Having pizza is a ritual me and sakshi follow every month. She being just 4 yrs old loves her pizza’s and i am the same as well. We both make it a point to visit the pizza hut outlet at least once in a month.It all started this year when the school’s started and i took her for a pizza party as a celebration for another year in school, and she loved it there and always used to ask me to take her there again. So once in a month i go to pick her up from school and we both have a pizza afterwards. Love the mother daughter time we have there and have a happy eating as well.
Today’s post is not about pizza but it is about the garlic bread we order along with the pizza. As simran even i love the pizza’s of pizza hut but not a great fan of their garlic bread but i love the garlic bread of Domino’s even though their pizza’s are sometimes ok ok. So when i saw this post of hers i wanted to give it a try as well.

Prepare Garlic Bread
Heat water till warm and add yeast to it.
Let the yeast proof for 5 mins till you see a frothy mixture.
Add 1 cup flour to it and mix nicely with a laddle.
Rest this batter for 45 mins till it doubles.
Add the remaining flour,3 cloves garlic grated and salt and mix nicely.
At this stage i had to add couple of tbsp of water to get the dough together.
Knead it nicely and transfer to a floured counter space and knead the dough for the 8-10 mins till the dough is smooth and springy.
The dough will be a bit sticky so i had to spread some oil in my hands to get the dough together.
Let the dough double again which can take from 1 hr or more.
Preheat the oven at 200c
Transfer the dough again on floored counter space and slightly roll it into a rectangle shape.
Brush with oilive oil and be generous with this and sprinkle the seasoning and spread the remaining grated garlic.
Make vertical strips with the help of pizza cutter or knife
Transfer it to a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 15 mins.
Have it fresh out of the oven.
Prepare Cheesy Dip
Heat butter in an pan and add maida.
Saute on a low flame for 30 seconds, take off the flame and add milk and whisk nicely.
Cook till it comes to a boil and add slowly all the remaining ingredients.
Whisk the mixture continually.
Serve it with the hot garlic bread and have fun eating.
You can use dried garlic powder as simran used.
I grilled the bread for the last 2-3 mins to get a nice brown on the top.
