Pizza Bread

When you’re craving pizza but don’t want to deal with a regular pizza, this pizza bread is a great way to satisfy your craving. It’s a savory quick bread flavored with cheese and pepperoni that is so simple to make. Just mix the batter, pour it into a pan and bake it.

I think it’s fun to come up with new ways to enjoy the flavors of pizza without having to actually make a pizza (or order one for delivery!). After I made my pepperoni pizza puffs, I was curious about making pizza bread. I wondered if I could use the same batter but doubled it and use a loaf pan to make a loaf of bread instead of puffs.

Just like the pizza puffs, this pizza bread was easy to make. It has all the flavors of pizza but is so much easier to make.

This savory bread is made the same way you make banana bread or zucchini bread, but instead of sweet it’s made with savory ingredients like cheddar cheese and pepperoni. There’s a reason they call them “quick breads” because they’re so easy to make.

What ingredients do I need for pizza bread?

  • All-purpose flour
  • Baking powder
  • Skim milk
  • Eggs
  • Pepperoni
  • Italian seasoning

How do I make pizza bread?

  • Make the batter: combine the flour, baking powder, milk and eggs in a mixing bowl. There shouldn’t be any lumps of flour once you’ve mixed it. Add the cheese and pepperoni and stir. Pour the batter into a greased 9×5” loaf pan.
  • Bake the pizza bread: bake the bread for 30 to 40 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

I like to serve the bread warm, so I let it cool for a few minutes and then slice it. I did notice that while the bread was baking it was nice and puffy, but it deflated a bit when it cooled. So, it’s a little denser than the puffs I made before but it still tastes delicious.

I normally have all the ingredients for this pizza bread on hand, so I know I’ll be making it again because it’s so easy.

  1. hi kirbie – this looks like something i can actually make! 🙂 i like how easy it is too…can’t wait to make it!

  2. I enjoy making quick pizza bread. I use a recipe similar to yours. It’s so tasty!! And it smells so good during the cooking and after!!!
    And then, it’s so amazing when you can change the ingredients every time you make it (the cheese, the herbs, pepperoni or bacon…). I haven’t made it since june. I have to repeat!!

  3. Looks and sounds soooo good. I will have to try making this tonight. 🙂

  4. What is the muffin pan for?… and would adding yeast help?

  5. directions:

    1. Grease a mini muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.

    • I apologize! That it a typo. I re-read your post after your comment but didn’t see the muffin pan mentioned, and I didn’t re-read the recipe section. I accidentally must have included it from the original version of the pizza puffs I made with this recipe. Sorry about that
