After making my pizza bites, I had enough dough leftover to make another pizza. I thought about making a pizza pie, but then I decided to try making pizza pull apart breads instead.

I’ve made pull apart breads before, but not with pizza dough. I didn’t quite have enough for a huge loaf, so I decided to make mini loaves. I love breads to be in pull apart form. Pulling apart the small sheets is so fun.

These tasted quite delicious. Each sheet had some mozzarella and pepperoni and some tomato sauce baked in. Yummy. I am also submitting this post to yeastspotting

Mini pizza pull apart breads

Yield: 2 mini loaves

Prep Time: 20 mins

Cook Time: 20 mins


1/2 pizza dough enough for one pizza (I used this recipe or you can use premade dough)
15 pieces of pepperoni, chopped into small pieces
1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
Italian seasoning
1/2 cup marinara sauce


1. Preheat oven to 400F and line two mini loaf pans. Roll out dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Slice dough into squares about 2 inch x 2 inch.
2. For each piece of dough, spread some marinara sauce, sprinkle cheese and pepperoni on the surface of one side. Stack each piece of finished dough on top of the next vertically so that the stuffing doesn't fall out. When you are finished with one loaf, move the entire stack into the prepared pan in one move to prevent the stuffing from falling out.
3. Allow dough to rest for about 20 minutes Sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Bake for about 20-25 minutes until tops are golden brown.

    Oh!!! You have always so great ideas!! I love them!!!
    And this is perfect for me!! I have been a lot of time thinking about making a pull apart bread (I love a lemon flavour one), so I must add this to my list, I will make it one day, instead of a pizza.
    Thanks a lot!!!

      I love pull apart breads. I still need to make the cinnamon one which is the original one I saw.
