Taco Cheesy Twisty BREAD STICKS - 52 Appetizers Recipes

Pin It Now!


This is such an easy recipe and has a wonderful delicious payoff.  Especially since I only seem to make them whenever I am making Pizzas and have extra pizza dough.

Last night I was making pizza.   Just for my wife and myself,  But the recipe for dough I use makes 4 balls of pizza dough (An easy recipe, no rising or kneading.  Kitchenaid easy and ready to use immediately (but best of you let it cold rise in the fridge for a couple of hours)).  You can find the recipe for the bread stick dough by clicking HERE.

Once you have the dough the rest is more technique...

Roll the dough into a square

Spread butter, cheese and spices on the square.

Fold 1/3rd of the dough onto the center third, and 1/3rd from the top onto that new thick center.

Cut into 1 inch "sticks".

Twist and Bake.


Fantastic leftovers and would make interesting dinner rolls.  Feel free to adapt this with different cheese and spice mixes. I had Taco items handy (again, leftovers).

Enjoy indeed!

OK... Here's what I did...

Taco Cheesy Twisty BREAD STICKS

  • 2 Balls (1/2 batch) Cold Rise Pizza Dough
  • 1/2 Cup (Divided, 1/4 Cup per "Ball" of Dough) Butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 tsp (also Divided) Taco Seasoning Mix
  • 1 Cup (also Divided) Shredded Mexican Cheese mix
Cooking Directions
  1. Work in two batches, Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with a Silipat or Parchment Paper
  2. Roll one of the dough balls flat into a 12 X 12 Square.
  3. Spread 1/4 Cup Butter over the entire square.
  4. Sprinkle 1/2 the Cheese and the Spices over the square.
  5. Working from the bottom, Fold 1/3rd of the dough onto the center of the square. Repeat from the top, folding the top 1/3rd onto the center.
  6. Use a knife or pizza cutter to slice 1 inch "Sticks". Pull each stick a bit and twist a couple of times. Place them on the cookie sheet.
  7. Repeat with remaining ball of dough.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the bread begins to get a golden brown and delicious look and the cheese has melted.
  9. Serve Hot from the oven (best) or warm as dinner rolls and ENJOY!
