Pizza Monkey Bread

Pizza Monkey Bread has all the flavor of pizza in a fun, pull-apart bread form. It’s layered with pizza sauce, lots of mini pepperoni slices, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese. Dip the pieces in pizza sauce for even more flavor.

You’ll need a Bundt pan for this recipe and you’ll want to spray it well with nonstick cooking spray. I don’t have one, but a cast iron Bundt pan would be perfect for getting a crispy crust.

Biscuit Dough or Pizza Crust

I’ve used a tube of refrigerated biscuit dough and a tube of refrigerated pizza crust. Mainly because I couldn’t decide which one to use. You could use 2 tubes of biscuits or 2 of pizza dough, but I like the way one of each tasted together.

How To Make Pizza Monkey Bread

The biscuits are cut into quarters and the pizza dough into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Then they are coated in a mixture of olive oil, melted butter, garlic, red pepper flakes, dried onion flakes, and Italian seasoning for lots of added flavor.

Once out of the oven, you want the Pizza Monkey Bread to cool it slightly in the pan, about 10 minutes, but not too long or it will start to stick. If you’ve greased the pan well and you run a knife around the edges before inverting the pan, you shouldn’t have any trouble getting it out in one piece.

If you do, blame your pan. That’s what I do.

    Great recipe for a get together, easy, quick and delicious. I always add a little more of everything, except the pizza dough. It makes it gooeyer, but we like it that way.

      It won’t be as goood if you make it a day or so in advance and you would need to store it in the refrigerator.

    2. Easy and great tasting. I had to add 12 mins. to the cooking time. I am so thrilled. My Christmas party was a success.

  2. I live in a country where I can’t get the refrigerated doughs. Can anyone recommend a dough from scratch recipe to modify this recipe? Unfortunately for me everything has to be made from scratch in my world.

  3. Seems like I never leave here without a growling stomach. This is such a good idea! Looks so tasty, and something everyone will love!
