6 people

  • 500 g of flour 00
  • 15 g of brewer's yeast
  • 250 g of water

  • olive oil

Dissolve the yeast in a little warm water and add about 50 grams of flour to obtain a soft dough that you will let rest at room temperature for about half an hour. Pour the remaining flour (450 gr.) Into the mixer, add the salt, water and yeast. Start the mixer and after a few minutes you will get a smooth and elastic dough. It is ready when small bubbles appear on the surface.

If you are without a mixer you have to work for a long time, about 15 minutes, beating the dough on the table with your hands to obtain the same result.

Then transfer it to a floured surface with durum wheat flour, flatten it to form a rather regular rectangle of about 40 x 10 cm and let it rise in a sheltered place for the time necessary for it to double its volume. It will take about an hour.

With a long-bladed knife cut the dough from the short side in order to obtain sticks about a finger wide. With the palms of your hands lightly floured, starting from the center and pressing lightly, roll the sticks on the pastry board to form the breadsticks.

Place them hand by hand on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, spacing them well from each other. Brush them with water emulsified with oil and then bake them at 220 & deg degrees in a preheated oven. Cooking times vary according to the thickness of the breadsticks: from 5 minutes if they are very thin up to 15/20 minutes as they increase in thickness.

Put it back in the container, cover it with plastic wrap and let it rest in a warm place away from currents for 2 hours. At the end of the two hours take the dough and roll it out with the help of a rolling pin, try to keep a thickness of 3 mm. Cut strips about one cm wide and roll the dough with your hands to create your breadsticks. Place them on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper, brush them with oil and salt them.
