OK...I know it seems like I'm stuck in a rut...a rut of pepperoni pizza snacks and appetizers...I mean first the pepperoni pizza crescent roll-ups, then the pepperoni pizza puffs, and now this pizza bubble bread...I guess there are much worse ruts to be in!
I made this for a snack the other day...but it really turned into something much more than a snack...more like a major PIG OUT!
So you start with two cans of Grands Jr...the little ones...
Then you flatten the biscuits...top with pepperoni slices and a cube of mozzarella
Then rolls into balls and dip in butter...yum!
And then into the bundt pan...
Pizza Bubble Bread
adapted from Pillsbury
8 tbs butter, melted (1 stick)
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2- 12 oz cans Pillsbury Grands Jr. refrigerated biscuits
40 slices of pepperoni
8 oz mozzarella cheese, cut into 20 pieces
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/4 cups pizza sauce, heated, for serving
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a bundt pan with non-stick spray. In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder. Separate 1 can of dough into 10 biscuits; press into a 3-inch round. Place 2 slices of pepperoni in the center of each biscuit. Top each with a piece of mozzarella cheese. Bring the dough up around the filling; press the edges to seal and shape each into a ball. Roll in the butter mixture. Place 10 balls in the pan. Sprinkle the dough balls with Parmesan cheese. Repeat with the remaining can of biscuits and place them over the balls in the pan. Pour remaining butter mixture over the top. Bake 33 to 38 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Gently loosen from the sides of the pan and invert onto a plate. Serve warm with pizza sauce for dipping.
Honestly...It's not just a pizza rut I've been in...it's an appetizer/junk food rut. But today something arrived in the mail that is going to help me out of it...the Joy the Baker Cookbook...hot of the presses...you can't even buy it yet. Me and a group of twenty-something other bloggers will be cooking from it over the next few weeks...so I'm swapping the junk food for sugar and buttercream...great swap huh? But, more on that later...
