At our house, we love both bread and pizza. I’ve made all types of pizza including pizza flatbread and pizza tacos. So why not pizza breadsticks?

We made some regular breadsticks in the past, so I used that recipe to start and added the pizza. You can add any other pizza toppings to the breadsticks you may want. Tyler, Ryan, and I like just cheese, so we stuck with that. Justin likes more than that, so I will add some toppings to his before baking.

You can make these as a side dish to go with other Italian meals, or as an appetizer. We ended up making dinner out of them.

    As always a really handy step by step guide. I love the fact that this will be easy to do and something fun to try out one weekend xx

  2. This looks amazing and sounds even better. I would kill for something like this tonight rather than what I’ll most likely be having which is rice and veg.
