Pepperoni Pizza Pull Apart Loaf

Recipe written by The Chef Next Door


Ingredients:

One package refrigerated pizza dough

5 oz. pepperoni minis

1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1 cup pizza sauce


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with non-stick spray and set aside.


In a medium bowl combine the pepperoni, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. On a cutting board, roll out the pizza dough. Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough vertically into eight sections, then horizontally into six sections, leaving you with 48 small dough pieces.


Arrange a third of the dough pieces in the prepared pan, then top them with a third of the cheese and pepperoni mixture. Repeat the layers two more times.


Bake the loaf, uncovered, for 25 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown on top. Let the loaf cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove it to a serving plate. Serve the loaf warm with pizza sauce on the side.


Bon Appetit!
