hut close to us so I knew I needed to learn how to make them at home (but keep it easy!) With easily available ingredients, these come together quickly and are done in no time. Serve them for your next pizza night, with some of your favorite pasta dishes or just as an appetizer!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
I have found that by doing this, it makes them easier to separate after they are done baking. I do this with my Butter Dip Biscuits. You do not have to do this, you can remove from the baking pan and then cut after they finish baking.
To keep it easy, I use store bought pre-made pizza dough. However, you can also make your own homemade pizza dough as long as it is 16 ounces.
I would not add or switch out any spices for this or it wouldn’t be a copycat recipe anymore. However, if you don’t have Italian seasoning, you can replace it with a mix of dried basil and dried oregano.
I like to use marinara or pizza sauce. Other dipping sauces that would be good would be ranch or garlic butter.
These can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature where they will keep for up to 2 days or up to 5 days in the refrigerator. They can also be frozen. Place in a freezer container and they will keep for up to 3 months. To defrost, remove from the freezer to the countertop or refrigerator overnight, reheat in the microwave or air fryer.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)
- unsalted butter
- pizza dough
- grated parmesan cheese
- garlic powder
- italian seasoning
- onion powder
- kosher salt
- marinara or pizza sauce to serve, optional
HOW TO MAKE PIZZA HUT BREADSTICKS:
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Add 2 tablespoons of the butter to the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish, make sure it evenly coats the bottom.
Add the pizza dough to the dish and stretch it out to fit the pan. If you find it hard to fit the dough to the pan, you can let the dough rest for about 5 minutes and try again. It's easier to spread when it comes to room temperature.
In a small bowl, stir together the parmesan cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
Brush half of the remaining butter on top of the pizza dough.
Sprinkle with half of the seasoning mixture.
Score the dough into 16 sticks.
Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown.
Immediately brush the breadsticks with the remaining butter and sprinkle the remaining seasoning mix on top.
Let cool slightly and serve with marinara or pizza sauce for dipping, optional.
