Step By Step  

Pizza in a flaky loaf? Yeah, and it's perfect a perfect snack for game day!

As prepared by Macheesmo,

This layered pizza pull-apart loaf makes the snacking sooo easy!

I think we can all agree that pizza is one of the most perfect game day foods out there. It’s easy to eat, fairly easy to make, and filling!

It’s very hard for me to say that this awesome looking loaf is actually better than pizza, because pizza's great – but it is different than pizza and people who like pizza will love it because it’s something different!

The Pepperoni Pizza Pull Apart Loaf is exactly what it sounds like: Layers of pizza pieces, packed into a loaf pan, and baked until golden brown.

This loaf is actually super easy to make thanks to a few Pillsbury Seamless Dough Sheets. These are easy to roll out and cut into pieces.

You’ll need two sheets to fill a 9x5" loaf pan.

Work with one at a time and top each piece with some pizza sauce, grated cheese, and pepperoni.

Then slice the pizza into squares. You should shoot for 6-8 squares per sheet.

I think it’s easier to stack a few of the slices and then transfer them as a unit to the loaf pan.

Before you start stacking the dough into the loaf pan though, be sure to lightly butter your pan so the loaf comes out easily.

Then just stack the pieces so the edges are up! You might lose some cheese or pepperoni during the transfer but don’t worry about it.

Again, it’ll take two sheets of dough to fill a normal loaf pan.

Since this is a really thick loaf now, it’ll need to bake at 350ºF for 50-60 minutes. It should be really golden brown on top and cooked through.

Let the loaf cool for a few minutes and then you should be able to remove the loaf entirely from the pan and start peeling off pieces!

If you wanted to make this easier to serve, you could chop it into sections, but I kind of like to let people peel off their own pieces.


This is a fun recipe if you are a pizza lover but looking for something a bit different!
