Gather Your Ingredients

2 Cans Biscuits, Grated Mozzarella, Grated Parmesan, Pepperoni, Red Sauce, Garlic Salt, Parsley (not pictured: Oregano & Pepper)

Cut Pre made Biscuits into Quarters

First, separate each biscuit and cut into quarters. Slice in half, then in half again. You can use a knife, or I found a dough cutter worked like a charm….and was easy enough that the kids could do it!

Dough Pieces, EVOO & Seasonings

Next, put all the dough pieces I a large bowl and drizzle with Olive Oil, Garlic Salt, Parsley, Oregano and Pepper. Toss to coat, making sure all the dough pieces are covered in EVOO.

Pop into the Oven and Bake.  Tip: If it starts to brown too much, lightly cover with foil the last 10-15 mins.  You want to be sure the inside has had time to cook completely!

While the Pepperoni-Pull-Apart-Pizza is in the oven, I also highly recommend letting your little helpers make the side dish to enjoy with dinner: a salad chock full of veggies!  Story, and her assistant kitty Glamour, had a blast topping the lettuce with a variety of colorful veggies!

Yummy Goodness

Plate Up the Yummy Goodness!

Carefully remove from the Bundt Pan.  Take a long knife to slice around the edges if it doesn’t come out easily.  Mine just needed a little coaxing, then slid right out when I turned the pan over.

Dinner Is Served!

Dinner Is Served!

Serve with a Salad and an extra side of warm red sauce for dipping!

I mean....

I mean….

Seriously....

Seriously….

How good does this look?!?!?!

How good does this look?!?!?!

Well, it tastes even BETTER than it looks!

TIP: You can also change up the flavors by adding a variety of different fillings.  Omit the pepperoni if you’re a vegetarian, and add in Mushrooms, Peppers & Onions.  Make one with Sausage and Cheese.  Add some Crushed Red Pepper if you like heat. Experiment with different sauces: Pizza, Marinara, Tomato Basil, 4 Cheese, etc.  Get Creative!  The possibilities are endless!

Pepperoni-Pull-Apart-Pizza

  • 2 Cans pre-made Biscuits (or pizza dough) *I used Immaculate Baking ButterMilk Biscuits
  • 2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella
  • 1 Cup Shredded Parmesan
  • Handful Pepperoni, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/3 Cup Red Sauce (I used about 4 heaping TBS of Rao’s 4 Cheese…its what I had in the pantry)
  • 2 TBS Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 TBS Dried Organic Parsley
  • 2 tsp Dried Organic Oregano
  • 1 tsp Organic Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Organic Pepper
  • Olive Oil Spray, or Coconut etc

*Preheat Oven 350.  Cut each Biscuit into quarters (4 pieces).  In a large mixing bowl, add dough pieces, cheeses, EVOO, parsley, oregano, garlic salt & pepper.  Mix to combine making sure all pieces are coated in oil.  Grease a Bundt Pan with spray and add a little over half the dough/cheese/pepperoni mixture into the bottom.  Add a thin layer of sauce on top, then cover with remaining dough mixture.  Cook for about 30 mins or until completely cooked through.  Cover with foil if browning too quickly!  Remove and let cool for 3-5 mins.  Turn Bundt Pan over to release Pizza.  Use a knife to loosen side if needed.

Like I said, this is such a simple and delicious meal to make on the fly.  I think my husband liked it even more than the kids.  Seriously, he said he thinks he prefers this over regular pizza!!!  And, it’s a GREAT way to get the kids involved in the kitchen.  They even loved helping with the salad and veggies while the pull apart was cooking.  Anything to get the little ones cooking is a winner in my book!

Hope You Enjoy Hotcookin!
