 Easy Pizza Monkey Bread Recipe
I have found a recipe that my kids really enjoy. I have made monkey bread in the past that was sweet. Now I have made a monkey bread that they can eat for lunch or dinner or maybe even just a snack. Just this week I made Pizza Monkey Bread and my 3 year old son has been asking for more every day.

Check out my recipe for Pizza Monkey Bread.

Pizza Monkey Bread Recipe
Recipe type: Bread
  • 1 packet yeast (2¼ tsp)
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 TSP baking powder
  • 1 TSP sea salt
  • 1 TBSP Italian seasoning (for coating)
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese - grated (for coating)
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • ½ cup pepperoni - chopped in pieces
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese - chopped in little squares
  1. In mixing bowl add yeast and warm water. Let sit for a few minutes to allow yeast to start working.
  2. In a separate bowl, add flour, baking powder, and sugar.
  3. In another bowl, add parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning to make coating mixture.
  4. Slowly add flour to your bowl in batches using mixer fitted with dough hook. Be sure to scrape the sides as dough is kneading to make sure everything is added/mixed. Let mixer knead dough for 4 to 5 minutes until it comes together as a large mass of dough.
  5. Remove dough from mixing bowl, shape dough into ball form and place in lightly oiled bowl for 1 hour to allow the dough to rise.
  6. After 1 hour, take dough ball and break into small pieces. Lightly flatten each piece and place 1 or 2 pieces of cheese on top along with a few pieces of pepperoni. Close pieces of dough and seal to create a ball. Roll ball in melted butter and dust with coating mixture. Continue until dough is gone.
  7. Spray bundt pan with cooking spray or use nonstick pan and arrange dough balls in bowl going clockwise.
  8. Bake at 400 degrees for 22 to 25 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven, allow to cool and dip in your favorite dipping sauces!

My KitchenAid 7 Quart Stand Mixer really comes in handy for making the dough!
