Pizza Dough Garlic Bread


I was planning on making a simple pasta dish for dinner, something quick and easy … I used spaghetti noodles, dressed in nothing more than a couple tablespoons of olive oil, fresh parsley, fresh basil and fresh garlic.

I remembered that I had a fresh pizza dough in the refrigerator that I needed to use. I decided to make it into a cheesy garlic bread – however, not too cheesy.

I let my dough rise for 20-30 minutes. Once it had risen, I formed it onto a pizza pan. I brushed a couple tablespoons of melted butter over the dough and topped the butter with a sprinkling of Italian Seasoning and kosher salt, along with a couple cloves of fresh, minced garlic, fresh parsley, and shredded Quattro Formaggio Cheese that I buy at Trader Joe’s.

I folded the dough into thirds, letter style. I sprinkled a bit more Italian Seasoning over the top with a little more fresh parsley and a couple tablespoons of Quattro Formaggio Cheese.


I placed my bread into a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. It was great!


  • 1 fresh pizza dough
  • 1-2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3/4 cup quattro formaggio cheese (Trader Joe’s)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Let dough rise for 20-30 minutes. Form dough into large circle on pizza pan. Brush with melted butter and top with Italian seasoning, kosher salt, garlic, parsley and cheese. Fold dough into thirds, letter style. Sprinkle a pinch of Italian seasoning over the top of the bread with any leftover chopped parsley and a couple tablespoons of cheese. Bake for 20 minutes. Enjoy!

Until next time, Kris

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
