Welcome  to Baking Bloggers! We get  together each month to post on a topic of some sort of baked recipe,  which we all vote on. For October for fun and on a Halloween theme, we decided to do “Vampires Beware! We’re Baking with Garlic!”  For my selection today, I have made bread sticks seasoned with garlic,   Parmesan and herbs, and shaped  into fun and creepy snakes, which kids should love!

Garlic Breadstick Snakes

These are made   easily with a tube of ready-to-go pizza dough, although you can make your  own if you prefer.

Sprinkled with seasonings and cheese, then  rolled up, then rolled out into ropes, these are simple enough for the kids to help make.

From there, you can serve these with a bit of marinara or garlic butter as a bread appetizer, or you could choose to serve this with something like spaghetti, or perhaps a warm bowl of  minestrone soup. What a perfect warm-up  to feed the kids before heading out on Beggar’s Night to do  a bit of Trick-or Treating or to have as a nibble for a frightfully  fun Halloween party!

Garlic Breadstick Snakes

  • 1 (11 ounce) roll Pillsbury thin crust pizza crust
  • Seasonings: garlic powder, dried oregano, salt, Parmesan  cheese
  • toasted sesame seeds,as needed
  • 2 slices thick bacon,  cooked crisp and crumbled
  • 3-4 sun-dried tomatoes, sliced
  • Marina sauce or garlic butter (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Spread out half the dough, and sprinkle with garlic powder, dried oregano, a little bit of salt, and Parmesan cheese.
  3. Take the piece of seasoned dough and roll up like a jelly roll,  then cut into six pieces, pinching the edges closed  to seal in the seasonings.
  4. Roll out each piece  into a long rope,  considering  it will shrink back a bit, so roll out really long.
  5. Cover ropes lightly in toasted sesame seeds.
  6. Ball up the end of each rope to make a round head,  then pinch hard around the “neck” (makes it look better).
  7. Place ropes on baking sheet  in  a serpentine fashion. 
  8. Bake for 15-18 minutes until light brown.
  9. Cut strips of sun-dried tomato and cut a  little hole where the mouth would be and  push it  in to be a tongue. 
  10. Do the same for the eyes with bits of crumbled bacon.
  11. Repeat with  the rest of the  dough.
  12. Serve bread sticks warm with marinara sauce or garlic butter (if desired).
