Crazy Bread is one of the most popular menu items at Little Caesars, and it's surprisingly easy to make at home. The breadsticks are baked to perfection and then topped with melted butter, garlic and parmesan cheese for a delicious side dish to pizza and salad.
Try making this recipe to take to a friend's pizza and movie night, or to bake and freeze to reheat later. This makes a great frozen bread to reheat for weeknight dinners. Simply bake the crazy bread and let it cool completely to room temperature. Then wrap them in parchment paper, store in a freezer bag, and freeze for up to three months. When ready to eat, simply reheat in a 350 F oven until warmed through. You can add more butter and parmesan if you like.
“This recipe is a really easy-to-follow version of the delicious garlic breadstick that's infamous at Little Caesars. I always like a bread recipe that takes just a few hours to bake, and the spread of garlic butter makes it a real treat.” – Tracy Wilk
3/4 Cup warm waterabout 85 F, shared
1 teaspoon Sugar
1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) dry yeast
2 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Olive oil, more for the bowl
1/4 Cup (2 ounces) unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 Cup grated parmesan cheese
Gather the ingredients.
In the bowl of a food processor. Equipped with dough hook, add 1/2 cup warm water and sugar. Sprinkle the yeast evenly on top and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
Let stand for about 5 minutes until the mixture is fluffy.
Sift the bread flour and salt into the mixture. Add the remaining 1/4 cup of warm water and the olive oil.
Blend on mixer on low speed until combined, scraping the bottom and sides of the bowl to ensure the flour is incorporated, about 2 minutes.
Increase speed to medium and knead until dough is smooth, elastic, and glossy, 8 to 10 minutes.
Lightly oil a clean large bowl with olive oil. Place the batter in the oiled bowl and mix well. Cover with plastic or a kitchen towel.
Let rise in a warm place until dough doubles in volume, about 2 hours.
Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces.
Roll each piece into a cylinder about 20cm long.
Place on the prepared baking sheet.
Cover with a kitchen towel and let the breadsticks rise for about 20 minutes until they get a little bigger.
Meanwhile, place a rack in the center of the oven and heat to 375 F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Bake until breadsticks are golden brown, about 16 minutes.
In a medium bowl, stir together the melted butter and garlic powder until well combined.
Spread the garlic butter over the breadsticks, sprinkle evenly with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
