Domino’s has been my favorite pizza brand for a long long time now. It was in 1999 that I first tasted Domino’s pizza at the Times Square outlet. I still remember I was waiting with my mother-in-law in the restaurant for the pizza, while my husband was parking the car in the next block.There was a group of over enthusiastic hooligan teenagers, who were creating a lot of ruckus on the street, yelling, banging on the glass windows of all the shops on the street. Of course, they disappeared in no time ,but to be honest, for a moment it did send a shiver down my spine. But all that vanished as soon as my husband and the pizza arrived. It was the best and yummiest tasting pizza I had till then. Ever since, I have tasted pizzas from almost every brand I could lay my hands on, but I can still say Domino’s sells the tastiest pizzas and sides.Garlic bread sticks is one of my favorite items from their menu, but only second in hierarchy to their delicious Cheese burst pizza.

I wanted to try my hand at making the garlic bread sticks.I found an ultimate recipe at bharatzkitchen.com . I was lucky to have come across this amazing blog. It is hosted by an excellent Chef Bharat Wadhwa. Those of you who haven’t been to this blog must go have a look. It has the most outstanding food on display with some hard to find recipes.Thank you bharatzkitchen.com for sharing this recipe with all Domino’s fans.
The bread sticks turned out so well , my family thought I had ordered them from Domino’s, until I told them they were home made.They tasted exactly like the original Domino’s bread sticks.I added cheese on top as well as inside for extra taste.
