Pizza Monkey Bread

Pin It
I had about a half a bag of Rhodes rolls in the freezer and decided I would try making pizza monkey bread.  I've seen it all over food blogs and Pinterest and I knew it would be a hit with my kids.  Especially since they are so 'anti-sauce'.  Weird, I know.

Any dough would work really. You could use biscuits, homemade pizza dough, store bought dough, or any thawed frozen bread dough.  I love a versatile recipe!  I took my frozen rolls and stuck them in the fridge the morning I was going to make them.  That afternoon, I pulled them out and cut them in half.  After we got back from karate, the girls and I took the pieces of dough, flattened them out into small circles, and placed cheese in the middle.  I cut up a variety of cheese sticks I had, so we had mozzarella, colby jack, monterey, and cheddar.  What can I say, we like cheese.  I cut them into about 1 inch pieces.  We also added some mini turkey pepperonis to some of them.  

After adding your cheese/pepperoni, just seal the dough around the filling, making little balls of cheese-y goodness.
I sprayed a bundt pan with cooking spray, then added a layer of cheese filled dough balls.  Then I lightly sprayed them with olive oil and sprinkled on a little garlic powder.  Then we added the next layer, spraying with olive oil again and adding a little more garlic powder.  Then I sprinkled on some oregano.  After using all the dough (which only ended up being about a half a pan), I baked it up until golden brown...
The kids enjoyed this....
Cheese please!
You can also warm up some pizza sauce on the side for dipping.

I will definitely be making this again!
