Who doesn't love a good pizza? Even better, who doesn't love a toasty garlic bread topped with cheese and tomato sauce? The answer is no one! That's why we're sharing our favourite Garlic-Toast Pizzas recipe.
Equipment needed to make garlic toast pizzas.
Our house was usually growing up on Friday night as pizza. We went typically to Daddy Murphy (today remains one of my favourites!) But we had to build our own occasionally, and as a girl, it was SO amazing to me.
The thing wanted for me to make garlic toast pizzas was the following:
- premade pizza dough (I used Trader Joe's)
- one egg, beaten
- cheddar cheese, grated
- olive oil or butter.
- Salt and pepper to taste. I use a lot of both!
- Garlic powder and dried oregano leave if desired. Again, lots of it on mine!
Equipment needed to make garlic toast pizzas: rolling pin; cookie sheet with greaseproof paper; baking tray or oven pan - flour is not necessary to coat before placing in the fridge overnight).
Directions to make the garlic toast pizzas
This last week we tried to get ourselves a bit creative with our garlic bread pizza, and it was a success! This is how we did it: Preheat the Garlic Toast Box oven to the temperature. Every frozen garlic brand works primarily, but we favour Pepperidge Farm, as we have seen above!
- Place the slices of garlic bread on a baking sheet and place them in the oven. (Every brand we tried worked well)
- Cook for about three minutes, or until browned to your liking.
- Remove from oven when done cooking. Add pizza sauce and toppings as desired! Add more cheese if needed too 😉
Tips for making the perfect pizza
My mother, like a youngster, would cook pizza as a treat for us. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy that at the time because my mom was using toppings, such as chicken and peppers, which I hated. With a frozen pizza, I would have been more pleased.

- Add toppings of your choice!
When cooking frozen pizzas, be sure not to overcook so that they don't turn out too crispy. If it's a little soft, take them out when there are about eight minutes left in their cook time. That should make them come out crispier than if you wait until ten minutes are up.* – Tips from Paula Deen (TV personality) *When topping your pie with extra cheese, use shredded mozzarella or parmesan cheese because these cheeses melt better.Print
Summary: This is an excellent recipe for people who want to take their pizza experience up a notch. It's perfect if you're looking for some comfort food but don't have the time or patience to make dough from scratch and wait around while it rises. I hope you'll give these garlic toast pizzas a try soon!
