Pizza Parlor Style Breadsticks

These remind me of the breadsticks from the pizza parlor where we had our soccer parties when I was a kid. They can be made from start to finish in under an hour. They go well with a variety of meals.

Warm water - 1 - 1.5 cups
Yeast - 1 TBS
Sugar - 2 TBS
1/4 tsp salt
3 cups flour
1/2 stick butter, melted
Garlic Powder
Basil, dried
Oregano, dried
Parsley, dried

Preheat oven to 175. Combine water, yeast, and sugar in the bowl of your mixer. Let stand 5 minutes. Combine flour and salt, add 1 cup to yeast mixture, attach dough hook, and mix on low speed. Continue to add flour mixture 1/2 cup at a time. Depending on the day, you may need to add a few drops more water or flour. Once combined, allow machine to knead for 5 minutes. After kneading is finished, allow the dough to sit for 10 minutes.

Line a large baking sheet with foil, pour 1/4 - 1/2 of the butter on the sheet and spread it around. Move the dough to the sheet. Press it out a little. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Spread dough to the edges of the pan, it will spring back a little, but make it go as far as you can. Pour the remaining butter on top and spread it around. Sprinkle with the garlic powder, herbs, and parmesan. I never measure.

Place in 175 degree oven for 10 minutes, they should plumb up nicely. Increase the heat to 350 and bake for another 10 minutes. Scrumptious.
