Recipe: Pizza Pull-Apart Bread

Pepperoni, mozzarella and a good loaf of crusty bread — what’s not to like?

Pizza Pull-Apart Bread

Pizza Pull-Apart Bread


  • 2 round or oval loaves of bread (something with a firm outer crust)
  • 2-3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup pepperoni slices, cut in half
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups marinara/pizza sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil (leave enough extra foil on the sides to wrap the bread loaves) and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Use a long bread knife to slice the bread. Make long slices about 1.5 inches apart across the bread, and then in the opposite direction so that you get a checkerboard effect (be careful not to slice all the way through the bread, you do not cut through the bottom crust).
  3. Gently stuff the mozzarella into all of the spaces in the bread.
  4. Stuff pepperoni slices into the spaces next.
  5. Melt butter in a small bowl and whisk in Italian seasoning. Drizzle or brush seasoned butter over the whole bread.
  6. Place loaves onto prepared baking sheet and wrap the loaves with the extra foil.
  7. Bake 15-20 minutes until cheese is melted and bread starts to brown lightly. Serve pull-apart bread with warmed pizza/marinara sauce for dipping.
