Pizza Love: You know that we all are pizza addicted in my family. And Friday is official pizza night at my place! I myself am a massive fan of pizza night at our house. I just can’t help myself. 😀
If you ask about my family’s favourites things, pizza would surely come on top of the list. It’s just so mouthwatering!
Perfect snack: Not only do we feast way too much on pizzas, but I always end up making garlic cheese bread sticks with the leftover dough and cheese.
Everyone’s favorite: Who doesn’t love cheese and bread? They just go together so well. And what is even better than cheese and bread? A warm bread with garlic and cheese melted on top.
Full of cheesy goodness: This simple recipe I am sharing today is covered with cheese and lots of butter + pizza seasoning and lots of garlic.
Cheesy garlic pizza sticks are nothing fancy but they are just a combination garlic bread + cheese pizza which is cut into sticks. Mmmmmm…..Garlic……cheese……….pizza…..figs + mayo dip – the perfect combination.
Fail-proof pizza dough: I wouldn’t deny that pizzas and pizza sticks taste a lot more better with the homemade dough. And I suggest you to make your own dough if you have got time and patience for that particular day when you are having this pizza craving.
Well, a pizza can be healthier if you put in the effort. Yes, you can learn to make it perfect at home. This way, it’s not only cheaper, it’s healthier too.
So make sure to make your own pizza dough at home whenever you can. And if are going to make your own base then you might like these recipes I have shared earlier for making pizza dough; Regular pizza dough and Whole-wheat pizza dough!
These pizza sticks are the answer to all your ultimate questions:
- Not sure what to do with the leftover pizza dough?
Cheesy Garlic Pizza sticks would take care of it.
- Not in a mood of having full pizza with toppings but still want something cheesy, similar to the pizza?
Don’t worry, I have got you covered.
- Love pizza sticks but don’t know how to make them?
Well, everyone love pizza sticks. And I can teach you how to make them in easy steps.
Quick fix for your cravings: If you are in a hurry or hunger pangs strike, then you sure cannot wait until pizza base is ready, then you can go for a quicker solution and use store-bought pizza base like I did this time.
These yummy, cheesy, garlicky sticks of goodness are made from the readymade basic pizza base. They are the perfect compliment for your dear beer or a glass of Italian red wine. I also made figs mayo sauce to dip them in. The combination of garlic pizza sticks and figs mayo dip is divine.
The classic dip: Sweet and tangy Figs Mayo Dip is just perfect for chips, pretzels, fruits and even veggies. You can simply smear it over crackers, or slather it on a bread slice or simply eat it with a spoon — you will love this indulgence in any form.
Figs lovers delight: What happens when you pair greek yogurt with figs + mayonnaise + garlic? A pure culinary magic happens. These ingredients love each other, and they are the perfect match made in heaven. If you love figs then you must have to make this dip. As much as I love little figs, I also really love these spreads.
Make it on Friday: Well, I’m going to try to convince you that you need to make Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks right now. But I know you cannot do that. That’s why I am sharing this recipe on Thursday so that you can make it on Friday evening. And enjoy your movie night Iike I do! 🙂
I am 100% sure that your tongue will thank you for offering this delight. And your whole family will love them!
Get ready: So turn your pizza crust into delicious and easy peasy Cheesy Garlic Pizza Sticks. Buttery, salty, cheesy, garlicky goodness. 8-10 minutes in a hot oven and these cheesy bubbly bites come out ready to be eaten.The crust is thin and the cheese is gooey, and it’s loaded with thick chunks of garlic. Mmmmm, I can still taste it! 🙂
And that would made your kitchen smell divine. Give them a go this weekend!
Process is simple: This entire process is absolutely simple, because it takes only 10 minutes to prepare. They are so easy, so cheesy, so good.
Advisory words: A word of advice is that you should not make only these bread when you have plenty of guests around you! This pizza would be gone before you could blink and there would never be enough pizza. And people would want to have more and more and you would spend whole of your evening baking in the kitchen! 😉
