  • Author: Jenn (Mother Thyme)
  • Total Time: 28 minutes


‘Tis the season for this festive Cheesy Garlic Christmas Tree Bread. Serve this with a side of marinara for dipping! 


1 tube Pillsbury pizza crust
4-5 mozzarella cheese sticks
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
Marinara sauce for dipping


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and line it with parchment paper.

Roll out pizza dough and cut into 28 squares

Cut mozzarella cheese sticks into 1/2-inch pieces

Wrap dough around mozzarella and place seam side down on baking sheet. 

Start at the bottom of the tree with a row of six, followed by a row of 5, then a row of 4, and so on until you get to the top. Keep them snug together so they bake together.

Once it’s done, bake on center rack for 12-18 minutes. 

While the bread is baking, mix together melted butter with garlic powder and parsley flakes.

Once bread is done, brush buttery garlic mix and garish with lots of shredded parmesan cheese on top.

Serve immediately with a side of marinara for dipping.
