So, I had this idea the other night: That I could take my tried and true soft pretzel dough recipe and turn it into a pull apart bread, layered with garlic and herb butter, goat cheese, and sun-dried tomato. Well, I did it and guess what. It turned out even better than I could have imagined! I mean, just look at those layers and that wild, crazy top! So much fun and so delicious.
Like all yeast doughs, this takes a bit of time and planning
BUT - it is not difficult. The dough for this pull apart bread whips up in minutes, takes about an hour for the first rise, then we roll it out, fill it, slice, and stack. Then into the pan for a final rise before we bake it. Just give yourself plenty of time, read through the whole recipe before starting, and enjoy the process. I guarantee you will enjoy the final product!
Make this pull apart bread your own
If you aren't a fan of goat cheese, use cream cheese, feta, or boursin, or sprinkle in some shredded cheese. You really can have fun here and mix and match flavors that you love. Don't love basil? Use a different herb! Like I always tell you, let your imagination run wild! These are some of my favorite flavors and I think they all go so well together.
I should also mention, this same dough would make THE BEST sweet pull apart bread too. Cinnamon sugar, cream cheese and jam... I'm already dreaming up some ideas. Stay tuned.
