Mix yeast and sugar with warm water and set this aside for 5 mins.let it foam up.

Just before putting in oven, brush it with the garlic herb butter and sprinkle cheese over it.

Now place this in the preheated oven and bake for 20 to 30 mins

Take it out and apply some butter over the top,so that it looks glossy and shiny.
