Clean Eating #89: Cheesy Garlic Rolls & Pizza Bread

Cheesy Garlic Rolls & Pizza Bread

Okay guys, this post is going to be like food porn.  Especially to my husband.

I know if he was here, I wouldn't be able to post the video of his reaction.  Just tasting a sample of the bread dipped in the roasted garlic oil and a few chunks of roasted garlic earlier made him nearly swoon.  Then he grabbed me and gave me an astounding "I've never had anything that awesome in my entire life except you of course" kind of major kissing moment.  Well, perhaps that's too much information.  Anyway, he acted like a teenager.  Again.  It was nice.  I'm thinking he wants bread & garlic more often.  I will have to see what I can do.

Onward!  I pretty much used the bread recipe from the cinnamon rolls the other day, but I replaced the butter with coconut oil and full out eggs with egg whites this time.

  • 1 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, softened
  • 3 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 5 Tbsp Vital Wheat Gluten
  • 2 Tbsp instant yeast
  • 1/2 cup Xylitol
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 egg whites
  • Roasted Garlic
  • Marinara/Pizza Sauce *I boiled down some of my hearty vegetable marinara sauce for ours.
  • Finely Shredded Mozzarella cheese

  1. Mix warm water, yeast and xylitol in a small cup/bowl
  2. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl ****LEAVE OUT TWO CUPS OF FLOUR FOR KNEADING
  3. Add warmed milk and yeast mixture
  4. Mix Thoroughly
  5. Pour the rest of the flour on the table and knead it into the bread
  6. Let Rise lightly covered for an hour or so
  7. When it has doubled in size, take out and form as though you're making cinnamon rolls
Except instead of adding cinnamon & sugar, you add pizza sauce, garlic & cheese

Look at those HOT chunks of garlic in there!  My husband is going to have a COW!  I think I'm going to text him right now and tell him to look at this post just to torment him... because that's just the way I am.
Did I mention that one of the other things my husband loves is CHEESE?
Pizza Bread, fresh out of the oven!
Need I say more?  It was yummy!
