Breadsticks are a delicious and versatile snack that can be served on their own or alongside a variety of dips and spreads. In this blog post, we’ll share our favorite breadstick recipe and some tips to help you make the perfect breadsticks every time.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp instant yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 3 tbsp olive oil


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, and yeast.

  2. Add the warm water and olive oil to the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms.

  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface for 5-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.

  4. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover it with a towel. Let it rest for 30-60 minutes, until it doubles in size.

  5. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  6. Divide the dough into 12-16 equal pieces, depending on how thick you want your breadsticks.

  7. Roll each piece of dough into a thin rope, about 8-10 inches long.

  8. Place the breadsticks on the prepared baking sheet, leaving about an inch of space between each one.

  9. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

  10. Remove the breadsticks from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.


  1. Use a good quality flour for the best results. This can make a big difference in the texture and flavor of the breadsticks.

  2. Make sure your water is warm, but not too hot. Water that is too hot can kill the yeast and prevent the dough from rising.

  3. Don’t be afraid to knead the dough for a few minutes. This helps to develop the gluten in the flour and create a better texture.

  4. Letting the dough rest and rise is crucial for creating light and fluffy breadsticks.

  5. Use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut the dough into pieces. This will help create even-sized breadsticks.

  6. Don’t overcrowd the baking sheet, as this can prevent the breadsticks from cooking evenly.

  7. For a more flavorful variation, you can sprinkle herbs or grated cheese on top of the breadsticks before baking.

There you have it, a simple and delicious breadstick recipe that is sure to be a hit. With these tips, you can make the perfect breadsticks every time. Enjoy!
