Pull-Apart Pizza Bread

I have been wanting to share this recipe for a while.  I finally had a chance to snap some photos of this delicious bread.  Because, let me tell ya, this is a hard one to keep fingers away from long enough to snap a shot! It is so good and it is best while still warm.  I just wanted y'all to understand the sacrifices I make to get these photos taken (hee, hee). 
I had to swipe a few hands away to get a clear picture.  Seriously, with boys in the house, you know food like this does not last long.  And they start getting mighty impatient!
Anyhow, I first saw this recipe in the new Gooseberry Patch cookbook, Garfield..Recipes with Cattitude. You might remember that I did a review of that book not too long ago.  Well, I have really enjoyed so many recipes from that book, but this one stood out because I knew immediately it would be one my family would love.  This is a fun one to mix up so make sure to read my notes below.
1 (12 oz) tube refrigerated flaky biscuits
1 tbsp. olive oil
16 slices pepperoni, quartered
1/4 cup shredded pizza-blend cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
t tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
pizza sauce, for dipping

oil not pictured

Note: My son loves sausage pizza so I think this one is great to add your favorite pizza toppings. Cooked and crumbled sausage or green peppers or even mushrooms would all be fun additions to this. Also, the original recipe calls for one onion, chopped. I just decided on the onion powder for my family. But feel free to add that into the recipe instead of onion powder.

Preheat oven to 400F degrees.
Spray a bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Note: The original recipe states to line your bundt pan with aluminum foil, then spray with nonstick cooking spray. I just used the nonstick and I did have to kind of go around the edges with a butter knife before it would release. But it did end up coming out just fine.

Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces, place in a bowl.
Toss biscuit pieces with oil and set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients; mix well.
Add biscuits; toss well to coat.
Arrange in the prepared Bundt pan.
It looks good already, huh?
Bake at 400F degrees for 15 minutes (or until golden).
Turn bread out of pan onto a serving plate while still warm.
You may need to take a butter knife and gently go around the edges to get it to loosen it up.
I like to serve it top side up (the pretty side).
Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.
Makes about 2 dozen pieces.
No one can resist these, I'm telling ya!

Oh, this looks DELICIOUS. And slightly sinful (but maybe that's why it looks so good, eh?). I'll have to try it very soon.

New visitor to your blog, but really like it - great site!

Tis looks good but I am not really too fond of biscuit dough. Do you thin k this would work out with frozen bread dough balls?

Could you use butter instead of oil

No bundt pan....what's a good substitute?

I think that using a 2 qt. round baking dish would give you similar results. Also, as far as for the sticking factor, I line the bottom of my cake pans with wax paper for easy removal. Good luck. :)
