Cheese Salsa Baskets

Very similar to the Tuiles we made in a previous recipe, these little cheese and salsa baskets are great to serve as a starter or side dish and are wonderful with a summer salad.

Everyone loves to have garlic bread with their pizza, or something to dip in their tomato soup. This alternative is quick and easy to make, using ready made sourdough.

A gooey cheesy alternative to garlic bread.
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Course Savoury
Servings 8


  • 400 g Ready-made Pizza Dough (sourdough)
  • 2 tbsp Crushed Garlic
  • 1 tsp Mixed Herbs
  • 50 g Butter (softened)
  • 100 g Grated Mozzerella Cheese
  • ½ tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • Flour (to dust work surface)


  • Preheat oven 200°C.
  • In a bowl mix together the butter, garlic and mixed herbs, to create our
    garlic butter.
  • Make sure the pizza dough is at room temperature.
  • Flour your suface and roll out the the dough into a circle (thickness should
    be approx 5 mm).
  • Spread 2-3 tbsp of the garlic butter on the dough evenly, keeping away
    from the sides so that it becomes easy to seal.
  • Cover half of the dough with the grated mozzarella and sprinkle the
    cayenne pepper over the top.
  • Fold the dough in half, covering the cheese. Go around the edge pressing
    down, to make sure it is sealed (you don’t want the cheese to ooze out and
    make your oven mess).
  • Line an oven tray with baking paper and place you dough on it.
  • Brush the rest of the garlic butter over the top of the dough.
  • Using a knife score marks for the breadsticks (do not cut fully, the marks
    will help channel stream as well as make it easy to cut out the sticks later)
  • Bake in the oven for 15-20mins, until golden.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before cutting (I use
    a pizza cutter for this)


Tip: Try serving with a sour cream or sweet chilli dip.

Cheese Tuiles

Cheese Tuiles

Traditionally, tuiles are thin, crisp almond cookies that are gently molded over a rolling pin while they are still warm. Once set, their shape resembles the curved French roofing tiles for which they’re named. Here I have created a savoury alternative to that traditional sweet
