Garlic Pizza Bread
“A firm favourite, this is the best recipe to make perfect garlic pizza breads at home”
— Jon Watts


Serves 4


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 220℃. Make sure to have two large oven trays in the oven so that they are hot for when the time comes to bake the breads. In a large mixing bowl add the strong white bread flour, fast action yeast, salt and caster sugar

Step 2

Mix well. Pour in the tepid (warm) water and olive oil, then use a wooden spoon to mix it until a flaky dough starts to form

Step 3

Bring it together with your hands, then tip the dough out onto a floured surface and knead it for about ten minutes. After 10 minutes the dough should be soft and not sticky

Step 4

Place it into a bowl and cover it with cling film. Set it aside in a warm place for about an hour or until it has doubled in size. Once it has doubled in size, knead it again for a minute or so to knock all of the air out

Step 5

Cut the dough into 8 equal sized portions then use your hands to form each portion into a smooth ball. Use semolina to roll each piece out to about 15 cm, the semolina will give it a nice crisp

Step 6

Place the rolled out dough onto baking paper and set aside for 20 minutes. Meanwhile you can prepare the garlic butter. In a bowl add the softened butter, chopped garlic and chopped parsley. Mix well until it is well combined

Step 7

Spread the garlic butter over the middle of each piece of dough leaving a 1 cm border around the edge

Step 8

Grate gruyere over the top of each one. Place the breads onto the hot trays from the oven and bake for about 10 minutes until they are golden and crisp
