  • Total Time: 38 mins
  • Yield: 8 1x


  • 120 g unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tsbp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic, freshly minced
  • 1 tsp sea salt flakes
  • ¼ tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 sourdough loaf (or thick pane di casa)
  • 1.5 cups (150 g) mozzarella cheese, freshly grated


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/250°C fan.
  2. Combine the butter with the parsley, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium-sized bowl. Set aside.
  3. Cut the bread on an angle into diamonds, taking care not to cut all the way through.
  4. Use a spoon to drizzle the butter mixture into all of the crevices and then stuff with the mozzarella cheese. It doesn’t need to be perfectly distributed, the more rustic, the better!
  5. Wrap the bread in a large sheet of foil, place on an oven-safe tray and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover the foil off top of the bread and bake for a further 8 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the top is crispy and golden. Serve for everyone to tear and share!



Cheesy pull-apart garlic bread is perfect for making ahead of time, ready for when you need it! Prepare the loaf as per the recipe, wrap in foil and freeze for up to 2 months. Bake from frozen by adding an additional 20-25 minutes of cooking time or thaw overnight in the fridge and bake as per the recipe.



Cheesy pull-apart garlic bread is best made and eaten immediately, but don’t let those leftovers go to waste! Simply store the leftovers in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave, the crust will remain quite crispy.
