I do love the flavor of the herb 'Thyme', like to add the thyme in most of my recipes, with chicken, Rotis, and in any side dishes, when I need a strong flavor. The combo of garlic and thyme mesmerizes everybody, especially in this garlic herb, pull apart bread.
So I decided to go for thyme with garlic for the pull apart bread. It started bombing the entire house with the garlic flavor, early from its backing session.
I had the yeast to make pizza crust, which doesn't require a resting period. I just went with the directions in yeast envelope.
It requires just beat and knead the flour and that's it....no resting time, waiting time...just bake it immediately after preparing the dough. It came out well. And everyone in my family is happy with the final product.
Making pull apart bread with the pizza dough is much more easy and convenient. If you store-bought pizza dough, you are more welcome to use it. But, I went with this fast n easy pizza crust yeast. But we can also go with regular yeast and with the regular process of making this Garlic Pull Apart Rolls.
