The pre-made dough is what makes this so simple to make. You can also use fresh pizza dough, but you might have to adjust the amounts of the other ingredients. I served these easy cheesy breadsticks with our homemade pizza sauce, but you can use jarred if you want. They’d also be great served with marinara sauce, warmed. You can also serve them with warmed cheese sauce. Or both now that I think about it!

For a spicy version, use shredded pepper jack or habanero jack cheese in place of the Italian cheese blend.

I highly recommend that you shred or grate your own cheese at home. Don’t buy the pre-shredded or pre-grated stuff. It has stuff added to it to keep it from sticking together. That ‘stuff’ affects how the cheese melts. Shred it yourself and use the good stuff.

Also try my chipotle garlic cheese bread.
