Cooking with Kelly: Carbalicious Garlic Bread

Before the Fort2Base Race, my lovely friends came over to my house to a pre-race carb fest. The race had a 10 nautical mile portion and a 3 nautical mile portion, and three of my friends from college ran the slightly more than 5K distance. We carbed up with whole-wheat pasta topped with turkey spaghetti sauce. My friend Rachael brought an amazing salad and I served everything alongside this awesome garlic bread, which happened to be really easy.

Whole Wheat Garlic Bread

1 stick of butter, softened

3 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

1/2 Tablespoon garlic salt

1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning (crush it before adding to release the oils)

1/4 teaspoon paprika

Dash of ground pepper

Roll out the pizza dough into a rectangle, stretching the dough to fit into a baking sheet. Cover with a damp towel and allow to rest for one hour.

Meanwhile, mix the remaining ingredients and preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Brush the bread with the butter mixture and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and brush with the butter again, then slice and serve alongside the extra butter and marinara sauce.
