Pizza Hut Cheese Sticks

The Pizza Hut Cheese Sticks recipe is fairly complex, but easier than many other bread recipes as you only have to knead once. The restaurant sprinkles their cheese sticks with a special seasoning blend, and then tops them with mozzarella cheese before placing them into the oven to bake. This recipe is very similar to Pizza Hut's bread stick recipe, and the only difference is the mozzarella cheese on top.

Easy Marinara Sauce

A simple dip for Pizza Hut Cheese Sticks


Although Pizza Hut uses mozzarella cheese, there are plenty of other options. Provolone is an alternative if you want to stick with the Italian theme, and cheddar or pepper Jack cheeses are good choices if you don't mind being a little more unconventional. A blend of cheeses will yield a more complex flavor.
