Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread

Despite this party appetizer’s name, cheesy pull-apart goodness is no monkey business. Flaky biscuit dough, marinara sauce, cheese, and pepperoni are baked together in a bundt pan, then you dig right in, with more marinara sauce for dipping. Make this indulgent recipe your own by replacing the pepperoni with your favorite pizza toppings.

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Grease a 10-inch (25 cm) bundt pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Tear a biscuit in half and flatten to approximately 2 inches (5 cm) wide. Top with ½ teaspoon marinara sauce, 2 slices of pepperoni, and 1 teaspoon mozzarella. Pinch the dough together, sealing the fillings inside, and roll into a ball. Repeat until all of the dough is filled.
  3. Arrange a layer of pizza balls in the prepared bundt pan and top with ⅓ of the remaining mozzarella.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, oregano, and red pepper flakes.
  5. Drizzle some of the olive oil mixture over the pizza balls. Continue layering the remaining pizza balls, mozzarella, and more of the olive oil mixture, reserving about 2 tablespoons for brushing.
  6. Bake for 30–35 minutes, until the biscuit dough is golden brown and the cheese is bubbling between the pizza balls. Let cool for 2–3 minutes before inverting onto a serving platter.
  7. Brush the remaining olive oil mixture all over the monkey bread. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top. Warm the remaining marinara sauce and serve alongside for dipping.
  8. Enjoy!
