Cheesy Garlic Pizza Breadsticks

These breadsticks are amazing. They were super easy to make and a great addition to our pasta on the night that I made them.  They would also be fun to make on pizza night!  They were far more delicious than anything you could get at a pizza place.  This recipe is from Baked by Rachel.

1 cup water
2 1/4 tsp dry active yeast
1tsp sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp unsalted butter
3 cloves garlic (minced)
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella

Dissolve the yeast and sugar in warm water.  Give the yeast 6 to 8 minutes to proof.  In a stand mixer combine the flour, salt and garlic powder.  Turn the mixer on low and slowly pour in the yeast mixture. Once the water has been added turn up the speed.  Keep mixing until the dough begins to pull away from the sides.  Move the dough to a lightly greased bowl, cover and allow it to rise for roughly 1 hour. Once the dough has risen, heat the oven to 425 and lightly grease a sheet pan.  Roll the dough to desired thickness.  Melt the butter in a small dish and stir in the garlic.  Brush the dough with the butter mixture. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese then top with mozzarella cheese. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the breadsticks are done.  Remove from oven and allow them to cool for 5 minutes before cutting.
