Super Bowl Pull-Apart Pizza

Whether you watch the Super Bowl for the commercials, the amazing food, the party with your friends, or to actually watch football, you’re going to need something to eat to pass the endless hours of Super Bowl coverage. So, here is a favorite in our house to get you through the game, and on to the commercials. At our house when it comes to having a bunch of people over, we are more than happy with the easy-peasy recipes. Takes ten minutes to prepare? Perfect. Takes nine hours? No thank you. So here is my first bit of deliciousness for your devouring pleasure. So easy the kids can help. Try it, love it, tell me how it all turns out. Enjoy!

Pull Apart BreadIngredients

3 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
Kosher salt
2 pounds store-bought pizza dough, at room temperature
2/3 cup pizza sauce, plus more for dipping
24 pepperoni slices, quartered
1 cup shredded mozzarella (4 ounces)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan (1 ounce), plus more for sprinkling


Position an oven rack in the center of the oven, and preheat to 400 degrees F. Brush the bottom and sides of a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with oil.

Pour the 3 tablespoons oil onto a large dinner plate, and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Pinch off pieces of dough the size of Ping-Pong balls, and roll them into rough balls. Roll each dough ball around in the salted oil until all sides are coated.

Put half the balls in the prepared pan, squishing them together. Spread half the sauce over the balls, then sprinkle with half the pepperoni, mozzarella and Parmesan. Repeat with the remaining dough balls, sauce, pepperoni and cheeses.

Put the loaf pan on a rimmed baking sheet (to catch any drips), and bake until the bread is puffed up and golden brown, about 25 minutes. Cover loosely with foil, and continue to bake until the bread is cooked through in the middle, about 25 minutes. Let it rest in the pan for 10 minutes, then use dry oven mitts or kitchen towels to carefully unmold. Sprinkle generously with Parmesan, and serve hot. (Let your guests pull the bread apart!)
