Makes: 10-15 breadsticks[url:5][img:3][/url]
Ingredients
  • My Pizza dough, ½ portion
  • • Garlic bulb, 1 whole
  • • Olive oil, 2 tablespoons (for roasting the garlic)
  • • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • • Butter, 3 tablespoons, melted
  • • Mozzarella Cheese, 1 cup, grated
  • • Parmesan cheese, 2-3 tablespoons (optional)
Method
  1. Pizza Dough: Get your pizza dough ready. Get the recipe for my pizza dough from here. You’re going to need only half of it so freeze the other half and use it later.
  2. To Roast the Garlic: Cut off the top part of a garlic bulb (the hairy part; the one that holds the garlic cloves together) and lay it on a baking tray. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and pepper onto it and Grill/Broil (only top rod on) in an oven for 20 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius (No preheating is required).
  3. Once your garlic is roasted, take it out and peel it once it’s cool enough to handle.

  5. The insides will be really soft, chop them finely and mix with your melted butter in a bowl and set aside.
  6. Assemble: Line a baking tray with parchment/butter paper or foil.

  8. Flatten out your pizza dough with hand or rolling pin until half an inch thick and lay it on the baking tray. Brush the melted butter garlic mix over it until the dough is covered completely. Don’t leave out the sides. Sprinkle salt and pepper and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes.
  9. Once the bread is baked, take it out and cut into strips with a pizza cutter. Now put all the garlic bread strips together and sprinkle mozzarella cheese over it. Keep your baking tray on the top most shelf of your oven and Grill/Broil (only top rod on) the bread for 5-10 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius. Take out the bread once your cheese is nice and golden. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and Enjoy!
