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:

Do I have to score the dough before baking?

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.

What pizza dough should I use?

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.

Can I use any other seasonings?

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.

What dipping sauces can I use?

I like to use marinara or pizza sauce. Other dipping sauces that would be good would be ranch or garlic butter.

How do I store leftovers?

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.

  • unsalted butter
  • pizza dough
  • grated parmesan cheese
  • garlic powder
  • italian seasoning
  • onion powder
  • kosher salt
  • pepper
  • marinara or pizza sauce to serve, optional
Ingredients needed: unsalted butter, pizza dough, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, onion powder, kosher salt, pepper and Marinara or pizza sauce.

HOW TO MAKE PIZZA HUT BREADSTICKS:

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Add 2 tablespoons of the butter to the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish, make sure it evenly coats the bottom.

Melted butter added to bottom of baking dish.

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.

Pizza dough spread over butter in baking dish.

In a small bowl, stir together the parmesan cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, onion powder, salt, and pepper.

    AMAZING!!! I just made it two days in a row. My entire family loves it!!! Tastes just like Pizza Hut. My family seems to think there’s a tad too much seasoning but I for sure think it’s the right amount. I did alter the Italian seasoning size down by half but that’s just preference since I don’t like it that much. 10/10 will continue making this forever ✨✨
