cheesy breadsticks

these are my favorite breadsticks cause they don't rise for very long. (quick meal is my middle name) it's also my favorite pizza dough, and sometime i will take a picture of my BBQ chicken pizza. so easy! anyways:

Cheesy Breadsticks from parents magazine

3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1 pkg active dry yeast (or 2 1/4 tsp instant yeast)
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup warm water
2 tbsp ollive oil

In a large bowl, mix 1 1/4 cups flour with yeast and salt, add warm water and oil. Beat with a whisk for 3 minutes. (I usually don't make it past 1.5) Using a wooden spoon, stir in another 1 1/4 cups flour, or enough so mixture holds together. Place dough on a lightly floured surface. Knead in 1/4 to 1/2 cup more flour-stop once it's lump free. Cover dough and let it rest for about 10 minutes. Heat oven to 425 degrees. (i usually leave it on the oven while it's heating up)

On a greased baking sheet, press out dough into a rectangle, as thin as you like it. Prick dough with a fork lightly. Bake about 8 minutes. Melt butter and garlic salt together. Brush on top of dough and sprinkle cheese on top. (we like mozzerella and parmesan) Bake another 8 minutes or until browned. Cut into wedges and enjoy!
