Juicy, tasty and quick to prepare: Our garlic sticks are ready in the oven in just 15 minutes. How we like it!

Today we head to Canada for culinary delights. It was there that we came across a delicacy called “Garlic Fingers”. Easy to make, these delicious dipping garlic sticks are a real hit and are ideal as a finger food, snack or salad accompaniment.

Ingredients for about 12 bars:

  • 1 pizza dough, cooling rack
  • 125 g pork cubes
  • 100 grams of butter
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 250 g grated mozzarella
  • For the doner dip:
  • 200 g of condensed milk, sweetened
  • 45 grams of vinegar
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper

Preparation time:

  • 15 minutes (plus 15 minutes of cooking time)

And this is how it is done:


  1. First, remove the dough from the packaging and spread it on a baking sheet covered with baking paper. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees fan/fan (200 degrees convection).
  2. Place the bacon cubes in the pan and fry until the bacon is slightly crispy. Remove the bacon from the pan and drain on kitchen paper.
  3. Add the butter to the remaining lard in the pan and allow to melt. Peel the garlic, finely chop it and then stir it into the liquid oil mixture. Fry for a minute, then remove from heat.
  4. Grease the pizza dough with garlic oil and spread the bacon cubes on it. Sprinkle the grated mozzarella on top and place in the oven. Bake for twelve to 15 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, the dip can be mixed. Simply mix sweetened condensed milk with vinegar and garlic powder and add some salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Cut the baked dough into long, thin strips, then serve with the dip. It’s over!


Our quick garlic sticks are a true Canadian classic, you’ll find them on countless menus as “garlic fingers”. They are usually served with either marinara sauce or, in our case, donair sauce. Isn’t it? Is something ringing your bell? For some reason, the word Donair brings to mind kebab – and in fact Donair dip is believed to be the Canadian version of kebab sauce. Well, I learned something again!
