How to make cheese stuffed breadsticks?

First, start by preheating your oven to 425°F, and placing parchment paper on your sheet pan. Use our photos as a reference.

Honestly, if you don’t have any paper, non-stick cooking spray works just fine.

Next, open the pizza dough and unroll the raw pastry. Use your knife to cut the dough into six (6) equal sized pieces.

Then, unwrap six mozzarella sticks. Place one cheese stick in the middle of each piece of pizza dough.

Now, carefully wrap the dough around the cheese stick. Be sure to pinch around the seam to seal the breadstick.

Otherwise, the breadstick will burst open during the baking process and all that melted cheese will ooze out of the snack.

Once all the breadsticks are filled and sealed, place them on the baking sheet. Be sure to leave about two inches of space between each one. That gives the appetizers room to grow as they bake.

At this point, you can melt the butter (in your microwave) and combine it with the garlic powder, Italian seasonings, and salt.

Afterward, drizzle the butter (or use a pastry brush) over the breadsticks and sprinkle them with the mozzarella cheese.

Last, place them into the oven to bake for twelve to fourteen minutes or until they’re done. Remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving them with marinara or ranch.

That’s it, your cheese stuffed breadsticks are done! Kim and I hope you enjoy the recipe and wish you all the best 🙂
