5 cups flour
2 cups water, room temperature
2 tbsp active yeast
3 tbsp sugar
3 tsp salt
½ cup olive oil
10.5 oz butter, melted
1 tbsp garlic, dried
1 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp dried parsley
½ pint heavy cream
½ cup mozzarella, grated
2 tbsp chives, chopped
1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups flour, 2 cups water, 2 tbsp yeast and 3 tbsp sugar. Whisk well and set aside for 10 minutes. This dough is best stored in a warm place and bubbles should form.
3. In a separate bowl, mix together 3 cups flour, 1 tsp salt, and ½ cup olive oil. Pour in ½ of the dough from step one. Knead well with your hands. Pour in the rest of the dough from step one, and mix well again. Knead on the counter and add a small amount of flour if the dough is too sticky.
4. In a third bowl, mix together the melted butter, garlic, parsley, and salt.
5. Create small bite size balls with all of the dough. Then, begin dipping each dough ball in the melted butter mixture and place them into a bundt cake pan.
6. Once each coated ball is in the pan, cover it and allow it to rise for ½ an hour.
7. Bake for 30-40 mins.
8. While the bread is baking, in a small saucepan combine heavy cream, ½ cup grated mozzarella, ½ tbsp salt, and 2 tbsp chives. Simmer until smooth.
9. Once the bread is baked, flip it onto a serving plate and serve the dipping sauce in a bowl in the center of the bread.
