Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks


Who doesn’t like garlic bread-sticks? I remember having them first when I visited Pizza Hut. Pizza Hut is famous for their Garlic bread-sticks. There are a few recipes for the Pizza dough on the net. I have tried few of them and this recipe is a keeper for sure. The bread turned out to be super soft and good and we liked the addition of garlic for flavour to the bread itself. I didn’t find the flavours overpowering the dish but you could add more garlic if you just need it to scream Garlic!!

Recipe

Adapted from: here

All purpose flour (Maida) : 2 Cups + 2 tbsp divided

Warm water : 1 cup, 45-50 degree warm

Sugar : 1 tbsp

Instant Dried Yeast : 2 tsp

Garlic salt : 1 tsp (refer notes for substitute)

Mozarella / Pizza cheese blend : 1 cup (original recipe calls for 2 cups)

Parsley :  2 tsp finely chopped

Olive oil : 2 tsp

Butter Garlic spread :

Butter : 1 tbsp

Garlic : 2 fat cloves, grated or heavily crushed

Italian Seasoning /Oregano : 3/4 tsp

Red chilli flakes : 1/2 tsp (optional)

Method:

Mix Sugar and yeast to the warm water and keep aside. Pls refer notes on activating yeast

In a large bowl, or the bowl of the stand mixer, add the garlic salt and flour. Mix well

Now add the frothy yeast mixture to the flour and start kneading using hands. Use the method as for garlic bread rolls. If using a stand mixer or a hand mixer knead for about 7-8 minutes on medium speed using the kneading blade.Towards the end of the kneading process add about 1-2 tsp olive oil.

Once done the dough will be very sticky. Rub little oil so as to form a ball. Cover with cling wrap and set aside to double in size for about an hour.

Punch the dough and grease a 32 x 22 cm pan with oil and  spread the dough into a rectangle the size of the baking sheet.

Spread butter, oregano and garlic mixture.

Sprinkle the cheese. Top it with finely chopped parsley

Now, preheat your oven to about 220 C and above and bake the bread for 15-18 minutes

Remove. Slice as required and serve with any tomato dip/sauce.

 

 

Notes :

If you dont have garlic salt. Mix 3/4 tsp salt with 1 tsp garlic powder.
