Pizza Hut Breadsticks Copycat

Pizza Hut Pan Pizza – (adapted from Minh via C:DKitchen)
Dough:     Makes two batches of 10 breadsticks

 1 1/3 c. Warm water (105 degrees)
1/4 c. Non-fat dry milk
1/2 tsp salt
4 c. flour
1 Tbs sugar
1 package instant dry yeast
2 Tbs vegetable oil

Breadstick Seasoning :
2 Tbs dry parmesan cheese
1 Tbs onion powder

2 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. garlic powder 
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. basil

Sauce :
1 (15oz) can tomato sauce
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp dry oregano
1/2 tsp dry basil
1/2 tsp dry marjoram
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Note: If your like my family and are big dippers, you'll need to doulble the sauce recipe.

Making the sauce :

While the dough is rising, mix the sauce ingredient together in a sauce pan.  Heat with medium heat until the sauce starts to boil, then lower the heat to low.  Let the sauce simmer for 30 minutes before using.

Making the Dough:

Using the dough hook, put yeast, sugar, salt, and dry milk in the bowl of your stand mixer. Add water and stir to mix well. Allow to sit for two minutes or until the mixture starts to bubble. Add oil and stir again. Gently add the flour and stir until dough forms and flour is absorbed. Then knead the dough with the dough hook on speed 4, for 5 mintues.
 Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide dough into two even amount balls.

Pour 2 oz of oil into a 9×13 cake pan making sure it is spread evenly. Roll out the dough into a 9×13 rectangle. Then place the dough into the 9×13 pan.

Turn oven on 350 degrees for 10 seconds just to  warm the oven slightly and turn off (You don't have to do this step in the summer). Put the dough in the oven and let the dough rest and rise for at least 1 1/2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
After the dough has risen, cut the dough into 10 equal breadsticks.  I used a dough scraper to score the breadsticks but a pizza cutter works great too. Then melt 2 Tbs. butter and brush on top of bread and lightly sprinkle the top of the breadsticks with the breadstick seasoning.

Place the breadsticks in the oven for 8-10 minutes.  When the breadsticks brown and the edges get crispy, remove the pan from the oven.



  1. Definitely gonna try this, thanks for sharing...

  2. I have one comment by way of a minor correction. I worked at Pizza Hut for 3 years and all I can add is that the butter/seasoning goes on the breadsticks once they come out of the oven. Other than that, your recipe is spot on! :)
