  4. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Grease a baking tray or line it with parchment paper.
  5. Dust some flour and roll the dough into a rectangle, about ½ an inch in thickness.
  6. Cut the dough into 1 inch strips using a pizza cutter or flour scraper (you should be able to cut about 10 strips).
  7. Place the strips on the prepared baking tray. Brush the strips with olive oil. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  8. In a small bowl, whisk together the melted butter, garlic and Pizza and Pasta Seasoning.
  9. Apply the garlic butter mixture on the warm breadsticks.
