From everyones childhood on up there’s something we will always love! Something we can always go for. Something that we can serve as a side dish with absolutely any dinner menu and have it be incredible! Something we remember eating off of our lunch trays in the school cafeteria trying to imagine that they really weren’t as greasy as they actually were. Lol. That something.. is CHEESY BREAD! You don’t have to wait until a Friday night after the kids get settled down from getting home after school to indulge in this delectable cheesy, and exceptionally crusty goodness. I know ordering from your favorite pizza parlor is super convenient, and you may even crave that specific taste from each different place, but you can build this cheesy bread in the comfort of your own home any time of the day! Of course there’s going to be days where were going to order out because we’re having a party, or we’re just craving it to the absolute max, but I can guarantee you that no matter how amazing you think someone else’s breadsticks are.. these are going to be that much better. They are the cheesiest, most flavorful chewy breadsticks; kicked up a notch with blasts of buttermilk ranch dressing!
When you think of a party.. think of these little stunning stringy sticks! It is for sure the ultimate party food, and if you even think of arguing that concept, think again! This herby ranch cheesy bread is the perfect pick food for a party. It may actually be the king of all party foods!! There will be no-one turning there noses up to this no matter their food preferences, or how picky you are! If you are vegan and/or gluten free you can make this exact same recipe with vegan cheese, and gluten free pizza crust!
Building this bad boy is super super simple! You can even have the kids jump in and help with this one. There really isn’t any mess or clean up, so that’s a big plus especially when everyones hands are in the kitchen helping at once.
Steps for making this ridiculously tasty ranch cheesy bread:
- Rub good olive oil all over the crust.
- Sprinkle one whole bag of shredded mozzarella cheese all over the crust.
- Sprinkle a quarter of a bag of shredded white cheddar cheese all over the top of the mozzarella cheese.
- Drizzle the entire top of the pizza crust with your favorite ranch dressing. It could even be homemade!! That would honestly make it even more incredible.
- Garnish everything off with dried parsley, dill, and oregano. Also, add salt & pepper TT.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until the crust is to your liking! I like my crust very browned, and crisp!
So cheesy, so crusty, so ranchy, and so so herby!
There is one important rule to this cheesy bread! DO NOT cut this like a pizza! It isn’t supposed to be a pizza. It’s meant to be cut into fun little sticks to pop into your mouth while sitting on the couch on a Saturday night binge watching Netflix with all your friends, or to dance around with while you mingle at a party.
You can serve them any which way you fancy, but I love the wooden platter next to the crust! It looks very Tuscany, and has a fabulous Italian flare to it. No matter what the occasion, or how fun the theme may be, your guests will always be so pleasantly surprised when they hit those wonderful ranch pouches while munching on this cheesy bread! Ranch is normally something many many people adore dipping their pizza in, so since this is a relative to our delicious cheese pizza, I thought it would be the perfect topping to this delicious herby, cheesy goodness! This is a movie night masterpiece, so grab one of these yummy sticks, and get cozy on the couch Diamonds!
