This fun pull-apart pizza bread is a great way to get the kids cooking in the kitchen!


  • ½ can biscuit dough (about half a 16.3 oz./680 g pkg)
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
  • ⅛ tsp (0.5 mL) garlic powder
  • 12   pepperoni slices
  • ½ cup (125 mL) grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1½ cups (375 mL) pizza sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Cut or tear the biscuit dough into 30 equally sized pieces. Roll each piece to form a ball and place into a medium bowl.
  2. Place the butter and garlic powder in a small bowl and microwave until the butter melts, about 30 seconds. (To keep the butter from “popping” and making a mess, use a low temperature setting and check the butter every 15 seconds.)
  3. Pour the melted garlic butter over the dough balls and gently toss with your hands.
  4. Place three dough balls into the bottom of each well of the Silicone Cupcake Pan. Tear each pepperoni piece in half and put 4 halves on top of each well. Sprinkle half the cheese evenly over the wells.
  5. Place the remaining dough balls, 2 per well, on top and gently press down. Top with the remaining cheese. (The wells will not be full, but the dough will puff up as it bakes!)
  6. Bake for 16–20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  7. Cool for 5 minutes before removing the monkey bread from the pan. Serve with pizza sauce.
