Is there anything better than soft cheesy pizza bread? According to my kids, there’s not. Every time I make this recipe it is gone in about 30 seconds and I wish I had doubled the recipe 🙂 Perfect fluffy soft crust that is hard to resist with warm melty cheese a little olive oil and garlic salt. To die for friends. Enjoy!

How To Make Cheesy Pizza Bread

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. and line pizza pan with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.
  2. Place warm water, yeast and sugar into mixer bowl. Have the dough hook attachment on. Mix gently and let nearly double in size, about 5 minutes. With mixer on low add flour, olive oil, salt and garlic salt. Scrape sides of bowl and let knead for 5 minutes until dough is cleaning sides of bowl. Add sprinkles of additional flour if it’s not. Remove dough with floured hands and transfer to a floured countertop. Fold dough over itself a couple times then form into a round. Place onto pizza pan and press into a 12 inch round, larger for a more thin crust. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic salt then top with cheeses.
  3. Bake for about 15 minutes, until crust is cooked through. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before slicing into wedges. Serve with a salad if desired.

I use a pizza cutter and cut into squares instead of wedges, but either works. The squares are perfect for dipping in pizza sauce or just eating alone.

    I absolutely LOVED this recipe! Because I’m not a fan of cheddar, I substituted with Italian 5-cheese blend and it was scrumptious. We ate every bite and I can’t wait to make it again. Thanks for posting this excellent recipe!

    Hello! I can’t wait to try your homemade cheesy pizza bread! I just have one quick question. Does the dough need to rise at any point between making, and baking? ?

    I made these this past weekend and my husband was obsessed! I could hardly get two pieces! Delish!

    I spent some time last weekend looking for cheesey breadstick recipes. I think they’d be perfect with tomato soup this fall. This recipe looks great!
