Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread

This might be the most creative take on traditional monkey bread EVER. No, really.

This is cheesy and savory unlike the traditional sticky and sweet breakfast/brunch version of monkey bread. It would be a great addition to any Super Bowl party menu. This is definitely great finger food as you just pull off a pepperoni pizza bite, dip in marinara, and be taken to garlicy-pizza heaven!

When it comes out, it will look something like this. Check out all of that bubbly, cheesy goodness!

Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread
Adapted from BlogHungry

  • 3 cloves of garlic, grated
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 2 cans refrigerated pizza dough (I used Pilsbury)
  • 6 oz mozzarella cheese, cut into small cubes (you’ll need ~48 pieces)
  • 48 slices of  pepperoni (from 1 package)
  • marinara sauce, warmed, for serving

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

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 (I worked this out with my fingers similar to how you would with a hand-tossed pizza). Top with a slice of pepperoni and a cube of mozzarella.

Wrap the dough around the pepperoni and cheese, pinching well to seal. Repeat until all of the dough is used.

Bake for 35 minutes, until the top is very brown.

Turn out onto a platter and serve with warmed marinara sauce for dipping.

Once you pop it out of the pan it will look like this. The garlic butter acts as the perfect coating to the pan and allows this to just slide right out without having to run a spatula around the edges.

This was a big hit at our football party yesterday and was gobbled up very quickly! Which of course resulted in a run on the treadmill this morning after all of the junk I ate. Why does everything that tastes so good have to be so bad?? Riddle me that.

I promise the next batch of recipes will be more figure friendly…
