Healthier Garlic Bread

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by Ducky

We love garlic bread but hate filling up on all the bread. So when I saw this made on food tv, I had to try it. It is easy and does satisfy our garlic bread cravings without all the bread. I didn't have any garlic cloves so used garlic powder instead. Adjust the seasonings to your own taste.

Wish I could say that we liked this just as much as regular garlic bread, but we thought it was just okay and I found preparing the pita without destroying it to be kind of a challenge. This bread is crisp with a very subtle garlic flavor. I probably would have liked it better if I hadn't been thinking "garlic bread", but as it was, this actually made me crave fresh garlicky, buttery garlic bread more than satisfy any craving. Thanks anyway.
