Have you ever wondered what would happen if you combined two of your favorite comfort foods – garlic bread and pizza?

If you’re like most food fanatics, nothing hits the spot quite like a slice of cheesy, garlicky goodness. The combination of the two classic dishes gives a unique take on the classic Italian dish. Nowadays garlic bread is a must-have side dish for pizza night, but what if you could have it all in one delicious bite?

This was inspired by my Ground Beef Pizza on this site, and pairs well with this Garlic Flatbread.

Hint: If you want to get your cheese extra golden brown, turn on the broiler for your oven and put it under that for a few minutes. Make sure to watch it carefully as it will burn quickly.

Substitutions

Equipment

You can’t beat a good baking sheet when you are baking in the oven. My new favorites are my Nordic Ware. They aren’t in the photos, but I recently updated all of my baking sheets.

Storage

If you have any leftovers, place them in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge. It will last 2 to 3 days.

You can freeze it, however, keep it mind the freezer may change the texture of the cheese and bread.

💭 Top tip

Keep an eye on the pizza while it’s in the oven. Since all ovens are different, you don’t want to burn the bread or overbake the cheese.

Notes

Pizza sauce 
When adding your pizza sauce, keep in mind that the bread will absorb some of the sauce so add more than you think you need so that you can actually see and taste the sauce once it’s done. 
Bread
If you would rather not do the garlic bread, feel free to sub a French bread loaf or a loaf of Italian bread.
