Hide Images
  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Butter inside of 9x5-inch loaf pan with some of the 2 tablespoons melted butter.
  • 2
    Unroll 1 pizza crust. Brush some of the remaining melted butter in thin, even layer over dough. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon garlic powder. Unroll second pizza crust over dough. Gently roll up both crusts into log.
  • 3
    Tuck log into loaf pan, bringing in about 1 inch of each side. Bake about 25 minutes or until golden brown and thoroughly baked. Cool completely in pan, about 45 minutes.
  • 4
    Remove loaf from pan; place on ungreased cookie sheet. Cut diagonal slices in loaf, cutting to but not through bottom of loaf. Repeat cutting diagonal slices the opposite way, creating diamond cuts in loaf.
  • 5
    Gently and evenly stuff 12 to 15 cubes (1 inch) fresh mozzarella cheese and 1 lb crumbled cooked bacon into cuts in loaf. Sprinkle 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz) over top.
  • 6
    Return to oven; bake 10 minutes longer or until cheeses are completely melted.

Expert Tips

  • Garnish the loaf with some chopped fresh chives or green onions, and serve super warm for a maximum ooey-gooey, cheesy and ‘bacony’ experience!
  • Get creative with the cheeses as well—add another cheese variety, and make it a “Bacon Triple-Cheese Pull-Apart Loaf”!
