Pizza Pull Apart Bread




One thing I love about pizza is how many variations there are. Thin crust, deep dish, stuffed, etc. A few weeks ago we went to a party and this delicious pizza bread was one of the appetizers. It was so good and I couldn't wait to make it. I decided to make a meal out of it and serve it alongside a Caesar Salad. My husband hemmed and hawed about it not being a meal nor a pizza because there was too much bread, but after one bite he was hooked and so was I. Yum!

Pizza Pull Apart Bread

Ingredients
1 Round Italian Loaf
Toppings of your choice ( We used 1 cup chopped pepperoni and Italian sausage)
2 cups mozzarella cheese
4 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp oregano
4 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Slice the bread lengthwise and then width wise. (Make sure your slits are cut deep.) Stuff and fill the bread with mozzarella, and toppings of your choice. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Once melted, add the garlic powder and oregano. Brush on top of the Italian loaf and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Wrap the entire pizza bread with foil and bake for 15 minutes on a baking sheet. After 15 minutes, remove the foil and put back into the oven for 10-12 minutes until the top is crispy and the cheese is melted.

Serve with marinara sauce or ranch dressing.

  3. Ooh, that sounds delicious Bridget. I'm a big fan of that sort of thing. I recently had something similar, but it also included sweet chilli sauce and sour cream. Probably not the sort of nutrition I was after but DANG it was good :)
