Ingredients:

For the Homemade garlic bread sticks:

  • 1 pound (450g) pizza dough (store-bought or homemade)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

For the garlic butter topping:

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
