  • 2 cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp dry yeast
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ cup water approximately
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 3-4 tbsp butter at room temperature
  • 3-4 cloves garlic grated
  • 1 tbsp Italian herbs
  • A few basil leaves roughly chopped (optional)
  • ½ cup mozzarella cheese you may increase or decrease it as per your liking


  • Heat the milk until it is warm. Add yeast and sugar and mix well. Let it sit for 5-6 minutes until it becomes frothy
  • In a large bowl, mix flour and salt together. Add oil and milk-yeast mixture
  • Gradually add water and combine the dough
  • Transfer onto a flat surface and knead it until the dough is soft, smooth and pliable (8-10 minutes)
  • Cover the bowl with a cling wrap and let it rest in a warm place for about 1 hour. The dough will be almost double in size after resting
  • In a small bowl, combine butter, garlic, mixed herbs, and basil leaves
  • Preheat oven at 180℃
  • Once the dough is rested, punch it to remove the trapped air. Knead again for 2-3 minutes
  • Spread the dough onto a baking tray in an oval shape
  • Spread the butter mixture all over it. Top it with mozzarella cheese
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 10-12 minutes
  • Turn the oven to grill mode and bake it for another 2-3 minutes until the top becomes golden and starts to bubble. Keep a close watch at this stage as it tends to burn quickly
  • Take it out of the oven once done, slice and serve
