Copycat Little Caesars Crazy Bread

Picture of Copycat Little Caesars Crazy Bread
You know you get crazy cravings for certain random foods?  Usually from a place that is either far, far away or no longer open?

Crazy Bread from Little Caesar's (an American pizza chain) is one of my cravings from when I used to live in the States.  Ever since I randomly found a copycat recipe a few weeks ago I've not been able to get them out of my mind.  Soft, slightly chewy and laden with butter, garlic and parmesan...mmmmm....They were so good that my sister and I used to fight about who had the most breadsticks and mum had to intervene (I might add that we had the same fights about who had the biggest Yorkshire pudding...)

Step 1:

To start with, gently stir the yeast into the warm water and left for about 5 minutes.

Step 2:

While the magic happens with the yeast measure out the dry ingredients and put them in a mixing bowl.  Next, add the oil to the yeast mixture and then if mixing my hand slowly add to the dry ingredients.  I used the paddle attachment on my Kitchenaid to bring all of the ingredients together and then once it was doughy I stuck on the dough hook and mixed for another 5 minutes until the dough was all nicely mixed but still a little sticky.  If you're kneading by hand just knead quite well until you get the same result.  You want the dough to be just a little sticky but might need to add a little more flour.

Step 3:

I worked at Little Caesar's for 10 years and the Parmesean that is sprinkled on is a blend of 5lbs of parm to 1 cup of Kosher salt. Before they went to the premix Garlic spread it was 2lbs of butter to 4 oz. of minced garlic for the butter spread. As we all know everything is better with REAL Butter YUM

I actually worked at little Caesars-- you cut the dough before you bake it and you brush the buttery garlic spread after it's done baking and Shake Parmesan cheese on top :)

Thanks for the recipe, I am excited to try it out! There isn't a little Caesars close to me and even though I worked there for almost two years i still love their pizza and breadsticks!!
Haha. Nvm
Am I blind or is there not a list of ingredients :$
