Notes

Pizza Dipping Sauce

1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons - 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

Using a small saucepan, over medium heat, combine tomato sauce, sugar, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and salt.
Bring to a boil and reduce temperature to low to simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and allow to cool somewhat or until needed.
While the breadsticks are in the oven, prepare the breadstick seasoning. 
As soon as the breadsticks come out of the oven, brush each pan with the remaining melted butter, then immediately sprinkle with the breadstick seasoning.
Allow to cool for a few minutes inside the pan and then place onto a cutting board.
Serve breadsticks warm or at room temperature with dipping sauce.
