Stuffed Garlic Bread

TH is a big fan of garlic bread. Whenever we go to Dominos, he order for garlic bread for sure. Initially the bread served over there was too good with garlic flavor. Even it attracted me who hardly touch anything with garlic. For the past couple of times, we ordered for two stuffed garlic breads along with pizzas for home delivery from the nearby shop. Though the breads were delivered on time, one bread was very rubbery and soggy and other was not having the stuffing at all. TH was totally upset and stopped ordering the breads from then.

Three months before, I thought of recreating the same garlic bread at home. When all my cousins around there, I prepared 4 large size breads using the yeast which I brought from the UK for my first attempt and it was a huge success among all. The yeast which I brought from UK was over and thought of trying the same bread again with the yeast available here. To my luck, the yeast didn’t prove at all. After checking with few of my blogger friends, I got a good pack of yeast last week from the shops they mentioned and tried these stuffed breads again yesterday. All have gone in no minute after taking the picture for the blog. To point out, my mom who doesn’t like cheese grabbed a whole medium size bread.

Basic Information:

Preparation Time: 30-35 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Idle Time: 1-2 Hour

Makes: 3 medium size breads


For Bread:

All purpose flour / Maida / Plain flour – 1 and 1/2 cups + 1/2 cup

Active dry yeast – 1 tablespoon

Granulated sugar – 1/2 tablespoon

Salt – 1/2 teaspoon

Olive oil – 2 tablespoons

Water – 1/2 cup + as required to make dough

For Garlic Spread:

Garlic cloves – 10 nos, medium size

Unsalted butter – 1/3 cup, at room temperature

Red chilli flakes – 2 teaspoons

Dried spice mix – 2 teaspoons (includes oregano, basil and thyme)

Salt – a pinch

For Stuffing:

Sweet corn – 1/2 cup

Pickled jalapenos – 1/4 cup

Mozzarella cheese – 1 cup, grated or finely chopped


For Bread:

1) Heat 1/2 cup of water to luke warm temperature. Add active dry yeast and sugar. Beat using a spoon till the yeast dissolves completely.

2) Keep aside untouched for 7-10 minutes to prove. After 7 minutes, you can see the frothy bubbles which means the yeast proved well. If not, throw the yeast and buy new pack to prepare this bread.

3) In a wide mixing bowl, take all purpose flour and salt. Add proved yeast mixture and a tablespoon of olive oil to it. Mix well.

4) Add water slowly till you get a soft and sticky dough. Knead it in a floored surface till you get soft and slightly sticky dough. Feel free to add more dough to reach the required dough consistency. At the same time, take extra care not make very stiff and dry dough.

5) Coat the dough with the remaining olive oil. Place it in the greased bowl and cover using a cling wrap and keep it aside for 1 hour or until it doubled in its size. It depends on the place you kept the dough for raising.

6) Meanwhile, prepare garlic spread and stuffing.

For Garlic Spread:

1) Take butter in a bowl.

2) Add red chilli flakes and dried spice mix. Mix well.

3) Make a paste of garlic cloves using a mixer. Add this paste to the butter spice mix. Add a very small pinch of salt.

4) Mix well. Now the garlic spread is ready.

For Stuffing:

1) Steam cook the sweetcorn for 5-7 minutes. Alternatively, you can also cook it in the microwave or use the frozen corn.

2) Drain the vinegar and transfer the jalapenos to a bowl.

3) Grate / chop the cheese. Increase of decrease the cheese quantity as per your personal preference. Arrange the bowls in order to make the stuffing easier while preparing the bread.

For Assembling:

1) After 1 hour, The dough should have raised well. Preheat the oven for 375F/190C for 15 minutes.

2) Punch back the raised dough. Transfer this to a floured surface. Slightly knead it for 3-5 minutes. The outer surface spring back when you touch the dough towards inside.

3) Divide the dough into 3 equal parts.

4) Roll each dough ball into a circular disc with 12-14CM diameter.

5) Spread a tablespoon or more garlic spread to the disc.

6) Spread the chopped or grated cheese first and then place the pickled jalapenos, sweetcorn and then again top it with cheese. Add more cheese if required. Please refer the picture.

7) Fold the dough in half and seal the edges carefully. Make sure not to have any opening, otherwise cheese will come out while baking.

8) Score the dough gently to allow the air go out while baking. Repeat these steps for remaining bread. Cover the prepared bread using cling wrap to avoid it from drying.

9) Brush the top of all the breads with remaining garlic spread. Sprinkle dried oregano.

10) Bake it in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or till the bread becomes golden brown.

11) Remove from the oven and brush again with garlic spread.

12) Slice and Serve hot.


1) Try adding the yeast quantity as per the package suggestion. After checking so many trials, for 1 tablespoon my dough raised well and hence I added 1 tablespoon for 1 and 1/2 cup flour.

2) Change the stuffing as per your preference.

3) You can also add any of your favorite spices and seasoning.
