A pizza isn't complete without garlic bread on the side and a wicked one I've found is this Garlic Ciabatta from Tesco. It's £1.10 for a 260g ciabatta and for that you get about 8 slices and the 2 ends. That's perfect for when I have it because none of us in our house have a lot of garlic bread so it's nice for a taster and a couple of slices each with the pizza.
It takes about 10 mins to cook in the oven and as soon as you put it in it starts smelling quite strong of garlic. There are herbs mixed in the garlic butter but the main smell is deffo garlic.
The crust of the ciabatta goes lovely and crunchy, it's quite dry on the edges but that's wicked because it brings out the gorgeous sloppy garlic butter perfect! lol There's quite a bit of garlic butter on each slice and that gives it a bit of a greasy feel but that doesn't matter because it's delish and if you're eating garlic bread at all you've got to expect it to be a bit greasy!
I love how buttery this garlic bread is because it's a smooth garlic that goes proper nice with the heavy texture of the ciabatta. I get bored of garlic baguettes and think this is a yummy change. Some people might think the garlic is a bit strong because it deffo hits you more than on other garlic bread but like I said it's smooth at the same time so it doesn't feel harsh or over done.
The slices of bread are wicked, they're crunchy on the outside and dead soft inside, the garlic butter makes the bread feel even softer as well and it's weird because even though the garlic is strong you can still taste the olive oil in the bread.
They are on special offer quite often and at the minute you can buy 2 for £2.00, that's not saving much but they do have better offers on these sometimes and they freeze good as well so it's worth buying a few if you see a good offer.
Recommended... a delish change from garlic bread!!!
