I made this pizza last night. We were having company, and I was a little worried one pizza wouldn't feed us all, so I decided to make breadsticks as well. I just used the pizza dough recipe, rolled the dough, cut it into strips, sprinkled garlic salt and vegan parmesan on top, and baked them at 500 for 10 minutes. They were great. We dipped them in both the roasted garlic sauce and a store-bought marinara.

I've made this a few times now; we love them! I actually don't add quite as much flour to the pizza dough recipe, and they turn out much lighter and better. I also cook them for less time than the pizza. I'm not sure the exact amounts I use, but try this:

1 3/4 c. whole wheat flour
1 T. honey
1 T. yeast
1/2 t. salt
2 T. applesauce
1 c. comfortably hot water

1/4 to 1/2 c. whole wheat flour

• Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

• Mix first group of ingredients.

• Cover and let sit for 10 minutes.

• Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup flour. Dough should be pretty sticky and barely workable.

• Spray hands with Pam, if necessary, and knead dough and roll onto a sprayed cookie sheet.

• Sprinkle top with garlic salt, nutritional yeast, and/or vegan parmesan.

• Use pizza cutter to cut dough into strips. Let stand for 5-10 minutes.

Bake at 500 for 7-8 minutes.

Did you use real parmesan? I thought the recipes were dairy free? Do they carry vegan parmesan cheese at the health food store? Thanks!
