Expert Tips 

We have one member of the family that isn’t a fan of traditional pizza sauce, so she uses Basil Pesto sauce on all of her pizza crust.

While we haven’t tried it with this particular pizza bite recipe, there is no doubt in my mind that it would also work in monkey bread form.

Variations – Pizza night is so fun because it’s customizable to each family member! Add any pizza toppings to these refrigerated biscuits that you love.

Try extra cheese, green peppers, roasted garlic cloves, a dash of garlic powder, diced banana peppers, or black olives. And of course, top with a bit of grated parmesan cheese and pepper flakes before serving.
