Homemade Italian breadsticks & Italian Nachos

I made the yummiest dinner last week and my family loved it!  I got the idea to combine two dishes to make a semi homemade Italian meal.  Kevin and I love the Italian Nachos and the kids always love bread sticks.  I didn't want to go to the trouble of making homemade so I have a trick for you to make easy bread sticks at home.


Italian Bread sticks:


1 can of pizza dough

garlic salt

grated Parmesan cheese

your favorite marinara sauce


Directions: Remove the dough from packaging but don't unroll it.  Slice it into 6-7 circles.  Unroll them and twist them.  Lay them on a greased baking sheet.  Sprinkle them generously with garlic salt and parmesan cheese.  Bake for 9-10 minutes or until golden brown.

My kids loved the seasoning so I could have easily done double the amount of seasoning on top.  You could brush them with melted butter.  I didn't because my kids don't love melty messy butter on things.  We dipped them in marinara.

 Think nachos + pizza and you get Italian Nachos!


Italian Nachos:

chopped turkey pepperoni

turkey sausage crumbles - we love the Jimmy Dean fully cooked turkey sausage crumbles.

shredded mozzarella cheese

sliced black olives

pepperoncini peppers

tortilla chips

your favorite marinara


Line your baking pan with tortilla chips.  Sprinkle on half of the cheese, meat and olives.  Then do the rest of the cheese.  Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.  Then add on the pepperoncinins while it cools.  Serve with your favorite marinara.  They're so good!

These would be perfect for game day gatherings or a yummy dinner at home!

Would your crew enjoy the bread sticks or the nachos?
