Tips for making addictive cheesy pull apart bread

  • Use the best Bread – The best bread to use when making Garlic pull apart bread is crusty sourdough or any other dense type of bread, but then it works just as well with plain crusty bread as well.

The reason it works better with sourdough is that sourdough bread is denser, so the bread holds together better when you pull bits off. But even if you use any other type of bread, there is no compromise on flavor! 

  • And top-quality Cheese – Using mozzarella cheese is best for this cheesy garlic pull apart bread, as you want it to stretch and pull when you tear the pieces off.

Use additional flavorings – Ideally, keep the flavors quite simple, going for just garlic bread with cheese, but then you can go wild with the flavors for this! A kick of chili? Check. Herbs? Check. Ranch dressing? Check. – the possibilities are endless!

Print Recipe



  • 1 crusty bread loaf, ideally sourdough
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese (or any other melting cheese)


  • 100gm/1 stick (8 tbsp) softened unsalted butter
  • 2 large, minced garlic cloves
  • ¾ tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley


  • Preheat your oven to 350˚F (180˚C).
  • Combine garlic, salt, and butter in a heatproof bowl and melt this mixture in the microwave. Stir in the parsley.
  • Cut the sourdough bread into diagonal/diamond pieces, but do not cut through the bread.
  • Using a knife (even your fingers are enough), gently pry open each crack and drizzle in a teaspoon of butter and pour in a pinch of cheese. This may initially sound like some effort, but it is worth it! And you don't need to be ultra-neat either; it's good to have some butter drizzled over the crust!
  • Brush the surface of the loaf with the remaining butter. 
  • Wrap the loaves with foil and bake for around 20 minutes until the cheese has almost melted.
  • Unwrap and bake for 5 - 10 minutes more till the bread becomes nice and crusty.
  • Serve immediately.

And finally, when it comes out of the oven, your cheesy pull aparts are golden, crusty, and buttery on the inside and that’s just the start of the eating experience that’s about to commence….

….and then the devouring begins… that cheesy pull! That garlicky, buttery bread!! 

The best part? There’s even more to come!!
