Ingredients
Dough
  • 2.5 cups bread flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1.5 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1¾ teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons honey
Filling
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2-3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • garlic salt, to sprinkle
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together flour, salt, minced garlic and dried oregano. Set aside.
  3. In a measuring cup, take warm water and add honey to it. Add active dry yeast and give a quick stir.
  4. Let the yeast activate for 5-10 minutes. This is called proofing of the yeast. You will know your yeast is proofed/active when it's all bubbly and frothy on top. If you don't see any bubbling up, your yeast is dead. Throw the water and start again.
  5. To the flour mix, now add olive oil and mix.
  6. Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture and knead using the hook attachment of your stand mixer or your hands for 7-8 minutes.
  7. Knead till the dough looks smooth. Place the dough in a well oiled bowl and set aside for 15 minutes in a warm place.
  8. Divide the dough into 2 equal parts and flatten each dough into a square shape.
  9. Transfer the flattened dough to a baking sheet and brush melted butter on top of each flattened dough square.
  10. Cover half of the dough with grated mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle some garlic salt on top.
  11. Take the other half of the dough and fold it to cover the cheese. Sprinkle grated parmesan cheese on top.
  12. Using your pizza cutter, cut thin strips of the dough.
  13. Bake at 400 F degrees for 14-16 minutes or till lightly golden brown in color.
  14. Enjoy these cheesy garlic bread sticks immediately.
