Pizza Monkey Bread

Have you jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon?  I have to admit, I was hesitant at first.  The last thing I needed was an excuse to spend more time on the computer.  But I finally gave in and it is great!  Most of the time I explore on my iPod touch while I'm feeding baby H.  I've found some really great decorating ideas for my new house and some yummy looking recipes I'd like to try.  In fact, I tried one last night and that is what I'd like to share with you because it was a HUGE success with my boys (and my husband)!

This is the basic concept: take your favorite pizza dough, pinch off a small ball, and then flatten it.  On your little piece of dough place a piece of pepperoni and a small cube of mozzarella cheese.  Then wrap it all into a ball.  Brush the ball with garlic butter and place in a bundt pan.  Repeat until all your pizza dough is used!  Then you bake at 400 for 35 minutes.  In the meantime, heat up your favorite pizza sauce for dipping.  (Go here for more detailed directions)

I make homemade pizza quite a bit and this was a nice variation on a classic.  I'll have to admit, it was a little bit time consuming . . . but the end result--the whole family loving it--would be worth it to do again.  In fact, this would be a great meal to let your little ones help you with!  My boys would probably love to place the pepperonis and cheese cubes onto the dough!


  1. What a great idea. Thanks for sharing it. I saw some pizza muffins on pinterest that looked like fun. I think this would be even more fun for a casual get together.

  2. I am making these for dinner tonight. And I pinned your last post of Alphabet flashcards. Love your blog!

  3. Since I love your blog so much I nominated you for The Versitle Blogger Award, Hope you come by my blog and accept it.Liz
