  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Unroll pizza dough onto large cutting board and press into a 12x10-inch rectangle. Cut dough in half lengthwise. Then cut each half into 12 (1-inch wide) strips. Twist each strip into a finger-shaped breadstick and place on a parchment-lined shallow baking pan. Press one almond slice into one end of each breadstick to resemble a fingernail.

  • Bake breadsticks for 8 minutes, or until breadsticks are golden brown.

  • Meanwhile, mix butter and McCormick® Garlic Powder in a small bowl. Brush hot breadsticks with butter mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

  • Squeeze desired food color into a small bowl. Use a small paintbrush to paint almond slices with food color and allow it to dry. Serve with your favorite pizza or spaghetti sauce for dipping, if desired.
