Pizza Hut Breadsticks Recipe

If you saw my 'Pizza Hut Pizza Copy Cat Recipe' post then you know that to go with my delicious pizza, I decided to make some breadsticks.  These are so simple and really delicious.  Mine came out a little thinner than Pizza Hut breadsticks, but I think it's because I used a third of the Pizza dough recipe to make these instead of half the dough.  And I only used a third because the dough recipe makes three pizzas but I only had two cake pans.  So next time, I'll make sure to put the breadsticks in an 8 inch square so they're thicker.  If you follow the dough recipe below, your breadsticks will come out much thicker.  Okay, I'm getting side tracked with all these explanations! Lets move on please. Even though mine didn't quite look the same as Pizza Hut breadsticks, the flavor was almost identical.  

Start out by placing 4 tablespoons of oil into the bottom of a 13x9 pan.  Begin rolling your dough into a 13x9 inch rectangle.  I just rolled out the dough and placed my 13x9 pan on top and measured it that way.  Made it a lot easier.  Place it into the oiled pan.  Cover with a cookie sheet and place in a warm place to rise for about 1 1/2 hours.  

After is rises, take a pizza cutter and score the dough making 10 breadsticks.  You don't want to cut it all the way through.  You're just simply "marking" it to make breaking apart the breadsticks a little easier after they're cooked.  

Spray the dough with some butter flavored cooking spray.  Sprinkle on your breadsticks seasoning.  

Bake at 475 degrees for 10 minutes.  When the edges are brown remove from the oven.  Using a spatula, remove the breadsticks from the pan and break the sticks apart at the scored lines.  Serve warm.

These are so good and VERY similar to Pizza Hut breadsticks.  Enjoy!


Copy Cat Pizza Hut Breadsticks

  • 1/2 batch of Pizza Hut pizza dough recipe {CLICK HERE}
  • Butter flavored non-stick cooking spray
  • 4 tablespoons of oil

Dough Recipe:

  • 1 1/3 cup warm water (105 degrees F)
  • 1/4 cup non-fat dry milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (for dough)
  • 3 ounces vegetable oil (1 ounce per pan)
  • butter flavored cooking spray

Breadstick Seasoning:
  • 2 1/2 Tb. parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 Tb. garlic powder
  • 1/2 Tb. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tb. oregano
  • 1/2 Tb. basil


Add the dough hook to your stand mixer or you can simply use a bowl.
Put yeast, sugar, salt, and dry milk into the bowl. Add water and stir to mix well. Allow to sit for two minutes or until the mixture starts to bubble. Add oil and stir again.
Gently add the flour and stir until dough forms. Then knead the dough by hand or with your mixer for 10 minutes.  Your dough should be smooth and not have much elasticity to it when you roll it.  
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and divide dough into two balls. You can refrigerate or freeze the second dough ball for future use.
Pour 4 Tbs of oil into a 9×13 cake pan making sure it is spread out evenly, coating the bottom. 
Roll out the dough into a 9×13 rectangle. Then place the dough into the 9×13 pan. Cover the pan with a cookie sheet and let the dough rise for at least 1 1/2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees.
After the dough has risen, cut the dough into 10 equal breadsticks. You can use pizza cutter to score the breadsticks. This will help the sticks form.  And it will make it easier to break them apart after cooking.
Next, lightly spray the top of the breadsticks with butter flavored non stick cooking spray. Then lightly sprinkle the top of the breadsticks with the breadstick seasoning.
Place the breadsticks in the oven for 10-15 minutes. When the breadsticks brown and the edges get crispy, remove the pan from the oven.
Remove the breadsticks from the pan.  Break the sticks apart at the scored lines.  Serve warm.
