Pizza Monkey Bread

A ridiculously fun twist on your favorite pizzas!


cup (1 stick) butter, melted
teaspoon garlic salt
tablespoon Italian seasonings
cans Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Homestyle refrigerated biscuits
cups finely chopped pizza toppings (pepperoni, cooked sausage, green peppers, mushrooms, onions....whatever you'd like!)
cup marinara sauce
cups shredded Mozzarella cheese


  • 1 Grease a bundt pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • 2 Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 3 In a small bowl, whisk together melted butter, garlic salt and Italian seasonings until combined. Set aside.
  • 4 Remove biscuits from the cans. Take a raw biscuit, and cut a slit in the side. Use your fingers (or carefully use a knife) to open up the biscuit to form a pocket for the toppings.
  • 5 Carefully tuck a pinch of cheese into the pocket of the biscuit, then add in a teaspoon or so or marinara sauce, then add in some pinches of your pizza toppings, top with a final pinch of cheese, then use your fingers to pinch together the dough to seal in the pocket. Be sure that it is well-sealed.
  • 6 Dunk the pocket in the butter mixture on both sides, then place in the bundt pan with the seam side up.
  • 7 Repeat with remaining biscuits until they are all filled and placed in the bundt pan side by side.
  • 8 Pour any remaining butter mixture over the top of the biscuits in the bundt pan, then bake for 30 minutes until the dough is cooked and lightly browned. Remove and let sit for 5 minutes.
  • 9 Carefully turn the bundt pan on top of a plate and give it a slight jiggle to release the monkey bread. Then remove the pan and serve the monkey bread with a side of extra marinara sauce for dipping.

Pizza Monkey Bread

As prepared by Gimme Some Oven,

A ridiculously fun and delicious twist on your favorite pizzas!

Just when you thought pizza couldn’t get any more delicious, along comes this super cool way to eat it – baked inside of monkey bread - Pizza Monkey Bread!

Whaat? You heard right. And here’s how to get ‘er done:


First, pick up 2 cans of these yummy homestyle biscuits to be your pizza "crust."


Chop up some of your fave pizza toppings. Use anything you like (as long as you can chop it into small pieces that will fit inside of the pizza pockets). Cook any raw meat, like sausage, ahead of time.


With a small knife, cut a slit in the side of the biscuit. Use your fingers to hollow it out and make a little pocket. Fill the pocket iwth the toppings and a few pinches of shredded cheese, plus a teaspoon or so of marinara sauce.


Pinch the top of the dough back together to seal the pocket. Dunk it in melted butter mixed with Italian seasoning and garlic salt, then place it seam-side up into a greased bundt pan. Repeat with the remaining biscuits and topping ingredients.


You should have about 15 little pockets all lined up next to each other, with the seams on top. Cute? Cute.


Bake it up for a half hour at 350 degrees, then remove and admire your creation! Let it rest for 5 minutes or so.


Invert the pan onto a plate or pedestal.


Pull out a "slice" of Pizza Monkey Bread to enjoy!


Serve it up with extra marinara sauce for dipping, if you’d like.
