Omni Plus Garlic Mozzarella Pull-Apart Bread


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 oz instant yeast
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp minced Garlic
  • 2 tbsp finely snipped chives
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 oz low moisture whole milk mozzarella
  • In a large bowl, stir together Dough Mixture ingredients to form a sticky dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead lightly to form a smooth ball. Coat dough ball lightly with oil.
  • Cut parchment paper into an 8” circle. Place the dough ball on the parchment, place parchment on the Cooking Pan, then place the Cooking Pan in the Slow Cook/Proof level.
  • Select PROOF program and adjust the temperature to 90°F and the time to 30 minutes, then press START.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine softened butter, garlic, chives and salt. Mix well and set aside. Cut the mozzarella in thin (<1/4") slices, then cut slices into 1/2" strips.
  • When the program is complete, carefully remove the Cooking Pan. Press the dough into an 8” circle (to match the parchment). 
  • With a sharp knife, score the dough 8 times, turn the dough 90 degrees and score 8 times again to form a crosshatch pattern. Spread the garlic butter evenly over the top. 
  • Carefully insert pieces of mozzarella in each of the scored slots.
  • Select the BAKE program and adjust the temperature to 350°F and the time to 10 minutes, then press START.
  • When the preheat cycle is complete, place the Cooking Pan in the Roast/Bake level. Close the oven to resume program.
  • Bake until cheese is melted and partially browned. Serve warm. Bread will easily pull apart at the scores.
