Happy Friday! I’ve found my new calling in life. Pull-apart bread. Seriously this stuff is amazing and this bread can be made either savory or sweet. I like how this “bread” uses canned biscuits for the bread dough part. You can pretty much do anything with biscuit dough these days. You simply just take a biscuit, cut in half (horizontally), and make like you would a pizza. Spread the sauce, cheese, and pepperoni on top. Isn’t that easy? I made a spice oil to put on top and sprinkled some parmesan cheese over the bread. This looks super fancy and your guests will be impressed.
I like how you can see each layer of the bread and it’s fun to pull it apart. Kids would like making this too, and eating it of course.
Pizza Pull-Apart Bread
- 1/2 batch pizza dough, homemade or store-bought
- 1/2 cup pizza sauce
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup sliced pepperoni
- Additional toppings of your choice
- On a floured surface, roll your pizza dough out into a large rectangle. Top with sauce, cheese and pepperoni. Using a pizza cutter or a very sharp knife, cut the dough into long strips, then into squares, so you end up with about 20 squares. Stack the squares onto of each other, and stack into a greased loaf pan. (For pictures of this technique, check out how I did it with this cinnamon pull-apart bread). Cover the pan with plastic wrap and allow to raise for 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Baked for 20-25 minutes until the top is golden brown. Allow to pizza to rest for 10 minutes before turning onto a serving platter. Serve with additional pizza sauce, if desired.
