How to make the garlic bread sticks
Peel and crush the garlic, make a paste of it and mix with soft butter and salt. Keep it aside.
Proof the yeast with warm water and sugar. Keep it covered till it froths. You can MW water for 30 secs and add the yeast.
In a bowl, take the yeast and add a cup of flour, 1 tbsp of Olive Oil, knead well. Continue mixing until the flour is all blended in, then cover and let rise until doubled.
Now that you have a sponge, add another 1/2 cup flour, salt to taste. Knead for around 5 minutes until you have a smooth dough. It will still be very wet. Let it rise again until doubled.
Dust and roll out again to get a disc. Spread the garlic spread over it, making sure to cover only the center part. Then sprinkle the grated cheeses. Bring the top form over, towards you to cover the lower part.
Seal the sides well and place on a well greased baking tray.
Brush 1 tbsp olive oil on top and sprinkle Domino's seasoning or oregano all over the top. Cut into strips with a pizza cutter and bake at 185 C, until browned on top, about 15 minutes.
Remove and again again brush with 2 tbsp Olive oil all over the bread and bake it again for 5 mins.
The top looks almost golden with a crust.
My first rise was almost an hour as the climate was little chill.
I almost used up 5 -6 tbs of Olive Oil over the top. You can skip the cheese in the center.
Be liberal with the oregano, this really gives the taste.
