The interesting part in Perfect Gooey Mozzarella Garlic Bread is the use of fresh pav buns instead of normal bread. This is the best easy cheesy garlic bread. It is topped with lots of cheese and baked until it becomes gooey, bubbly-hot and golden. This is the perfect side to round out any pasta or Italian meal and it is also good with soups and stews, or all on its own. These can also be served as a starter snack for gatherings or parties. This recipe has been inspired from a French restaurant.
