Tomato Garlic Bread in Ten Minutes

“Yeah, I think garlic bread would have to be my favourite all-time food. I could eat it for every meal. Or just constantly, without stopping.” ~ Scott Pilgrim v. The World

For want of anything better to do at four in the morning I decided to have a go at making my own tomato garlic bread. Because I love tomato garlic bread and yet they don’t sell it in any of the shops near my house. It turned out surprisingly well.


  • a packet of mini tortillas
  • a carton of passata
  • a bulb of garlic
  • some fresh, chopped basil


Step 1. Spread some passata over the tortilla leaving a little gap around the edges – I used about a dozen teaspoons full on each but it really depends on how tomatoey you want to your bread to be.

Step 2. Crush a clove of garlic and spread that on to the torilla as well. I originally tried making them with a teaspoon of garlic salt, that worked just fine but the garlic taste was VERY strong, I prefer the ones I made with actual garlic.

Step 3. Spread a teaspoon full of chopped basil over each tortilla. Or more, or less, or none at all – depending on how much you like basil.

Step 4. Bake in an oven pre-heated to 200C for about five minutes.

Step 5. Leave to cool for long enough that they don’t incinerate your tongue and the roof of your mouth before eating.

  1. This looks incredibly easy! I loooooove garlic bread, but I’m not sure if I’ve ever had tomato garlic bread. I do love tomatoes though so this looks like a great way of jazzing up the usual garlic bread!


    1. It’s ridiculously easy. They do amazing tomato garlic bread at the Italian restaurant round the corner from my house it’s like garlic bread except even better. So I thought I ought to work out how to make my own.


  2. yummy! you can’t beat homemade garlic bread. I must admit ive never made it with tomato, but i will be trying this at the weekend.
    have you ever done completely homemade pizzas? So much better than the shop ones (yes even dominos!) and if you have a breadmaker then making the dough is simple too 🙂


    1. See, I’m allergic to cheese. So I’m supposed to avoid it. I can’t resist dominos pizza some times but I don’t try to make anything cheese based myself.
      Although, having said that I went to Pizza Express for someone’s birthday the other week and they put me a pizza topping on a tomato garlic bread instead of a pizza base. I could try that I suppose.
