Preheat the oven to 450F degrees.
Using a microplane or fine grater, grate garlic into olive oil.
Mix until well combined and set aside.
Lightly brush a cookie tray or baking sheet with plain olive oil (not garlic oil).
Carefully remove the risen dough from the mixing bowl and place on the cookie sheet. Using your hands, gently press the dough into an even layer about ½" thick.
Brush the dough with ½ of the garlic oil.
Evenly sprinkle with parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes (if using). Gently press cheese and seasonings into the dough with your hands.
Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, horizontally cut the dough into 1-inch strips.
Then vertically cut dough into 1-inch pieces.
Bake on the center rack for 10 minutes. Rotate 180 degrees and bake another 5-7 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and immediately brush with bread bites with the remaining ½ of the garlic oil.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Slice bread bites again with a knife or pizza cutter. They are ready to serve and eat!
