Pull Apart Pizza Bread: Father's Day Treat or Potluck Special

This recipe is an oldie but a goodie! We made it for our large Christmas family pot-luck last year, and have made it at home a few times too when we want something a little more fun than making regular pizzas. This is a definite pot-luck winner because it's so easy to make, and who doesn't love pizza? This would also be a great meal to make for Dad for Father's Day--and it's one the whole family will love! The boy-o was about 18 months when he tried it out and that's where his love of dipping foods was born. (Fair warning! heh)

Pull Apart Pizza Bread:


  • 2 Cans of Pizza Dough
  • 2 cups Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of a really good Italian seasoning
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 1 – 8 oz package of pepperoni
  • 1 cup Parmesean cheese
  • Optional: Add a ½ teaspoon of fresh garlic or garlic powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lay out the pizza dough, and using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter, slice up the pizza dough into approx 2" squares/pieces. (It's all getting piled into the bowl together, so don't stress about how big the pieces end up!)
  3. Cut the pepperoni into quarters.
  4. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and toss so that the oil is spread evenly on each piece of dough.
  5. Transfer dough mixture to a greased bundt pan
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes (or until the top is brown and the center is thoroughly cooked) 
  7. 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.
  8. Flip over on to a plate while it’s still hot.
  9. Serve with a side of pizza sauce and enjoy!

Once your pizza pull apart bread is all cooked simply add a side of your favourite pizza sauce for dipping and you're all set! To make it easier to eat you might want to pre-cut the pizza bread into sections, especially if you have a lot of guests who will want to make sure they get to try it--because once you've had a piece, it's hard to resists grabbing another chunk!!
