Pizza Factory Breadsticks

UN. BE. LIEV. A. BLE. These truly are the most DELICIOUS breadsticks I have ever had--they're even BETTER than Pizza Factory's! And the are SOOOOO easy!! Get ready to change your life: (yields about 25)

{What you need}
4.5 cups hot water
3 tablespoon sugar
1.5 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons SAF instant yeast
10.5-12 cups flour (I find great success with about 11 cups)

1 1/2 cube butter, melted
3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon dill weed
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning.

Combine (in a Bosch mixer or something like it) water, sugar, salt, yeast, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead for 3-4 minutes. On greased countertop, break of pieces of dough ( a little bigger than a golf ball when rolled into a ball) and roll into thin ropes. If you're using skewers like at Pizza Factory, roll the ropes about 1 1/2 times the length of your skewers. Twist the rope around the skewer. I didn't use skewers. Instead I twisted two ropes together and pinched the ends so they stayed. Place on a greased cookie sheet and let rise for about 30 minutes, or until the breadsticks double in size. Repeat till all dough is used.

While they are baking, combine glaze ingredients so the flavors will blend. Bake twists at 375 for about 12 minutes if you're using skewers, and 14 minutes if you are not, and are using the twisting method. Remove from oven and brush with the butter glaze. (Don't glaze before you bake, it's not as good.) I sprinkled fresh parmesan cheese on top, too, and let that melt before I served them. Or you can add add canned parmesan cheese to the glaze, which adds even more flavor. Best if served immediately, but amazing at any time!!!
