PULL APART PIZZA BREAD RECIPE

Here is a recent discovery, and while it is quite decadent, it's so good we make a batch on occasion when we want a quick snack instead of a full meal.  I have no idea where the original recipe came from but it's all over the Internet.  In case you have never had it, or seen it, here it is:




These are the ingredients.  Very simple and actually very adaptable if you wanted to play around with the flavors, different cheeses, meats, seasonings, etc.

Begin by cutting up the pizza dough.  It unrolls out flat, I just cut it in no particular way, just into easier to manage pieces.  One step I left out of the photography is rolling them into balls.  You can leave them like this, we have done that, it just makes for a bit denser loaf.



Next, do the same thing with the pepperoni. You want it in small pieces so that it will be distributed more evenly throughout the batch.


Then, just put them all together into a bowl and gently toss.  I use my hands, and with the oil in there, it mixes pretty easily.  Be careful not to smash it together, you want the pieces of dough to just sort of touch, this is how it pulls apart in the end.



Lastly, just put it all in the Bundt pan and that's it, you are ready to bake it.  You can layer if you prefer, a few pieces of dough, some pepperoni, cheese, more dough balls, etc.



Cook in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes, or until the top is golden.  It's kind of hard to judge because you want to make sure the dough is cooked but 30-40 minutes is about right.  







Then you just pull it apart and it's got all sorts of gooey, cheesy, pizza goodness inside.

We like to serve it with a side of warm marinara sauce for dipping.  YUMMY!

Ingredients:

2 cans pizza dough
2 cups shredded cheese (we used a pizza blend)
1 cup grated parmesan
1 seven ounce package pepperoni
1/3 cup olive oil
garlic powder, red chili flakes and black pepper (to taste)

Follow above instructions and enjoy!
