Herbed Cheese Sticks

We love the breadsticks at our local pizza joint. Now I can get that same gooey-from-the-oven treat, but I never have to leave the house. —Heather Bates, Athens, Maine

    while they taste GREAT they look NOTHING like the pic, It is impossible to get the dough into shape or size

    Like other reviewers, I used refrigerated pizza dough (off brand), placed into a 9" x 9" pan (greased) and baked for the time listed on the dough package. Served with marinara sauce...yum! Easy and quick!

    Baked in a 9x9 pan. Easy and disappeared quickly. Will make a double batch next time.

    In my high school cafeteria they called this "Double Cheese Surprise" and it was EVERYONE'S favorite. This recipe reminds me of it so much and is just as good as it ever was. Perfect for an appetizer before the big game, or an easy dinner for the kids. Quick to make, but always a hit. Usually serve with marinara sauce and ranch dipping sauce.

    We made this as one of the selections for our recent appetizer night. Really loved them and will be making them again.

    Amazing! My husband, who is not a big fan of any breadsticks, loved this recipe. We will definitely be making this again. I make my own pizza crust which yeilds 2 pizzas. Instead of making the second pizza, I added the garlic, a small amount of spaghetti seasoning and parmesan to the dough. I worked in the spices then rolled into the pan and topped with cheeses and spice. It worked great, though I did bake it a few minutes longer.
