These classic crispy Italian bread sticks are so simple to make at home!


380g Bread flour
1 teaspoon Instant dry yeast
195ml Warm water
60ml Olive oil
2 tablespoons Unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled
1 1/4 teaspoons Fine salt
Sesame seeds optional


Using a mixer fitted with the dough hook, mix all ingredient on low speed until well combined, 2-3 minutes. Increase mixer speed to medium-low and mix for another 5 minutes. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit for one hour at room temperature.

Preheat oven to 190C. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Divide dough into 24 pieces, each weighing about 25g. Roll each piece into a log that is roughly 25cm long (or 30cm if you like them extra thin) and ½-1 cm wide, depending on how thick you want them. Keep in mind that they will expand during baking. Place on prepared baking sheets, allowing sufficient space between each stick. If you like, brush them with oil or water and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese or sesame seeds.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until light golden and crisp. While the first batch is baking, cover the other baking sheet with plastic wrap until it’s ready to go into the oven.

Allow breadsticks to completely cool on a wire rack. They will keep in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
