Homemade Cheesy Pizza Bread

Is there anything better than soft cheesy pizza bread? According to my kids, there’s not. Ha! Every time I make this recipe it is gone in about 30 seconds and I wish I had doubled the recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

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!

After you press your dough to the edges of your pizza pan, brush the dough with olive oil and season with garlic salt. Top with a light layer of cheddar cheese and a heavy layer of mozzarella cheese.

Cut Pizza Dough Into Squares

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.

Yah, I need to make another batch. It’s that good.

  • 1 cup warm water 110 degrees F
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons Active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon Lawry's Garlic Salt
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  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.

    Hello! I canโ€™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? ?
