  • 1 C water
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 C all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 C Parmesan cheese
  • 2-3 C whole milk mozzarella cheese shredded


  • Heat water to 115°F, dissolve yeast and sugar. Allow yeast to proof.
  • To the bowl of a stand mixer add flour, salt and garlic powder. With mixer running on low, slowly add yeast mixture. Increase speed and mix until dough forms a ball and pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Transfer to a lightly greased bowl, cover and allow to rise until doubled in size, roughly 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet. Shape dough to desired size and shape.
  • Melt butter with minced garlic. Brush butter and garlic over entire surface of dough. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and mozzarella. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until desired crispness is reached.
  • Slice and serve immediately with optional dipping sauces.


Recipe serves roughly 4-8.
