3 Ingredient Flourless Cheese Breadsticks

overhead photo of sliced Flourless Cheesy BreadsticksThese cheesy breadsticks are super easy to make. They only require 3 ingredients and are also gluten-free and low carb.

So I feel slightly less guilty that I ate almost the entire thing by myself. Totally not exaggerating. I saved 3 pieces for Mr. K and the rest went straight into my stomach.

The dough for these breadsticks is actually a cheese pizza crust. Cheese, eggs and a little seasoning are mixed together and baked to form a thin pizza-like crust.

How to Make the Cheese Crust

Step 1: Combine the cheese, eggs, and seasonings in a food processor until smooth.

Step 2: Process the cheese mixture until smooth.

Step 3: Press the cheese mixture into an even layer in a square baking pan lined with parchment paper.

Step 4: Bake the cheese crust at 350°F for 20 minutes.

Once the crust is baked it doesn’t just taste like a bunch of melted cheese. It looks like a crust and it has a chewy and soft texture.

The crust is then topped with more cheese and baked until melted, for a cheesy finish.

You can eat them as is or dip them in marinara sauce. I absolutely loved how these turned out. Crispy, cheesy, chewy. I can’t wait to make them again.

The easiest cheesy breadsticks. You only need three ingredients to make these low-carb and gluten-free breadsticks.


For the Breadsticks

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

For the Topping

  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp shredded parmesan cheese optional
  • 1 tsp finely chopped parsley optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9 x 9 inch square baking pan with parchment paper. (I like to do the 2 sheets of parchment paper going in opposite directions, like in the photo above).
  2. In a food processor, add 1 1/2 cups cheese, eggs and seasoning. Blend until everything is combined.
  3. Scoop out batter into baking pan. Carefully spread mixture until it evenly covers the bottom of the pan. Place into the oven and bake for about 20 minutes. The crust should be fairly firm with no wet dough remaining on top. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 425°F. Carefully remove crust off of parchment paper and place onto an oven-safe cooling rack. The cooling rack will help allow the bottom to crisp up. Sprinkle surface with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. If desired, you can substitute 2 tbsp of mozzarella for 2 tbsp of parmesan which gives it a little different flavor. Place cooling rack into the oven and cook breadsticks for about 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and blistered.

  5. If desired, sprinkle with parsley before cutting and serving.


You can add in other cheese blends for more variation but I recommend that the crust be mainly mozzarella cheese as some cheeses, like cheddar, will cause the crust to be too salty.

  1. I made this last night to have with my chili. How many carbs per recipe?

    • I do not yet have that information. I suggest using a site like Verywell.com which provides a nutrition calculator for recipes

  2. We made these last night and they were so good! We want to try it with low carb sauce and some toppings to make pizza next. 

  3. This was just what I needed! I was totally craving pizza tonight & this was perfect. I made as directed then topped it with 1/4 cup Rao’s and an ounce of thin sliced tomatoes. before adding the cheese and popping it back in the oven. Ate it all, stayed within my macros so no guilt 🙂

  4. Can you make this a day before? Will it keep?

  5. Is there something else you can use if you don’t have a food processor? 

  6. I tried it but I cut the recipe in half. It tasted like an omelette, “eggy”. Did I maybe not use enough cheese? Any suggestions?

    • It sounds like you may not have used enough cheese. The eggs are there simply as a binding agent. They should not result in an eggy taste at all.

  7. Can you tell me where the 15 carbs come from if there is 5 servings and 3 carbs each ? I know the eggs would be 2 and the cheeses are less than 1 per fourth cup if any 

    • it’s coming from the cheese. Depending on the brand and type of mozzarella you use, it will rang between 1-3 carbs per 1/4 cup and there are a little over 2 cups of cheese in this recipe.
