Pull-Apart Pizza Bread
- 2 cans pizza dough
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese
- 2 tablespoons parsley flakes
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
- 1/2 cup basil, freshly shredded (plus extra for garnish)
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 pack mini pepperonis
- 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (plus extra for garnish)
- Pasta sauce (for dipping)
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Cut pizza dough into 1-inch strips and then cut the strips into 2-inch sections.
- Put the olive oil, mozzarella, parsley, Italian seasoning, basil, garlic powder, mini pepperonis, and Parmesan into the mixing bowl.
- Mix all the ingredients and toss so the olive oil is spread evenly on each piece of dough. Then pour into a Bundt pan.
- Bake for 30 minutes, or until the top is brown and the center is thoroughly cooked. Tip: Be sure to check the middle of the pizza bread. If it is still not cooked thoroughly, let it cook for 5 minutes at a time until it’s done.
- Flip over onto a plate while it’s still hot, and garnish with shredded basil and Parmesan cheese. Use pasta sauce for dipping, if desired.
Make it an extra special night by adding a pop of color and bubbles with sparkling cider rimmed with Pop Rocks! Simply dip the glasses into honey, agave, or lime juice, and then into the Pop Rocks for a sweet surprise.
