Cheesy Garlic Pizza Breads

Bradley my son absolutely loves pizzas, it’s his favourite food, my other kids like pizza as well but they all love garlic bread so this recipe always goes down a storm!

The bread base recipe that I use for this recipe is also the recipe I use when I make pizzas with the kids, if I have a day off on a Friday quite often I will prepare bases for the kids to create their own pizzas, then for dessert, we make a sweet pizza!

I also use this bread recipe make pizza bases which I part bake then top with tomato sauce, cheese and toppings, freeze them, making homemade cook from frozen pizzas. Obviously, I don’t only have homemade frozen pizzas, I quite often buy store bought frozen pizzas but homemade does taste much better.

When I do buy frozen pizza I usually buy margarita pizza so I can add different toppings for Alan & I versus toppings for the kids.
