Home Made Garlic Bread!

This is a great recipe to make your own loaf of Garlic Bread, simple & easy! I used the same dough recipe my Pop had given me for my Pizza dough, added my own Garlic Cover and perfect my own Garlic Bread!!! I hope you all enjoy!

"Suo Tutto Mangiare"

Garlic Bread

This does take some time to let the dough rise, I would recommend that you make the dough the night before you want to serve the bread.

Recipe Ingredients:


- 3-4 Cup of Unbleached Flour
- 2 Cups of Warm Water
- 1 Packet of Bakers Yeast

Garlic Cover

- 4-5 Cloves of Garlic
- 1/4 stick of butter
- Onion Flakes
- Italian Seasoning
- 2 teaspoons of Olive Oil
- 1 teaspoon of Garlic Salt

Garlic Bread

Place in a large Bowl 3-4 Cups of Unbleached Flour, then add 2-3 teaspoons of Olive Oil, Yeast & Slowly add your warm water. Add the warm water a little at a time, all while mixing together until the mixture begins to solidify. Mix slowly until everything begins to come together, add flour or water until mixture is together. Then begin to mead the dough by hand folding itself into each other. Round the dough ball and place into the center of the large bowl. Place foil or plastic wrap over bowl and then place in fridge overnight to rise. (You can make the day off and let sit out for 4-5 hours, for best results let sit overnight)
Let it Rise

After a night in the Refrigerator

Garlic Cover

Place your 1/4 stick of butter in small microwaveable safe bowl, then add 4-5 crushed cloves of garlic, 1-2 teaspoons of Italian Seasoning, 1 teaspoon of garlic salt & 1 teaspoon of Onion Flakes. Then place mixture into Microwave for 30 seconds. Then let cool.

Now, get a large baking pan, cover with olive oil or non-stick spray. Take your dough out of the refrigerator and place in center of pan. Try to keep the dough in a large log shape. Press 4-5 thumb imprints in the top of the dough. Then take your Garlic Cover and fill these imprints. Then place 4-5 slits on top of the bread before putting in the oven! Also baste the entire dough with the Garlic Cover, do not be shy!!!

Place your oven on bake 400 degrees, place covered dough in oven for 20 minutes, checking every few minutes, baste when necessary with Garlic Cover until finished. Let cool & serve with one of "Suo Tutto Mangiare"s delicious dishes!!!
