Description

Pepperoni Pizza Pull Apart Bread is cheesy pepperoni pizza bread with a Dijon butter glaze. Easy to pull apart and dip into your favorite sauce!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf Italian bread
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, plus more for dipping
  • 11/2 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 20 slices pepperoni, about 2.5 ounces
  • 1/2 cup 80 percent fat margarine
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup pizza sauce for dipping (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil, large enough that when you pull up the sides you can wrap the bread loaf in the foil.
  2. Using a sharp bread knife, make deep, long slices thru the bread about 1-1/2 inches apart all across the bread, taking care not to cut thru to the bottom. Then make the same cuts going in the opposite direction. The cuts will look like a grid.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the cheese and garlic. Stuff the mixture into all of the bread cuts, leaving some cheese to poke out on the top.
  4. Stuff pepperoni pieces in all of the cuts.
  5. Place the butter in a microwave safe dish and microwave until the butter is just melted. Add the Dijon, Italian seasoning and garlic powder to the melted butter and stir to combine.
  6. Using a spoon, drizzle the butter mixture evenly over the bread.
  7. Wrap the loaf in the foil on the baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.
  8. Remove the pan from the oven and open the foil packet to expose the bread.
  9. Turn the oven broiler on high and broil until the top of the bread is light brown and the cheese is bubbling.
  10. Remove from the oven and serve hot.


Notes

Set chopsticks or wooden spoon handles on each side of the bread to use as a cutting guide when slicing the grid. It will keep the knife from going all of the way thru the bread.
