Pizza Bread Sticks


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (105°F to 115°F)
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 green onion with top - sliced
  • 1 medium clove garlic - minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


Preheat oven to 400°F.

Spray 2 large nonstick baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

Sprinkle yeast over warm water in small bowl; stir until yeast dissolves. Let stand 5 minutes or until bubbly.

Meanwhile, place all remaining ingredients except oil in food processor; process a few seconds to combine.

With food processor running, gradually add yeast mixture and oil. Process just until mixture forms a ball. (Add an additional 2 tablespoons flour if dough is too sticky.)

Transfer dough to lightly floured surface; knead 1 minute.

Let dough rest 5 minutes.

Roll out dough with lightly floured rolling pin to form 14X8-inch rectangle; cut dough crosswise into 1/2-inch-wide strips.

Twist dough strips; place on prepared baking sheets.

Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until lightly browned.
