Given the choice between candy and bread I’ll choose bread almost every time. Cover that bread with cheese and garlic and it wins hands down! With today’s recipe you can now make your own Stuffed Cheesy Bread at home, just like your favorite pizza place.
Whenever we order pizza I am the boring cheese girl. I love my cheese pizza. So when no one else wants cheese but me I’ll order some cheesy bread for myself and let everyone else choose the pizza toppings.
The bread is pure cheese goodness, inside and out. Not only is the bread topped with a nice layer of cheese but there is cheese sandwiched in between the layers of dough.
How to Make Cheesy Bread
Dough. If you have questions about working with yeast check out this post. Allow dough to raise until doubled, 1 – 1 1/2 hours.
Cheese. I use a combination of Cheddar Cheese, Mozzarella and Parmesan. It would also be good with some Monterey Jack of even some Pepper Jack.
Assemble Stuffed Cheesy Bread
- Divide dough into two pieces and roll each piece into an 8 inch square. Place dough on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Sprinkle each square with 1/2 cup of Mozzarella cheese.
- Fold dough over and seal, pressing down with fingers.
- Slice the dough crosswise at one inch intervals, Do not cut all the way through the other side.
- Sprinkle top of each piece with half the cheesy garlic mixture.
- Add dried parsley on top.
- Bake at 450 degrees F for 12-14 minutes or until dough is cooked through and cheese is golden brown.
- Pull apart the layers to reveal a lovely layer of gooey cheese!
How to Serve Stuffed Cheesy Bread
It is perfect as an appetizer or as a side dish to any meal. When served as an appetizer add a marinara or ranch sauce for dipping.
I love to serve it with:
- Spaghetti and Meat Sauce
- Easy Tomato Soup
- Pasta E Fagioli Soup
- Herb Pasta
- Slow Cooker Parmesan Honey Pork
