Little Caesar Italian Cheese Bread Recipe


  • 1 batch Under an Hour White Bread dough
  • 8 tablespoons softened salted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 pound grated mozzarella cheese or muenster cheese (we like a combination of the two)
  • Salt
  • Parsley or Italian Seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Follow recipe instructions for making the Under An Hour White Dough. Allow dough to rise for 30 minutes. Divide dough in half. Roll each dough ball out to fit a 9x13 inch pan. Lightly grease each pan, then set dough inside each pan.
  3. Split butter evenly between the two loaves and spread the butter over the dough until the dough is evenly covered.
  4. Sprinkle 2 garlic cloves, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese and 1/2 pound mozzarella cheese over each loaf. Sprinkle lightly with salt and parsley or Italian seasoning.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes, or until cheese is browned and melted. Remove from oven, serve with marinara dipping sauce.


Feel free to use your favorite gluten free dough if you need to substitute.

  1. This recipe was awesome! This is as close as I want to get to the MSG loaded chain-store version.

  2. I’m only a couple years into working with yeast. Does your recipe call for rapid rise yeast? And what temperature should the water be? Thank you!

    • No, you don’t need rapid rise yeast. Just regular is fine. And the water should be 105=110 degrees. Or very warm to the touch. Hope that helps!
