Description

Garlic Parmesan Pull Apart Bread is a rustic, buttery loaf loaded with  flavor. It looks fancy but it could not be easier to make. No yeast or kneading to worry about  because this recipe uses frozen bread dough! 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 one pound loaf frozen white bread dough
  • 4 TBSP softened unsalted butter
  • 1 TBSP dried parsley flakes
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 x 5 loaf pan.
  2. Roll and stretch thawed frozen bread dough into a 12 inch square, on lightly floured board.
  3. In a small bowl, combine softened butter, parsley,garlic,red pepper flakes,salt and pepper. Spread evenly over the 12-inch square of rolled bread dough.
  4. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup of the parmesan cheese, pressing lightly.
  5. With a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut the dough into 16 small squares.
  6. Make four stacks of four squares each.
  7. Place each stack on it’s side in the prepared loaf pan. Gently separate the squares so the dough fills the pan and the squares are touching.
  8. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup parmesan cheese over the assembled loaf.
  9. Cover the loaf loosely with plastic wrap and set the loaf in a warm place until the dough rises by half it’s size, about 2 hours.
  10. Bake the loaf until browned and cooked thru, about 45-50 minutes. Tent with foil if browning too quickly.
  11. Remove the loaf from the oven.
  12. Let cool 15 minutes in the pan, then loosen the sides with a knife.
  13. Transfer the loaf to a plate and let cool an additional 30 minutes before serving.


Notes

Note- 2 TBSP of fresh snipped parsley may be substituted for the dried parsley.
Note – if using salted butter, omit the pinch of salt in the recipe.
Note – reduce or omit the red pepper flakes if you don’t care for spicy bread
