“Who doesn't love Garlic and Beer! This easy-to-make bread recipe uses the carbonation in the beer to make the bread rise. The loaf is dense and tasty. Baked into the bread is the granulated garlic and cheese to give it a great flavor and keep it moist while cooking in the outdoor Pizza Oven.”
1hr 10mins
1 Loaf

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated garlic
  • 1 12 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (16 ounce) bottle Guinness stout
  • 3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter


  1. Preheat the Troops BBQ Pizza Oven to 400 degrees F with the pizza stone in the oven and a cooling rack on the pizza stone.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
  3. After combining the dry ingredients, stir in the shredded cheese.
  4. When Pizza Oven is at 400 degrees, add beer all at once, mixing as little as possible. Batter should be lumpy.
  5. Transfer batter into a non-stick 9x5x3 inch loaf pan and brush the top with the melted butter.
  6. Bake in the oven for 45-60 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. The bread pan should be placed on top of the cooling rack sitting on the pizza stone. This will allow the heat to circulate completely around the bread pan.
  7. It will take about 30 minutes for the charcoal to heat the Troops BBQ Pizza Oven to 400 degrees F. Plan this into the time it takes to make the recipe. While the recipe will also work in a conventional oven, you won't have the same smoke flavor that the pizza oven gives you. Add beer right before you place the pan in the oven.
