Garlic bread dough

  • 1/4 cup milk

  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp butter unsalted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

Garlic butter

  • 1/4 cup butter melted

Garlic bread dough

  • To make your dough for garlic bread, you need to first mix warm milk, yeast, and sugar in a bowl and then let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • Now add salt, garlic, and oregano to the mix and stir well. 
  • Once everything has been mixed properly, add the all-purpose flour and butter to it and start kneading. After your dough is ready, coat it with oil and let it rest for 2 hours.

Garlic bread recipe

  • Take a small bowl and mix butter and garlic in it. 
  • Next, spread the buttered garlic over your dough and top half of it with mozzarella cheese. Season it with chili flakes, oregano, and mixed herbs.

  • Now, fold the dough and seal it from the edges. Again, spread garlic-infused butter on top of it. You can also sprinkle oregano and chili flakes over it. Make marks on the top of the bread where you want to cut it.
  • It's time for the final step now. Bake your bread in a preheated oven at 180 degrees F for 15 minutes. Your garlic bread is ready now, cut it into pieces, and serve hot.


You can want your garlic bread to either be toasty or soft. 
  • For crispy garlic bread, you need to cut your bread into two halves, spread it with butter, and then bake it face-open in the oven. Once baked, you can then broil it for an additional texture.
  • For soft garlic bread, slice your bread but do not cut it to the bottom. It should look somewhat like an accordion. Butter the bread in between, wrap it in a foil, and then bake it. This will ensure that your bread remains soft.
