Get homemade breadsticks on the table fast--without any kneading or mixing--when you start with prepared pizza dough, then top with dried oregano and Asiago cheese. For a crispier texture more like grissini, roll the breadsticks long and thin and bake until golden.

  • Divide dough into 16 equal pieces and roll each into a 12- to 14-inch-long breadstick on a lightly floured surface. Place the breadsticks at least 1/2 inch apart on the baking sheets. Brush with oil and sprinkle with Asiago and oregano, pressing if necessary to help it stick.

  • Bake the breadsticks on the upper and lower racks, switching the pans halfway through, until lightly brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool.

Tips

Tip: Look for balls of prepared whole-wheat pizza dough at your supermarket, fresh or frozen and without any hydrogenated oils.

Tip: If your dough “resists” being rolled out, let it rest 10 to 15 minutes, then try rolling it out again.
