    Hi,
    I am new to baking too!! I baked yesterday, Domino's style garlic bread!! It came out soooo well I did not get time enough to click a pic before everyone devoured it all!! Bread was soft and puffy and thin crisp crust was awesome!!
    U ppl must try it too!
    Here s the recipe for all ILs! Link also provided!
    Garlic Breadsticks
    Recipe slightly adapted from Bombay Foodie

    Ingredients

    Water - 1/2 cup
    Instant Dry Yeast - 1/2 tsp
    Sugar - 1/2 tsp
    Flour - 1 1/2 cups,divided
    Olive oil - 2 tbsp,divided
    Salt to taste
    Garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
    Italian seasoning/Oregano - 1 tbsp
    Amul cheese cube - 1,grated

    Method

    In a mixing bowl,add water,yeast and sugar and keep aside for 5-10 minutes or until the yeast bubbles up.Garlic Breadsticks-step1
    Mix in 1 cup of flour,1 tbsp olive oil and mix in until the flour is blended in.Cover and let it rise until it doubles-about 45 minutes to an hour.Garlic Breadsticks-step2
    To the doubled sponge,mix in the rest of the flour,salt to taste and garlic paste and again mix until the flour is blended in.Garlic Breadsticks-step3
    Now knead the flour for about 5-10 minutes or until the dough becomes smooth.Let it rise for another hour or so until it doubles.Garlic Breadsticks-step4
    Smear a baking sheet with olive oil and preheat the oven to 200C.
    Flour your counter top and roll the dough to a rough elongated circle.Top with the grated cheese and fold the dough to resemble a semi circle shape.Garlic Breadsticks-step5
    Transfer it to the baking sheet and smear the rest of the olive oil on top and top with the seasoning/oregano.Garlic Breadsticks-step6
    Cut into strips using a pizza cutter and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the bread is golden brown on top.

    Notes
    The original recipe calls for Garlic powder which I didn't have,so I used Garlic paste.
    The bread doesn't brown much,so go by your instinct with regard to the baking time.It took exactly 14 minutes in my oven.
