{RECIPE} Easy Homemade Garlic Bread

DSC_0981.

I always have pre-made dough in my freezer. It's so easy to defrost and make a quick delicious meal with. I use this recipe, which makes around 8 batches, which you can freeze and bring out whenever needed.


Ingredients:
(serves 2)

1 portion bread dough
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp dried oregano
flour (either strong white bread flour or plain flour)


Directions:

Turn your oven to 150 degrees and put in your pizza stone (or a baking sheet) to heat up in the oven. Flour your work surface well then roll your dough out to a medium thickness. Once rolled it's a good idea to leave the dough to rest for around 15 minutes while your oven is heating up.

In a small pan heat the olive oil and butter then add the garlic (if you don't have a garlic mincer or any pre-minced garlic you can use 2 garlic cloves, crushed with the end of a rolling pin then chopped) and cook over a low heat for around 5 minutes. Don't let the garlic brown in the pan.

Use a spoon or pastry brush to spread the garlic butter over the dough. Sprinkle the oregano evenly over the top. Slide the pizza dough onto your hot pizza stone or baking sheet and allow it to cook for around 20-30 minutes depending on how crispy you like your dough. Do keep your eye on it while it's in the oven. Once ready you can add some freshly milled black pepper, but it's also very nice without.


Quick Tip: 

From my experience the best way to get your dough smoothly into the oven is to put it on a well floured portable surface, such as a chopping board, then slide it onto your pizza stone using a spatula or other large flat utensil. Don't be afraid of using lots of flour. It's better to have a slightly floury base than have one that is ripped from getting stuck to your surface during the transfer process.


Dairy Free, Vegetarian & Vegan Option:
If you are any of the above you will already have your butter alternative. I use this one. Use in place of standard butter.

  3. This looks amazing! I love making my own bread/dough, but never have the time. I like the idea of making a bunch at once and then using it as needed.
