Dominos Cheese Breadsticks Recipe


Dominos Cheese Breadsticks are no-garlic sticks that are better than Domino’s. A side bread that is as tasty as the original Dominos. The sticks are a must-have on your dinner table.

Choose another bread to bake from here like cheesy garlic stickspull-apart rolls, or pull-apart bread.

Who doesn’t love Dominos Cheese Sticks? I believe it is a staple that all of us order as a side with our Pizzas. And now since I have started making pizza at home, it is obvious that I make the cheese bread sticks at home too.

Suhaina of the awesome blog, My Singapore Kitchen, has many eggless bread recipes that are always bang-on hits.

I have earlier made pull-apart rolls from her recipe. And that recipe has been a keeper with lots of people loving it.

So I was quite sure these sticks would work too.

I made them to serve along with Whole Wheat Pizza, which I posted last week. Healthy pizza with little indulgent cheesy sticks. Yummy!

I leave you with some decadent images and loads of cheese-ozing sticks.

Servings: 4 people


for the dough

  • cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp instant yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar granulated
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning
  • ¾ cup water
  • 4 tbsp olive oil

for the topping & filling

  • 100 gram mozzarella grated
  • 1 tbsp salted butter softened
  • 1-2 tbsp italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp black pepper crushed
  • 1 tsp parmesan cheese grated
  • semolina to sprinkle on the work surface


  • Start by bringing all the ingredients to room temperature if they were refrigerated. It's best to keep the refrigerated ingredients on the counter 30 minutes prior to baking.

for the dough

  • In a large mixing bowl, mix ½ cup flour with the water, sugar and yeast and keep aside covered for 1 hour or till the mixture is bubbly.
  • Add the remaining flour and rest of the ingredients to the yeast mixture. Knead to form a smooth and soft dough. You may add flour or water to achieve the smooth consistency. The dough shouldn't be sticky but should be very smooth and malleable.
  • Keep it aside for 30 minutes and place it covered in a greased bowl in the fridge overnight for the flavors to develop (minimum 6 hours).
  • When ready to bake, keep the dough out from the fridge for 1 hour.

assemble the sticks

  • Divide the dough into two. Sprinkle the work surface with semolina.
  • Transfer one portion of the dough onto a floured surface and roll it gently into a disk about ½ inch thick. Apply more flour but sparingly if the dough is sticky.
  • Place half of the mozzarella on one side (semi-circle) and sandwich the mozzarella slice between halves of the circular dough disc.
  • Turn over one half of the disk onto the other to form a semicircle.
  • Place a parchment sheet in the baking tray, transfer the prepared semi circle dough onto the baking tray.
  • Spread half the salted butter over the rolled dough and sprinkle the parmesan cheese, seasoning & crushed pepper over.
  • Using a dough scraper, gently cut the semi-circle into sticks. Do not separate each stick but allow them to rise for 20 minutes in a warm place as semi-circle only.
  • Repeat the same for the remaining dough and cover. Keep aside both doughs for 20 minutes.

bake the sticks

  • While the sticks are proofing, preheat the oven to 350 °F (180 °C).
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the bread is golden brown. Don't allow them to become over brown or they will dry up.
  • Serve warm with garlic spread or mayonnaise or simply have it plain with tea.


  1. Semolina makes the crust crisp.
  2. You can add garlic. Since I do not eat garlic, I have skipped it.
  3. You can even bake on the backside of a baking tray/ or a round pan for easy slipping of bread.
  4. The success of these sticks lies in using a dough scraper and not ripping the dough for anything.
  5. No-garlic sticks will stay fresh for 24 hours in an airtight container at room temperature. Don’t place it in the fridge.
  6. No-garlic sticks freeze well for up to 2 months. To thaw, leave on the counter or overnight in the fridge.
  7. It’s ok to leave the dough to rise at room temperature, however, I highly recommend letting it rise in the refrigerator overnight, as it becomes far easier to work with.
  8. I love to play with the flavor of the sticks. You can keep it simple or adapt the recipe with more filling options.
  9. You can make the same recipe into pull-apart rolls or replace the filling with your choice of ingredients like pistachio, raisins, cinnamon, powdered sugar, etc
  10. An easy and tasty recipe for people who avoid garlic in their food but relish cheese breadsticks.
  11. It makes for an ideal snack recipe for adults and kids alike.
  12. You can replace half of all purpose flour with same quantity of whole wheat flour to give it a healthy twist.
  13. Measure the ingredients correctly. Use standard cups and spoon measures to measure them.
  14. All the ingredients must be at room temperature.
  15. Use best quality ingredients to make this cake.
  16. After adding the flour, do not overmix the batter.
  17. This recipe can be halved, doubled, or tripled. Make sure to use the baking pan accordingly. The baking time will also differ.
