Garlic bread, but better. Everything is better fried.



  • 1 (13.8 oz) can refrigerated pizza dough
  • 3 tbsp salted butter
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp parsley, minced
  • 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • oil for frying


  1. Combine the butter, garlic powder, parsley, and Italian seasoning in small bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat an inch or so of oil in a deep skillet until it reaches about 360ºF.
  3. While the oil is heating up, pop and unroll the can of dough onto your work surface.
  4. Use a sharp knife to slice the entire length of dough, right down the middle, leaving you with two long pieces of dough.
  5. Turn the knife around and slice the dough horizontally now, into 1″ logs. Be gentle and try not to stretch the dough.
  6. Once the oil is ready carefully lay your breadsticks over the surface of the oil. Don’t add too many: as always, you never want to crowd the pan when frying.
  7. After 2 minutes or so the breadsticks should be puffed up and turning golden brown on the underside.  Gently flip them over and allow the other side to brown as well.
  8. Transfer the breadsticks to a wire rack over a baking sheet and brush the garlic butter mixture over the top. You can flip them and do the other side as well, if you like.
  9. Keep the cooked breadsticks warm in a 250ºF oven while you cook the rest of the batches. Serve hot!


  • Substitute dried parsley for fresh at an equal ratio.
