Pizza Factory Twisted Breadsticks

When I lived in Utah, I frequently visited The Pizza Factory so I could devour their delicious twisted breadsticks. There’s something so appealing about eating a breadstick that’s actually wrapped around a stick! Using Rhode‘s Dinner Rolls, I decided to make my own version of these delicious breadsticks. Following these simple directions, you’ll enjoy these tasty twisted breadsticks in a matter of minutes.

I received compensation in exchange for this post. Regardless, all opinions are my own. 

Pizza Factory Twisted Breadsticks

Twisted breadsticks recipe


  • Rhodes Dinner Rolls (use 2 for each breadstick)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter (for 3 breadsticks)
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Garlic Powder
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Cinnamon Sugar
  • Wooden Dowels (you can also use skewers)


1. Thaw desired amount of Rhodes Dinner Rolls. You’ll need 2 rolls for each breadstick. Because I made 3 breadsticks, I used 6 Rhodes Dinner Rolls.


2. After dough is thawed, combine 2 Rhodes Rolls into a “snake” like shape. Do this for each breadstick.


3. Wrap the dough around the dowel. Make sure to leave a little space on both ends of the dowel. To help secure the dough, wet the dowel where the dough starts and stops.

4. Place the skewers horizontally on a cookie sheet. Let the dough rise until it has doubled in size. (Make sure to cover dough so it doesn’t dry out)


5. Melt your butter and brush over breadsticks. Save a little butter for after the breadsticks come out of the oven.

6. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes (until breadsticks are golden brown).


7. After breadsticks come out of the oven, brush with butter. Top with your favorite seasonings. For my garlic breadsticks, I used Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and garlic salt. For dessert breadsticks, I covered in cinnamon sugar.


Using Rhodes Dinner Rolls adds such a fresh and “homemade” taste to the breadsticks. After tasting these delicious Pizza Factory Twisted Breadsticks, you’ll never make breadsticks any other way. By far the yummiest breadsticks I’ve ever made; they were all gone before dinner even started! Enjoy.
