Garlic & cheese pull apart bread

Garlic & cheese pull apart bread

2 packets active dry yeast
1 1/3 cups warm water
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
3 1/2 cups bread flour
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella

step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

step 2
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the yeast and water. Let sit 5 minutes until yeast is foamy. Mix in the olive oil, salt, and flour. If you have a stand mixer, attach the dough hook and knead the dough for 5-6 minutes, or until elastic. Transfer dough to a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a clean kitchen towel. Allow to rise for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until dough is doubled in size.

step 3
In a small bowl, combine melted butter, parsley flakes, and minced garlic. Set aside.

step 4
Punch down the dough. Tear off small pieces of dough, roll into a ball, coat in the butter mixture, and place in the bottom of a bundt pan. Repeat this process until you have one layer of dough balls. Sprinkle on 1/3 of the Parmesan & mozzarella cheese.

step 5
Continue layering the dough balls and cheese until you have 3 layers. Cover the pan with a clean towel and allow to sit until dough has doubled in size, 20-30 minutes.

step 6
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until bread is golden brown. Serve hot with a side of marinara or pizza sauce.
