Pull-Apart Pizza Bites Recipe

As classic as pizza is it is a little boring, but what if we could have all the deliciousness of pizza with a fun and interactive twist? For National Pizza Day, that’s exactly what we did by making Pull-Apart Pizza Bites! All the ingredients of pizza but made like monkey bread to create little pizza bites you can rip off and dip in sauce. It's a great way to make a family dinner a little more fun and change up the usual pizza night.


To make this new take on pizza, you’ll need the following:



  1. Begin by adding the garlic-infused oil to a large bowl and spread the oil around the entire inside of the bowl.
  2. On a lightly floured countertop, roll the pizza dough out to be 3/4” thick and cut into 1” cubes.
  3. Take each cube and flatten in your hand. Place a slice of pepperoni and a small pinch of shredded mozzarella in the middle of the dough.
  4. Wrap the dough around the pizza topping and squish the seams together to keep the dough ball closed.
  5. Put the stuffed dough ball into the oiled bowl and roll around to cover the ball with oil.
  6. Repeat for the remaining pieces of dough.
  7. Add any remaining mozzarella and pepperoni, and the grated parmesan in the bowl with the dough balls.
  8. Gently mix all the ingredients and pour into your bundt or ring cake pan, carefully spreading to create an even top.
  9. Loosely cover the pan with a tea towel and allow it to rest in a warm area for 20 minutes.
  10. While the dough is resting, preheat your oven to 350F.
  11. Remove the tea towel and bake the dough mixture for 30-35 minutes. Keep an eye while it bakes, if the top starts getting too dark you can cover it with tin foil to prevent it from getting darker.
  12. Once the dough is fully cooked, remove from the oven and let it stand for 5 minutes on the counter.
  13. In a small sauce pot, warm up the pizza sauce and put it into a small bowl.
  14. Use a butter knife or small spatula to loosen the pizza bites from the pan, and invert onto a large plate or serving platter.
  15. Place your warm sauce dish in the middle of the ring of bites and serve!


We find this works best with just pepperoni and cheese inside the bites, however, try using your favourite pizza toppings mixed in with the bites for some extra pops of flavour!
