Pepperoni Breadsticks


Serve these breadsticks with hot marinara sauce or pizza sauce.

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 12 minutes


  • 2 cups biscuit mix
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup chopped pepperoni
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 to 2 tablespoon grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • 1 cup marinara or pizza sauce


Combine biscuit mix, cold water, and chopped pepperoni, mixing until a soft dough forms; beat about 20 strokes. Turn dough onto a biscuit mix-coated surface; gently roll in the biscuit mix to coat. Knead 5 times. Do not overwork the dough.

Roll dough into a 10-inch square; cut in half. Cut each half crosswise into 12 to 14 strips (about 3/4-inch wide pieces). Twist ends of strips in opposite directions. Place breadstick strips on ungreased baking sheet. Press ends down to secure strips to the baking sheet, and brush generously with the melted butter. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan or Romano cheese.

Bake at 425° for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until nicely browned. Serve with hot marinara sauce or pizza sauce for dipping.
Makes about 24 to 28.
