I am always looking forward to the weekends. Not just because I don’t have to work, but because it’s when I finally get to spend time with my hubby. He and I work opposite shifts, so we don’t get to see much of each other during the week. Sometimes it gets rough. Taking care of 3 kids by myself can get pretty hectic. But we make it work. I also look forward to us going out to eat on the weekends too. It’s my little ‘break’ from cooking. Last Saturday we went to the Pizza Factory for lunch. They have these AMAZING bread twists there. Anyone from Southern Utah knows exactly what Im talkin about! They are heavenly!
I found this recipe on Creations By Kara. I adapted it slightly and thought it would be good to add some grated parmesan cheese to sprinkle over them. She claims they taste just like the ‘real thing’! Let me tell you, they were AWESOME! I would not go as far as saying they taste exactly like Pizza Factorys, because those things are just out of this world good! But these ones are darn close! I think the garlic butter glaze you brush on top is really what makes them! Dip them in marinara… ranch….. Alfredo… Mmmmmm You’ll be in heaven my friends!
Makes 10-12 bread twists

When we visit Cedar city we have to eat at the Pizza Factory! I cant wait to make these = )
Those look so great. You did a great job with them.
I have no idea what pizza factory is BUT I am soooooo wanting these right now 🙂
I just want to eat these now! What a great idea with the skewers as well.
These breadsticks are a family favorite, been making them for years!
I have never been to the pizza factory but I don’t care – I want these anyway! Such a good idea with the skewers!!
oh sweet deliciousness! This is actually the only part about pizza factory I like. I know, everyone around here would gasp taht I said that! Estes pizza is just soo much better 😉
Cariann- I’m not gasping.. I honestly dont think their pizza is all that great either.. but I do LOVE their bread twists! Ive never heard of Estes Pizza before..
I only have one kid but feel your pain, my hubby works shift work and we are passing ships! This looks so nice
PF bread twists are THE best! These look just like theirs! Mmmmm I can taste one now!
I’ve never been to Pizza Factory, but these twists look wonderful! Homemade bread is a weakness of mine. 🙂
These look great. I like your bit about Pizza Factory breadsticks — I’ve been meaning to try making a garlic breadstick to mimmick our own local wunder-breadstick in Southern Illinois (found at a restaurant known as “Western Sizzlin.”) It never occurred to me that they might use skewers or something to twist the bread. I just figured I’d twist it free-hand, but now I’m thinking I might want to have these on hand in case I get in there and realize I have no idea what I’m doing. Thanks for the great idea!
