This Three Cheese Braid is filled with three ooey, gooey cheeses all baked in a homemade pizza dough. Then brushed with melted butter and garlic.
Save it for later and PIN IT
You guys, I can almost make a meal out of this three cheese braid!! I am just warning you because it is super addicting!! All that melty cheese wrapped up in my homemade pizza dough then brushed with melted butter, garlic and parsley. It’s to die for!!!
I have made variations of this throughout the years but I like this one the best. I like the cheddar in this mix because it just gives it a little something. It’s a little like the homemade three cheese pizza because I am using the same trio of cheeses but different because the cheese bakes up gooier. It’s like a perfect package of melted cheesey goodness! Then dip it into some homemade pizza sauce (so quick and easy!) and I promise you will want to make a meal out of this three cheese braid too!
I do realize there were a lot of homemade’s in those last sentences but don’t let that scare you. If you check out those other posts I have a lot of instructions for making them ahead by either keeping it in the refrigerator or freezer. And the pizza sauce only takes 10 minutes to make.
This three cheese braid can also be baked in advance then kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 2 months. If you freeze it just place it in the refrigerator overnight to thaw then briefly warm it in the oven to get the cheese all ooey gooey again. This method isn’t as good as eating it freshly baked but it is still really good and can help save some time which is never a bad thing. My best recommendation for making this ahead and getting it as fresh as possible would be to make the dough and refrigerate it or freeze it as stated in the dough instructions.
This way you can speed things up a little but still have a freshly baked three cheese braid. Also, if you aren’t sure how to braid the dough I have a couple of pictures and a video clip below the recipe that may help and give you a visual. Remember things don’t have to look perfect to taste good!! I like the rustic appearance of things better anyways! 🙂 Hope you enjoy, friends!!
