  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons 1 package of instant yeast
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups or 22 ounces bread flour plus more for working the dough
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese


  • Place the 1/2 cup of warm water and yeast together in a medium bowl and whisk together briefly. Allow the yeast enough time to bubble up and become active, this should take a few minutes. If the yeast is inactive, you may need to replace the yeast and try again. Add room temperature water and oil to the yeast mixture and stir to combine. Into a food processor bowl pour in flour and salt, pulse to combine. Add yeast, olive oil, and water through the tube of the food processor and process. The dough will form into a ball. Process until the dough is smooth and elastic. The dough will be sticky if you are going to use the dough immediately or within a few days place into a bowl that has been sprayed with non-stick spray, cover dough with plastic wrap. Let rise until the dough has doubled in size, this may take up to 2 hours.
  •  Gently pat out the dough on a floured surface into a rectangular shape. Cut the dough into two equal portions down the middle. Then make about 8 cuts horizontally across the dough. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray. Roll each portion of dough into a breadstick.
  •  Bake in the 375-degree oven for about 18 minutes or until the breadsticks become golden. Remove breadsticks from oven, mix the melted butter and the garlic salt. Brush the garlic sauce over the breadsticks. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the breadsticks.
