Garlic Bread ! (Dominos Style)


Hi Guys,

Garlic Bread  is available in many forms in different restaurants and eat outs.. but my personal choice is the one we get in Dominos Pizza. Sometimes I just go and buy only the garlic bread and enjoy it alone. I never thought I could make this at home so easily.
It is definitely a real treat when you make at home as it is very simple to make and not much time consuming except for the dough resting period. 
I went through many recipes and tried 5 to 6 times till now. First two attempts was not so perfect. Then I tweaked the ingredient ratios and tried again and again and now it turns out perfect.. so soft and so flavourful. 



INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups Plain flour / Maida
  • 10 - 15 Garlic cloves (finely chopped or minced)
  • 1 tsp salt (or as needed)
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 - 3 tbsp corn meal
  • 1 tbsp mixed dried herbs (oregano and parsley)

STEPS
  • In a bowl, take 1/4 cup warm water and add the yeast. Then add 1 tsp of sugar and mix well.
  • This is called yeast proofing. Let the yeast sugar mixture rest for 10 - 15 minutes until it becomes foamy.



  • In a mixing bowl, add the flour and salt.
  • Add the garlic to it. You can see the yeast mixture foamed up. If its not foamed properly then there is a problem with the yeast.



  • Make a dent in the flour and Pour the yeast mixture, melted butter and milk.



  • Start mixing and add some oil to it and mix well to forma nice dough.
  • It should look like our chapati dough.



  • Knead the dough for 5 - 10 minutes on a flat surface until smooth and elastic.
  • Apply some oil on the surface of the dough and also grease the bowl. Place the dough ball in the bowl and cover it with a plastic wrap and set aside in a warm area for 3 - 4 hours to let it double in size.



  • Punch the dough back and knead for another 2 - 3  minutes.
  • Spread some corn meal on the counter top and spread the dough in to a circle either with your fingers or use a rolling pin. 
  • On a baking tray, place a foil and grease it with oil/butter.
  • The corn meal makes the outer of the bread very crispy.



  • Now fold the circle into half and very carefully lift it and place it on the baking tray. Brush some melted butter on the bread.
  • Sprinkle the dried herbs on top. Put a lot of oregano for a wonderful flavour.
  • Use a knife mark lines on the dough as shown. Do not cut them through fully.


  • Preheat the oven, and bake the bread at 200 degree C for 6 - 7 minutes.
  • Now increase the temp to 220 degree C and then bake for another 6- 7 minutes. But please do keep an eye as the temp and time varies with diff ovens
  • Once it turns golden brown it is ready to be out of the oven.

Once it is out of the oven let it rest for 5 minutes. The pieces come off easily and enjoy your garlic bread with a cheesy dip. Cant ask for anything more !!!!






With Love,

    1. Yes Pavithra, you can replace it with just plain flour. Corn meal will give a crispy outer layer. !
