How to make pull-apart pizza bread
Start by mixing up a double batch of biscuit dough.
Once the dough is ready, cut it into 2 inch pieces.
Mix it up with marinara sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and spices.
Spread it into a greased casserole dish.
Top with more cheese and toppings.
Bake until golden brown and the biscuits are cooked thoroughly.
- 5 cups flour
- 8 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed and chilled
- 2 cups cold milk
- 32 ounce jar pasta sauce
- 2 cups mozzarella, divided
- 1 cup pepperoni, divided
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 can sliced black olives, drained
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13x9 inch casserole dish and set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Add the cubed butter and mix together with a fork until the flour turns course and resembles peas.
- Slowly mix in the cold milk until a dough forms.
- Pour out the dough onto a floured surface and knead 8-10 times.
- Roll out the dough and cut it into 2 inch pieces.
- Toss the dough with the pasta sauce, 1 cup mozzarella, 1/2 cup pepperoni, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder.
- Spread the pizza dough evenly into the greased cookie sheet and top with the remaining mozzarella, pepperoni, black olives, and Parmesan cheese.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes, until fully set. The dough will be firm to the touch in the center. If it is still squishy, give it a few more minutes.
