Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Slice bread into slices 3/4-inch thick then cut each slice into cubes. Spread out bread cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake 5 minutes.
While they are baking, in a mixing bowl, whisk together olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.
Remove baking sheet from the oven and drizzle with garlic oil mixture, toss to combine, then bake 5 minutes.
Remove sheet from the oven and toss, then bake 5 - 6 minutes longer, until golden brown and crisp.
Remove from oven and set aside.
