This easy pizza pull apart bread is always a hit when I make it for my girls at my house. Filled with cheese and pepperoni and made with ready made biscuits I can throw it together in no time. (affiliate links present)

We started this yummy journey by making this cheesy garlic pull apart bread recipe a while back.

  • Going a step further I thought about mixing it up with other ingredients.
  • This way the possibilities would be endless!!

You use the same ingredients as if you were going to make our pizza in a mug recipe. That is great if your kids just want a snack for one too. If you haven’t let them try it, give it a whirl because it’s pretty fun.

  • Grands refrigerated biscuits will be our pizza dough
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Pepperoni slices are optional
  • Garlic salt
  • Oregano or Italian seasoning
  • Loaf pan
  • Parchment paper or non stick cooking spray

What you add for toppings is really up to you. Sliced olives would work well too. I don’t think I’d add things like mushrooms or other items that may release added moisture when baked.

Here are a few questions you might have before you get started:

What is pizza bread made of?

We wanted to make it really simple so refrigerated biscuits were used for the dough. Homemade is always possible but you’d need to refrigerate in order to stiffen it up and create layers for pull apart bread.

What is pizza bread called?

If you’re looking for the bread that a round pizza is made on, this would be known as the crust. Other options exist too like monkey bread or pull apart bread with pizza toppings baked within it.

What is the most popular pizza?

You might be surprised to know that Margherita tops the popular pepperoni version. BBQ chicken is next followed by Hawaiian which features Canadian bacon and pineapple.

This really only takes 15 or so minutes to prepare. I suggest using parchment paper so that when it’s done you can just lift it out of the pan and set it on a cutting board. Then let everyone pull each piece apart!

Brief step by step directions are below but a printable version is at the bottom of this post with ingredients needed.

Time needed: 30 minutes.

Pull apart pizza bread with Pillsbury biscuits

  1. Prep biscuits

    Cut each Grands biscuit in half and then use your palms to flatten it out and reshape it in to a circle.

  2. Preheat oven

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  3. Stack ingredients

    Place 1 flattened biscuit down, spread with some sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and then another biscuit. Then repeat this pattern until you’re done. Pick up and lay in loaf pan so stack is sideways. Sprinkle more cheese on top.

  4. Bake

    Put filled loaf pan in oven for 30 minutes or until top is brown. Then allow to cool for 5 minutes on a cooling rack before lifting out and serving it.

Here is the end result y’all!! OH YUM right?? I mean thinking outside of the box is the best. If you too like that idea, try our slow cooker pizza casserole or pizza gnocchi.

Now you could make this another way where you cut biscuits and toss in a large bowl with some olive oil and parmesan cheese.

Then integrating other ingredients in a bowl and toss together, it turns out more like a savory monkey bread of sorts.

This version takes quite a bit longer to make and cook in a bundt pan. Either way you just can’t go wrong for a Super Bowl appetizer or after school snack.

LOVE this and want some other idea to try this week too?? Start with this 7 layer dip pizza if you are throwing a party. These and our homemade air fryer mozzarella sticks are always a hit too!

Other pizza recipes you might enjoy after these are:

  1. Our smoked Traeger pizza roll up is outstanding. But quicker than that, make homemade hot pockets.
  2. Everyone loves our Instant Pot pizza pasta because everything is made together in less than 20 minutes.
  3. Pizza in the air fryer is fun too! I just used bagged dough that only required water to make. Let the kids create their own and get them involved in the kitchen!

Or just make a quick batch of pizza rolls in the air fryer as a snack.

  1. We made this Mexican pizza casserole that reminds me of the one at Taco Bell right at home! Creamy and delicious with ooey gooeyness in every bite.

We also made a cinnamon pull apart bread using these same rolls you can try for breakfast.
