Italian Breadsticks are the perfect finishing touch to any meal. These Olive Garden Copycat Breadsticks are soft and buttery and take less time than you’d think.


  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 pkgs Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 4-5 cups flour

For Garlic Butter:

  • 6 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees F. 
  • Pour warm water in bowl of stand mixer with sugar and yeast. Let sit for 10 minutes until yeast froths. 
  • Add salt, butter, and 2 cups flour. Mix on low until combined. Add the rest of the flour 1/2 cup at a time until the dough pulls away from the side of the bowl. (I used just under 4 cups of flour.)
  • Knead dough in stand mixer on low-medium speed about 5 minutes until dough is soft and easy to work with.
  • Roll dough into long log then cut into 12-14 equal pieces. Take each piece and roll into a 6-inch long snake. Place breadstick dough on two grease cookie sheets, leaving about 2 inches between each.
  • Place both cookie sheets in 170 degree oven for 20-30 minutes until doubled in size. Remove pans from oven and increase temperature to 400 degrees F. 
  • Once oven is heated to 400 degrees, brush breadsticks with melted butter and sprinkle with sea salt then bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until golden brown. 
  • Remove from oven and brush garlic butter (melted butter + garlic powder) on breadsticks.
