Easy Pull Apart Pizza Bread (Our Favorite Recipe)


Easy Pull Apart Pizza Bread

I’m always looking for fast and easy recipes and this one definitely fits the bill!  Try this Easy Pull Apart Pizza Bread recipe!

It goes nicely with a side of pizza sauce as a dip too!  Get creative with the dips.  You can use ranch, blue cheese or any of your favorite pizza, pasta or marinara sauces!

I used my favorite bundt pan to make this one.  Be sure to spray it with a non stick cooking spray and beware that the cheese does stick to the edges of the pan.  I used a knife to separate the bread before I flipped the bread onto a plate and it worked out just fine.  I think my non stick Bundt pan really helped though.

TIP:  This is one of the best Italian Seasonings I’ve ever tasted: McCormick Italian Seasoning

Isn’t this stuff amazing. My whole family loved it. Jen originally made it in a bundt pan, but since I don’t have one I tried it in a regular old Pyrex 9×13 (just like this one here) and it came out great.

Easy Pull Apart Pizza Bread recipe that takes hardly no time to throw together.
  • 2 Cans of Pizza Dough or Biscuits
  • 2 cups Mozzarella cheese (or your favorite cheese)
  • 2 tablespoons of a really good Italian seasoning (link in post) or parsley flakes
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 1 – 8 oz package of pepperoni (we used the turkey)
  • 1 cup Parmesean cheese
  • Optional: Add a ½ teaspoon of fresh garlic or garlic powder (it’s amazing)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cut pizza dough or biscuits into quarters (as shown in the photo)
  3. Cut the pepperoni into smaller pieces
  4. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and toss so that the oil is spread evenly on each piece of dough
  5. Bake for about 30 minutes (or until the top is brown and the center is thoroughly cooked) TIP: Be sure to check it in the middle before you pull it out. If the middle is still not cooked thoroughly be sure to leave it in another 5 minutes at a time until it’s done.
  6. Flip over on to a plate while it’s still hot.
  7. Serve with a side sauce and enjoy!

    would love to see more of the recipes that you have to offer. Thank you so much. Will try this tomorrow.

        • SS says

          I have seen a couple versions of this recipe…All others use 2 (16 ounce) pkgs of dough for a total of 32 ounces…This version has 2 (8 ounce) packages total 16 ounces. Is there a typo for the dough? Is this why some had too greasy of a result? Looks yummy planning to make tonight for friends.

        • Cheryllynn Bunn says

          I’ve made this with everything you find on a Deluxe pizza and then somebetween every layer of dough.. I brushed pizza sauce… once all the dough is in the pan top it off with a coat of pizza sauce and top it with the remaining topping and cheese… cover with foil and bake… Oh my YUM!

    • Jennifer says

      I have not tried this. It only takes me about 5 minutes to through everything together. I would be a bit worried that the dough would stick together if it sat in the fridge overnight. I’m not sure though. If you decide to try it, please let me know.

  2. Mary says

    Really liked the taste of this but the edges got really tough and it stuck to the pan something fierce. I oiled the sides before cooking. Any tips to keep this from happening again?

      • Nikole says

        I use “Bakers Joy” non stick spray. I have some of the best Nordic ware pans and before I found out about Bakers Joy I had a time with my cakes sticking something terrible. This stuff is the best thing since sliced bread!!

  3. Tracy Quinlan says

    i just tried this yesterday and the dough was raw, is there something I can do to make it cook inside? I did use turkey sausage, could that have done it? Need suggestions because what was cooked tasted great!

    • Jennifer says

      You may have to cook it longer than I did. Each oven could be a little different. If you notice the top part starts to brown before it’s done in the middle, be sure to cover it with tin foil so it won’t burn.

  4. Lori says

    Yummy… made this recipe with home made biscuits. Didn’t have the pre made biscuits. Little more time to make them..no worries my boys had fun making them.

  5. Kristi says

    Tried this for New Year’s Eve and was bummed because I used biscuits instead of the pizza dough. Took forever for the middle to cook and ended up burning the outside layer. I plan to try again with the pizza dough before I give up on the recipe.

    • Jeannine says

      Try lowering your oven temp by 50 degrees. It will help not burn the outside layer while giving the inside time to cook. You can also cover with foil.

  6. Debbi says

    Wow! This was amazing! I bought bisquits, then saw comment on pizza dough…..I had 1 can on hand so did 1 can of each ! So yummy! A keeper!

  7. Lauren says

    I made this back in October for our Halloween block party and it was the hit of the food table! It took about 45 min for our dough to be completely done in the center. I kept putting it in for 5min increments and checking it. I definitely recommend adding the garlic powder to the recipe, it adds an extra level of flavor that puts this over the top! Also, it was so easy to throw together and perfect for a large group! Thanks for the recipe, we’ll keep it in the recipe box to use again.

  8. gitanya says

    This recipe was wonderful.I made it tonight. With pillsbury original flaky biscuits. Me and family really thought the biscuits gave it a good taste and texture.And it was easy and fast. Definitely recommend it! Oh i was able to find the biscuits on sale but there wasnt alot of the orignal.

  9. JoAnna Demeter says

    Turned out great and my girls loved it. Thank you so much. Think this will be a fun dish for Super Bowl where we spend more time grazing than sitting at the dinner table.

  10. alicia voegele says

    I just made this tonight very easy. I used biscuits not a problem. My first time making it. My 9 year old who is very picky but he absolutely loved this!
    Thanks for sharing all your recipes. New year new foods to try.

  11. Allison says

    So with the pizza dough, do you leave it rolled up and just cut it into small ‘chunks’ or roll it out and cut it into little squares or something?

    Trying this for the Super Bowl on Sunday!

  12. Chelsea says

    I pre-cooked the pepperoni by itself in the oven for about 7 minutes. I lined a cookie sheet with aluminum foil- this way I was able to drain away most of the grease. I also blotted w/ paper towels to absorb more of the oil. Added bonus: pepperoni was nice & crispy – just the way we like it! It was very yummy & everyone enjoyed it. Super simple to make! :-)

  13. mishygrani says

    I’ve used both the refrigerated pizza dough (the kind that you get in the deli section) and the frozen dough (be sure to thaw) and both worked great! I’d recommend letting the dough rise a bit before cutting up. I typically leave the dough ball on a floured cutting board for about 1/2 hr. Super recipe! I’ll be bringing 2 to a super bowl party and I know they’ll be gone before the half time show!

  14. KfD says

    Was very disappointed! Used pizza dough as mentioned for firtst timers. Crust was very dense and dark brown, did not “pull apart at all”. To much cheese and very greedy from the pepperoni.
    I thought I may have read the recipe wrong and put the Parnassians cheese in to early but not so. Sorry, this one was a flop for us.

  15. Ariel says

    I tried this recipe last night, and it tasted delicious. Even though I grease my bundt pan, it was a pain to get out. Any tips?

  16. Anna says

    I made the pull apart bread with canned pizza dpugh and instead of shredded mozzarella, i used fresh. it was awesome. needed to cook it an extra 20 min tho. maybe because of the pizza dough.

  17. Frances Morey says

    I would think that it is somewhat dry without the pizza sauce. It might be a good idea to serve it with a few bowls of the tomato sauce with pizza seasonings for dipping the bread balls into…or even flavored olive oil as a dipping sauce.

    • Erin says

      We made this and we didn’t put sauce in the bread itself. It’s actually quite moist, the oil and the cheese keep it from drying out. We dipped ours in pizza sauce and it was really delicious.

  18. Kristin says

    Just pulling this out of oven and it smells wonderful. But did anyone notice a lot of olive oil laying on the top and around edges of bread? Is 1/3 cup correct? Hoping it’s not “oily” tasting.

  19. Arlene says

    I just finished mixing this and the only thing I would change is I would cut the pizza dough (haven’t tried the biscuits) and as I added it to the empty bowl I would drizzel the olive oil and mix to be sure the oil coated the dough. Then add the other ingredients. I am waiting for it to come out of the oven but it smells good.

  20. Caroline says

    Did anyone answer the question about the best way to cut the pizza dough? I am very visual and this only shows the biscuits cut up…

  21. Skipper says

    Since I’m not a pepperoni fan, I tried ” cooked” ground beef and tossed it around with the dough. Super super, served with maranara sauce. Family loved it.

  22. Kathleen M Smith says

    I made this with pizza dough and it was good. I used cooked turkey sausage and added onions and red pepper. I didn’t have any parmesan ,,,, am sure that would have added another dimension of flavor. Sprayed the pan and it did not stick much.

  23. Carol says

    Hi there,
    This recipe looks yummy and easy!! I am going to use a loaf of french garlic bread (torn into pieces) and line my crockpot with it. I will let you know how it turns out :)

  24. Diane says

    Used the biscuits and also had an issue with the middle not getting quite done. Just lowered the temp to 300 degrees and covered with foil for additional time. To me the dish was very rich–maybe too much parmesan cheese. Unsure if I will make again.
