In a stand mixing bowl, add the water, yeast, and honey. Mix with a spoon to combine then let it sit for 5 minutes until foamy.
2 ¼ teaspoon active dry yeast, 1 cup warm water, 1 tablespoon honey
Add the flour, salt, olive oil, and parmesan cheese to the bowl. Use the dough hook attachment to knead the dough on low speed for 8-9 minutes or until the dough is soft, smooth and elastic.
2 ¾ cup all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, ½ cup parmesan cheese, packed
Shape the dough into a ball and place it in a lightly oiled large bowl. Cover the bowl with a clean towel or plastic wrap and place it in a warm spot to rise until doubled in size, about 20-30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400 F/204 C. Prepare a half baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Lightly press down the dough in the bowl to remove some of the air. Then transfer it to your counter or surface. Press the dough down into a square.
Using a sharp knife or bench scraper, cut the dough into 9, 1 inch wide strips. Separate each strip to keep them from sticking together. After sitting for a few minutes the strips will form a skin and be less sticky.
Using the knife or bench scraper, cut each strip into 1 inch pieces that resemble gnocchi.
Transfer the pieces to the prepared baking pan in an even layer. The pieces will be snug in the pan.
Sprinkle the fresh herbs, parmesan, and mozzarella over the top of the bread. Cover the pan with plastic wrap or a clean towel and set it aside to rise again for 10 minutes.
⅛ cup fresh thyme, chopped, ⅛ cup fresh sage, chopped, ½ cup parmesan cheese, ¼ cup mozzarella cheese
While the dough is rising, make the garlic butter.
In a small pot or pan, add the minced garlic and butter over medium low heat.
3 tablespoon unsalted butter, 4 garlic cloves, minced
Let the butter melt for 5 minutes, or until the garlic is sizzling and is fragrant. Turn the heat off but keep the pan on the stove to keep the butter melted.
Unwrap the pan and use a pastry brush to brush the butter over the tops of the bites, then sprinkle the remaining garlic pieces evenly over the top of the bread.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the tops are just barely starting to turn golden brown.
Remove the tray from the oven and serve immediately as is or with a side of marinara for dipping.
