Gluten-Free Herbed Bread Sticks and Dipping Sauce

September2010 202 My resolution for this year was to use up a jar of yeast and a bag of xanthan gum before they expired. This might be the first resolution that I have ever kept!

I have been having fun playing with pizza dough. Yesterday, I tried my hand at bread sticks. I slightly modified my Garlic and Herb Pizza Dough recipe.

It has obviously been a long time since we have had bread sticks because we devoured all of them in less than 24 hours.  They were so easy to make that these will become a regular treat at our house.

1 1/4 brown rice flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/4 cup potato starch
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon rosemary
1 teaspoon basil
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
3/4 cup warm water (120 – 130 degrees)
2 tablespoons oil


1. In a large bowl, stir together the dry ingredients (including spices) until completely mixed. Add the egg, water, and oil. Stir until it is completely mixed. Form the dough into a ball.

2. Sprinkle a baking pan with rice flour. Roll your dough out 1/2 inch thick on the sheet. If the rolling pin sticks, sprinkle the top of the crust with rice flour. Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into 1” by 5” rectangles. September2010 1963. Cover loosely with a towel or plastic wrap and let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. After about 20 minutes has elapsed, preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

4. Bake for 9 -11 minutes at 450 degrees. Remove the oven and while the bread is still warm, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic powder.
