No pizza sauce needed to create this delicious recipe for cheesy pull apart bread. There are so many ways to enjoy a pepperoni bread recipe and this one is no exception.

Marinara sauce or garlic butter makes the perfect sauce for dipping.
Pull Apart Pizza Bread

For me, the pizza crust is the best part and this makes the entire bread the pizza crust, plus if you like it, make some fresh pesto sauce to slather on and dip with!.

How to make Pull Apart Pizza Bread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare your pan with non-stick spray.
You can also make your pull part bread with a bundt pan, 2-3 quart casserole dish or 9×13 pan with the same results.
Separate your Pillsbury jumbo flaky biscuits and cut them into eighths. Set aside.
Cut the pepperonis into quarters.
In a large mixing bowl, combine cut up biscuits, pepperoni, cheese, seasonings and oil.
Gently mix everything together; making sure the oil is spread out to all of the biscuits and coated well.
I find that using my hands makes this process a little easier because you can make sure that all the sides are covered.
Pour the pizza mixture into your prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes uncovered.
Depending on how big or small your pan is will determine the final baking time so its best to keep a close watch so you do not burn.
Keep checking every 5 minutes until the biscuits are cooked all the way through.
This recipe in the IMAGES used a 2 quart casserole dish and it took the 30 minutes + an additional 15 to be done baking.
In the video, I used a baking pan and it only took 33 minutes to be done.
Bread Baking Tip: At the 30 minute mark, if your biscuits are browning too much and you need to cook longer, cover the top with foil to prevent further browning.
When I created the video, I left the biscuits on the counter and they were pretty expanded when I opened the can and a bit sticky, so leave them in the fridge while the oven preheats.
Its ok to add more cheese or even other ingredients like olives.
I also prefer fresh parsley over dried, but that choice is yours.
