Homemade Garlic Bread Sticks


Easy homemade restaurant (dominos) style garlic bread from scratch ready in simple steps giving you the perfect soft, garlicky bread sticks.


  • 2 1/4 cup + 1 or 2 tbsp all purpose flour (maida)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup room temperature milk or lukewarm (microwaved for 10-15 seconds)
  • 1/4 cup room temperature water
  • 2 tsp sugar (divided: 1 tsp + 1 tsp)
  • 1 tsp active dry yeast
  • 5 1/2 tbsp soft room temperature butter (divided: 1 tbsp + 1/2 tbsp + 2 tbsp + 1 tbsp + 1 tbsp)
  • 1 tbsp garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 tbsp dried oregano
  • pepper


  1. In a small bowl (katori) add water and microwave for 10 seconds and add sugar and active dry yeast. Mix quickly for just 1-2 seconds with a small spoon and let this bowl sit in a warm place (back to the microwave that is switched OFF) for 15 minutes and let the yeast get activated.
  2. In the meanwhile, in a large bowl, add 1 1/2 cup of flour, salt, 1 tbsp of soft butter, remaining sugar and warm milk.
  3. Add the activated yeast mixture to the flour mix. Mix with the help of a wooden spoon until a pasty mixture is formed.
  4. Add the remaining flour gradually until everything comes together. 
  5. Knead the dough very well for at least 6-8 minutes. Add 1/2 tbsp of butter if there is difficulty and knead further until a soft dough is formed.
  6. Brush a little bit of butter on the bottom of a clean mixing bowl and transfer the soft dough in it. Apple some melted butter on top of the dough.
  7. Cover with cling wrap and keep it in a warm place for 1 hour until the dough has doubled (we let the dough rise in switched off microwave)
  8. In the meanwhile, keep the garlic butter ready by mixing 2 tbsp of soft butter, garlic, oregano and pepper. Mix well and keep aside to be used later.
  9. After 1 hour the dough would have risen.
  10. Punch the dough down to knock out the air.
  11. Divide the dough into two balls. 
  12. With the help of a rolling pin, spread out the dough into a large circle of diameter 10 inches. 
  13. Spread the garlic butter and fold the dough overlapping and forming a semi circle.
  14. Press the edges so that the bread loaf is fully sealed. 
  15. Transfer carefully to a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  16. Repeat the same with the other dough ball.
  17. With the help of a sharp knife, lightly shape the sticks without cutting entirely till the bottom and only making insertions on the top layer of the semi circle.
  18. Cover the baking sheet with a large kitchen cloth and transfer to a warm place (switched of oven) and let rise for at least 1 1/2 hours.
  19. Take the tray out of the oven in the last 15 minutes and pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees for 15 minutes. 
  20. Brush 1 tbsp melted butter on the garlic breads and transfer to oven and bake for 30-35 minutes until the breads are light golden brown and puffed up. (see note 1)
  21. Immediately after taking them out, brush with remaining 1 tbsp of butter (generously) so that the bread gets soft.
  22. Cut into bread sticks and enjoy.


  1. We used a total of 2 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp flour.
  2. It is very important to brush butter on baked bread immediately after its baked, to prevent the bread from getting hard.
