Garlic cheese pizza
My love for garlic pizza runs deep, which is not any shock to anybody who is aware of me. It’s actually 100% cheese and carbs, with out even an oz of good-for-you greens. That just about sums me up.😂
Some days I actually want I used to be one in all “these folks” who genuinely craves contemporary greens over cheese and carbs. It’s not that I hate greens, I don’t in any respect! It’s simply……effectively, you understand. Put a piping scorching garlic cheese pizza in entrance of me, in all its magnificent melty tacky glory, alongside the very best salad on the planet, and there’s simply no query what I’m going for, each single time:
You should utilize any pizza base you need – selfmade basic, this magic no-yeast pizza base or retailer purchased. However for greatest outcomes, grate your individual cheese! Retailer purchased pre-grated is packaged with anti-caking brokers which prevents the cheese from melting properly.
Garlic – Recent, and solely contemporary! Garlic pasties jars and tubes have an disagreeable sourness to them because of the preservatives. There isn’t any substitution for the actual factor!
Mozzarella cheese – For melting perfection and beautiful brown golden spots on the floor. Additionally, mozzarella shouldn’t be oily like different cheeses.
Parmesan – This provides flavour, as a result of parmesan is loaded with savoury flavour and is salty.
Olive oil – Blended with the garlic to unfold on the pizza base.
Salt – For seasoning. Just one/8 teaspoon is required
Pizza dough choices
As for the pizza base, select what works for you! Listed below are my choices:
Basic pizza base (yeast based mostly) – Italian wooden fired pizza type! This takes 5 to six hours to make together with 2 dough-proofing periods however is straight ahead. Hand knead 5 minutes or 40 second meals processor blitz.
Magic no-yeast pizza base – This isn’t a tragic substitution for a basic yeast pizza base. It’s actually good! Made in 40 seconds flat from begin to end utilizing a meals processor, no resting or rising required.
Retailer purchased, or different selfmade pizza base of selection.
The right way to make Garlic Cheese Pizza
My little secret tip is to infuse the oil with beautiful garlic flavour by setting it apart for simply 10 minutes. And use a garlic press for max launch of flavour!
Steep oil with garlic – Combine the oil and garlic and put aside for 10 minutes to infuse with flavour.
Stretch your chosen pizza base onto a pizza pan, ideally one with holes in it (crispy base!).
Unfold the garlic infused oil over the bottom.
Sprinkle with parmesan then mozzarella, leaving a border across the crust (for gripping functions).
Be aware: In case you are utilizing my no-yeast pizza base, spray or brush the uncovered edge with olive oil so it browns. You don’t want to do that for yeast-based pizza dough.
Bake for 8 minutes in a scorching 250°C / 480°F (230°C fan) oven, rotating the tray midway, till you have got beautiful golden spots on the cheese.
Lower and eat!
Lower and devour instantly, whereas the cheese it at its melty, oozy perfection. Marvel at how related it’s to that nice pizzeria you went to some months in the past with your pals, however really feel smug that this selfmade one price you lower than $6 to make and the way you get to eat it within the consolation of your individual house in trackies and ugg boots.

- Basic pizza dough (yeast) – 5 min hand knead or stand-mix or 40 second meals processor, plus 4 to six hours rising time (throughout 2 rises)
- No yeast pizza dough – That is wonderful, not a tragic substitute for yeast pizza. 40 seconds in meals processor, or hand knead. NO RISE TIME.
- Retailer purchased – something of your selection, un-cooked or par-cooked (else it would burn earlier than cheese melts)
2. Garlic – For the very best outcomes, we would like the garlic in a paste kind so it totally infuses the oil with flavour. In the event you don’t have a garlic crusher, finely mince the garlic utilizing your knife then smear it right into a paste utilizing the facet of the knife.
Please don’t use retailer purchased garlic paste – it’s bitter from preservatives.
3. Cheese notes – Freshly shredded melts / spreads higher as a result of pre-shredded in packets are coated with anti-clumping brokers. If utilizing cups for measuring, shred first then pack it in tightly else you’ll be quick – so unhappy. I lower hunks of cheese, weigh, then grate.
