I love garlic bread. Actually, I love most anything that’s made with garlic! What I don’t love, though, is garlic bread that is dripping in butter. Ick.
This weekend, we were having Chicken Parmigiana and I wanted garlic bread. I sifted through “the pile” and came up with this recipe — it only called for 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Not too shabby! So I gave it a try.
1-13 oz Pillsbury refrigerated pizza crust
1 Tbsp olive oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp Italian seasoning
2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 Tbsp fresh parsley, minced
Unwrap pizza crust and roll it out on a baking sheet according to package directions. Drizzle olive oil on top of crust. Spread garlic on top. Sprinkle Italian seasoning, parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese over pizza crust. Top with parsley. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until top is lightly browned.
Is it a Keeper?
This is an unbelievably easy and delicious recipe! Seriously, it doesn’t get much easier than this! I loved the fresh taste of the minced garlic and fresh parsley! I also liked how it looked rustic and homemade. And, it wasn’t covered in melted butter! That little bit of olive oil was all that was needed.
I used a pizza cutter to cut mine into squares, which seemed to work best for my little guy! I also baked mine on a baking stone.
This recipe will become one of my go-to recipes! Especially, when I make my homemade braciole (Italian stuffed steak).
