"Quick Bread" Breadsticks or Pizza Crust (vegan)

I am always looking for shortcuts. I like simple, easy, no fuss recipes I can throw together at the last second, because I often don't plan ahead (I roll with my days)...

Here's our latest favorite - breadsticks! We like them with garlic but you can do whatever you want with them.

I wanted a super easy, whole grain, pourable batter.... but of course, if you want to use white flour, it will work fine too. I really wanted something pourable because it just seemed so much simpler!

Quick Breadsticks (Basic)

3 cups whole wheat flour (sifted)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp coarse salt
1 tsp sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cups water + 1.5 tsp apple cider vinegar

olive oi
crushed garlic or granulated garlic
sesame seeds
coarse salt
anything else you like

Mix together dry ingredients, then make a well in the middle and add wet ingredients. Stir with a large spoon. Combine thoroughly. 

The mixture will be batter, not dough.


Pour half the batter onto a lined cookie sheet. 


Spread it out with your mixing spoon. Sprinkle the top with olive oil, then top as desired.


Bake at 200 C for about 20 min (but check it because my oven is acting a little funny, it may not be heating up enough!)
Cut and serve. These come out pretty thin and flat, but tasty. If you want them thicker, experiment with making this recipe in just ONE cookie sheet instead of two.


You can also use this as pizza crust, by the way. Just bake for half the time, then top with your favorite pizza toppings and bake for another 8-10 min.

Let me know if you give it a try!

    1. Thanks Susann! Please let me know if you give it a try!

  2. I made this last night as a pizza. I had 500g flour left in my 5-kilo bag, so I just stuck it all in. Made a less poury batter, but that was better for me, as I rolled it out onto my pizza trays. Made 2 decent sized pizzas, plenty to feed a hungry family of 5. Will absolutely make it again.

    1. So glad to hear it worked out well for you!
      Thanks so much for letting me know!

  3. Hi it lookes great if i dont have apple cider vinager what should i do ? Just regelar vinegar or just leave it out of the recepy

    1. I would sub either white vinegar or a splash of lemon juice

  4. I have made this twice now as pizza crust, and it's perfect! Quick, easy, and yummy. I halve the recipe and make it in one sheet pan.
    Thank you for sharing.
