Buttery Breadsticks and Pizza Dough

Cheesy Parmesan Breadsticks from Pizza Dough.....
Homemade Pizza and breadsticks.....a great Monday night quickie dinner! 
I used this recipe to make some pizza tonight at home. I had some leftover Parmesan cheese from making chicken alfredo the other night. It is great on breadsticks too. So I used half of the recipe for a medium sized pizza for the hubs and I, and the other half I made some mini breadsticks that will will go great with some cream of broccoli soup tomorrow. (that's not sayin they will last till tomorrow!) tee hee....
Gather your ingredients, start with WARM water to sprinkle the packet of yeast into.  

These are the things I put on top of my cheesy-garlic Parmesan breadsticks! I keep Parmesan in the freezer in the baggie it comes in. I bring it out when needed and that way it is always fresh. It is GREAT on Italian green salads and also in pasta dishes of any sort! 

I just LOVE these little Skookie cast-iron pans I got for my birthday a few years back from my son Jeff and daughter-in-law Wendy. They are perfect for individual pan pizzas!  WOOT! Here is a link for the pans HERE.

Added the sauce and then topped with cheese.....easy peasy.....

Homemade Pizzas and breadsticks ......make it tonight! 
The Weekday Chef loves breads. It's sadly, my downfall. And Pizza and buttery breadsticks are kind of the devil. (stupid buttery morsels of delight....stupid things....) sounds of sniffing....

Here is the recipe. It is from Jamie Cooks it UP!  love her! 
30 minute Pizza Dough 
1 Cup of Warm Water
1 T sugar
1 T. Yeast (I use active dry yeast)
1 teaspoon salt 
3 T vegetable or canola oil 
2 1/2 to 3 cups of flour 

I just pour a cup of warm water in my mixer and then dump in the yeast and then sugar and leave them to bubble up for 5 minutes while I gathered the pizza ingredients. Then I added the teaspoon salt and 3 Tablespoons of oil. (Olive oil works great too) and added 2 cups of flour slowly and then about 2 3/4 when it was about done. Just add enough so it isn't sticky anymore and pulls away from the pan. 
Roll out the pizza dough onto a pizza stone brushed with oil. 
Breadsticks from Pizza Dough...I let them rise a little before baking.....then I painted melted butter on them with a silicone soft brush and topped them with Parmesan Cheese and Johnny's Garlic Salt Mixture.

 I used a little more than half of the dough on my pizza stone and rolled it out and then let it set while I grated the cheese. Then I used the other half, rolled it out in a short rectangle about 1/3 of an inch thick. Then I cut rectangles, twisted them and layed them in my little mini pizza pans. They rise while the pizza is cooking. 
I add PREGO spaghetti sauce for my pizzas and top with Mozzarella cheese and pineapple bits, bacon, tomato slices and green peppers and purple onion. Sometimes I add mushrooms and olives too if we have them on hand. It's yummyrific!
