  1. For the tomato sauce mixture:

    Add the tomato sauce, parmesan, parsley, roasted pine nuts, onion flakes, garlic, and chili flakes to a blender. Season with salt and pepper and blend.

  2. Assemble the bread:

    Portion the dough into smaller 1-2 ounce pieces, flatten them, add 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce mixture and 1 cube of mozzarella to each one, then wrap and form balls. We’ve got 18 of them. Place them into a baking pan or a Bundt cake form.

  3. Add the melted butter, crushed garlic, and chopped parsley together to a smaller bowl and mix them.
