Italian Cheese Bread

My SIL had these on her menu plan on week and I had to steal the recipe from her! I love these bread sticks. They are quick, easy and so yummy! We make these once a week to go with Italian dishes or sometimes with our Homemade Pizza!

Bread sticks:
2-1/2 C all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 TBSP quick-rise yeast
1 C warm water
1 TBSP vegetable oil

1/4 C prepared Italian salad dressing
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground oregano
1/4 tsp dried thyme
Dash peper
1 TBSP grated Parmesan cheese (we always use more)
1 C shredded mozzarella cheese

Note: We have run out of thyme and oregano. The bread sticks are still wonderful without those ingredients!

In a bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Combine water and oil; add to flour mixture. Add additional flour if needed to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead for 1-2 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes. Punch the dough down. place on a greased 12" pizza pan and pat into a 12" circle. Brush with salad dressing. Combine the seasonings; sprinkle over top. Sprinkle with cheeses. Bake at 450* for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. From Tracy's Recipes.
