I’m talking about food, or rather a picture of food. Whether it’s one you spotted in a magazine, on the Google/Pinterst, or even a mental image your formed when skimming over a new recipe. An image of something you just have to have. Stat. Something you want for breakfast, lunch, and dinner?
Nobody? Aww, come on ! Don’t be shy, you know it’s happened to you too. At least here you’re in good, non-judgey foodie company 😉
That was pretty much me at my desk, ogling this bread on my computer screen. Pretty sure one of the sons had to help pick my jaw up off the floor for me. I mean, we’re no strangers to the wide world of beer bread, but this? It was evolutionary. And I could just picture the flavor blending and melting into my mouth with each buttered bite.
Just a heads-up, this recipe yields one loaf. You may want to opt for a double batch, ya know, if you live with anyone who has even the slightest fondness for bread, and carbs. Wars were waged over this loaf. You’d have thought I’d baked a brick of gold or something.
Black Pepper Parmesan Beer Bread
A simple bread with no rise time, this one gets it's fluff from a yeasty beer and is flavored with freshly cracked black pepper and tangy shredded Parmesan cheese.
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time1 hr 10 mins
Total Time1 hr 20 mins
- 3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 2 1/2 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 14 oz of your favorite beer you can opt for a nice flavorful one or stick with something more generic like a Coors Light (there are no right or wrongs here)
- 1/2 cup butter divided and melted
- 3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 1 1/2 -2 tbsp freshly cracked black pepper
Place flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl and use a fork to evenly stir together.
Create a small well in the center of the flour mixture and add in the beer (pour slowly), 1/4 cup of the melted butter, cheese, and black pepper. Stir them all until the dough just comes together. Do not over mix! (small flour pockets can be gently stirred away; one or two remaining flour pockets are okay).
Transfer the batter into a prepared (lightly greased) loaf pan. Pour the other quarter cup of melted butter over top the batter and bake at 375 degrees for about 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the loaf.
Remove the bread from the oven and let rest for about 5 minutes. Carefully remove the loaf from the pan to a wire rack and allow it to cool until just warm to the touch (about 1 hour and 30 minutes), before slicing.
Slice and serve as is, or with generous pats of butter (just sayin!)

Bacon Cheddar Beer Bread
Little Caesar’s $5 hot and ready pizzas have saved my butt at dinner time on more than one occasion. Still I think it’s safe to say that they’re crazy bread is pretty much always the star of their show.
Soft and slightly chewy, brushed with garlic butter and sprinkled with a heavy-handed amount of Parmesan cheese. They’re pretty much the best version of a bread stick. Arguably, ever.
I’ve never been good at the whole delayed gratification thing, and even though the closest Little Caesar’s to us is only about 10 miles away, when a craving hits that’s just too far. And that’s one of the reasons I love this make-at-home copycat version so much.
Craving satisfied 🙂
For big and little people alike.
Copy Cat Little Caesar’s Crazy Bread
1 can of refrigerated pizza dough, or one batch of Easy Homemade Pizza Dough
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/8-1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1. Roll out your pizza dough onto a clean surface, into a roughly rectangular shape (doesn’t have to be perfect or exact).
2. Cut dough in half lengthwise, and then cut 8 strips vertically (making 16 small bread sticks). Place each strip onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown.
3. While the bread sticks are baking, melt the butter and stir in the garlic salt. Remove the cooked bread sticks from the oven and brush on the garlic butter mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve warm with marinara sauce for dipping.
