This Garlic & Sundried Tomato White Pizza Hasselback Party Bread is slightly reminiscent of Texas toast, just jazzed up, taken to the next level, and with a cheesy white pizza flair. Crusty on the outside, soft and tender on the inside; this pull apart party loaf is exactly how bread should taste!

  3. In a separate mixing bowl combine sundried tomatoes, ricotta cheese, scallions, basil, and remaining mozzarella, provolone and parmesan cheese. Mix well and set aside.
  4. Slice straight down into bread, stopping just before cutting all the way through, making about ½’’ thick slices. Repeat with all the loaves to form hasselback bread.
  5. Place each loaf onto an individual sheet of aluminum foil, sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, large enough to enclose the loaf. Set aside
  6. In a small mixing bowl combine the melted butter, garlic, parmesan seasoning, dried oregano and crushed red pepper. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well.
  7. Use a pastry brush or a spoon to apply butter mixture to top of bread and inside of slices.
