  • 1 large loaf of crusty bread like sourdough
  • 8-10 oz fresh mozzarella cheese — , cut into small cubes (or regular mozzarella)
  • 3/4 cup pizza sauce or crushed tomatoes with basil

Garlic butter:

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove — , minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
  2. Melt butter, then add olive oil, salt and garlic. Let the garlic sit for 10 minutes, to infuse the butter. You can then strain the mixture and use just the butter, or use it with the garlic. Add parsley.
  3. Cut the bread into diagonal 1 inch diamonds, making sure not to cut though.
  4. Drizzle garlic butter between the cracks. Add just a little of tomato sauce in between each crack. Using your fingers stuff bread with mozzarella cheese.
  5. Wrap bread in foil completely, place it on a coolie sheet and bake for 15 minutes, until cheese is mostly melted. Uncover the top of the bread and bake for 5 more minutes.
