Tips & Tricks

  • Add enough flour so that your dough becomes tacky. It shouldn’t be sticky, just tacky. It has to be easy enough to be used. Add more flour gradually while kneading if required.
  • You can use a stand mixer to knead the dough or you can knead with your hands. Just make sure that your dough is formed into a tacky and smooth ball.
  • If you don’t want 2 pans of breadsticks, then you can also make a pizza with the remaining dough you have. Roll this dough on a pizza pan. Add the toppings you want on top and bake for 10-15 minutes. But remember to bake the pizza in the oven’s lower rack.
