Super Easy Garlic Pull Apart Bread

Sometimes, there is nothing better to me than a warm piece of garlic bread dipped in my favorite pizza or pasta sauce. Forget the pasta and meatballs – give me the garlicky dough and I will make a meal out of it! I also like easy.

Don’t get me wrong, I often spend hours, or even the better part of the day, cooking, but I welcome a break once in awhile. A loaf of frozen bread dough in the freezer is often a great shortcut to yumminess and this super easy garlic pull apart loaf is a perfect example. Kids love getting involved in making this, and everyone in the family loves eating it.
