Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread
2 Cloves garlic, thinly sliced
4 Tablespoons butter
2 lbs pizza dough
6 oz Mozzarella cheese, cut into small cubes
Package of pepperoni slices (we use minis)
2-3 cups marinara sauce , warmed, for dipping
Heat garlic and butter over medium heat just until the garlic begins to brown. Remove from heat and let sit.
Lightly brush the inside of a Bundt pan with garlic butter
Pull off large marble-sized balls of dough and flatten. Top with slice of pepperoni and a cube of Mozzarella
Wrap the dough around the pepperoni and cheese, pinching well to seal.
Very lightly brush the pizza ball with garlic butter and place into the Bundt pan
Repeat until all the dough is used
Cover and let sit for 30 minutes while oven is preheating to 400
Bake for 35 minutes until the top is very brown
Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes
Turn out onto platter and serve with marinara sauce
Everyone ate this up with a quickness, even Cadence!!
Takes a little practice but by the end you get the hang of making sure each one is seals well (had a few fall apart on me in the beginning)
keep hands and fingers as dry and oil free as you can so the dough remains sticky for sealing. I brushed the pizza balls with oil in the pan instead of while I was holding them.
And have fun, we made pepperoni, sausage/pepperoni, sausage/mushroom.
