  • 1/3 cup of your preferred flavored dipping oil
  • 2 teaspoons of garlic powder
  • 2 (16-ounce) packages of pre-made pizza dough or homemade pizza dough
  • 1 (7-ounce) package of sliced pepperoni
  • 1 (8-ounce) package of shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius).
  2. Begin by separating the pizza dough into small, bite-sized pieces.
  3. In a mixing bowl, pour your favorite flavored dipping oil. Toss the dough pieces in the oil, ensuring they are lightly coated.
  4. Layer the dough pieces in the bottom of a bundt or fluted tube pan. Follow with a layer of sliced pepperoni, shredded mozzarella cheese, and a sprinkle of garlic powder. Repeat these layers and finish with a final layer of dough pieces.
  5. Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake until the bread is golden brown and cooked through in the center, which typically takes around 30 to 40 minutes.
  6. Once done, remove the pan from the oven and carefully invert it onto a cutting board. The bread should come out in one piece.
  7. To serve, pull apart the bread into individual servings. You can offer optional marinara dipping sauce on the side.

This recipe is ideal for feeding a hungry crowd. If you plan to serve a smaller group, feel free to scale down the ingredients accordingly. You can serve the pull-apart pizza bread either hot or at room temperature. Enjoy!
