How to shape breadsticks
- After breadsticks dough has finished it’s first rise, gently punch it down to release the gases and knead a few times by hand.
- Divide dough into 12 pieces, shaping each into a ball. Use a digital scale if possible to make sure each piece is the same size.
- On a clean surface, roll each ball of dough out into a rope about 8 inches long. Start with your hands together in the center, then pull them outward as you roll to help stretch the dough.
- Place rope of dough onto your prepared pan. Place close together for pull-apart breadsticks.
Note: In between working with the dough, keep it stored under plastic wrap to prevent it from drying out.
