Pepperoni Pizza Pull-Apart Bread

The Super Bowl is right around the corner, and this pizza bread is sure to be a hit with everyone at your party, kids and grown-ups alike.  My family absolutely devoured it!  It’s so easy to put together, and the possibilities for other pizza “stuffings” are endless. Sausage is fabulous, and plain old cheese is pretty good too.

Don’t be shy about shoving the toppings down into the cut bread–you can fit a lot more in there than you think!  If you have a fairly sturdy loaf of bread, it shouldn’t be a problem.  If you can find the mini pepperonis, they work great in this recipe.  Serve with some warm marinara on the side for dipping.
