It’s hard to pass up a delicious serving of cheesy garlic bread and this recipe is no different!  This bread is stuffed with mozzarella cheese and topped off with delicious flavors of butter, oregano, garlic, and parsley.

It also has sprinkled mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses on top of the delicious butter baste – if you love cheese, you’ll love this!

Making the Pull-Apart Garlic Bread

Since this pull apart garlic bread recipe uses yeast, it’s important to make sure you’re using it the correct way!  To active the yeast, it needs to be warm in your home.

If it’s not warm enough, the dough will not rise and double as it should.  Personally, my kitchen is rather cool and when I use dry yeast in the cooler months, I place my bowl near my fireplace for warmth.

If you don’t have a fireplace, find a warm spot in your home and let it sit for the hour it takes to rise.

It’s also important to use warm water to activate your yeast.  If you use cold or hot water, it will cause your yeast to die and your bread will not come out right.

Once you get a hang of dealing with dry yeast, it’s not so scary and you will find it’s pretty easy to use!
