Pizza Monkey Bread

Pizza monkey bread is easy to make, and turns refrigerated biscuits into something special.


  • 3 cans refrigerated biscuits
  • 1 24 ounce jar spaghetti sauce
  • 8 ounces pepperoni
  • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese or Italian three cheese blend
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • Optional Ingredients
  • chopped green bell pepper
  • chopped onions
  • black olive slices
  • cooked sausage
  • cooked hamburger meat


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Open canned biscuits and cut into quarters and place into bowl. Pour spaghetti sauce, and add Italian seasonings over the biscuits and stir well. Add 3/4 of the pepperoni into the mixture, reserve the remaining 1/4 to place on top of the "pizza". Add 1/2 of the cheese to the sauce and biscuit combination, and stir well. Pour the pizza into a greased 9 x 13 pan.  Sprinkle remaining pepperoni and cheese on top of pizza before placing into the oven.  Bake for approximately 25 minutes, or until the biscuits are fully cooked, they will be slightly firm when you press down on them.

Italian seasonings, is a very great spice blend to have on hand. This spice blend goes well in spaghetti sauce, on a pizza, or even sprinkled on grilled chicken. If you don't happen to have any on hand you can make your own Italian seasonings by mixing together equal amounts of: basil, marjoram, oregano, rosemary, and thyme.

    I’m looking forward to making this in a few days, I’m wondering what size containers of biscuits I need.
    I bought the small size (7.5oz) because they came in a 4 pack. :o)

    Easy to prepare but had to bake much longer than time given to get the biscuits done!

  • Kelair

        We did make the pizza monkey bread. It was a lot of fun putting together and it turned out great. It was actually much better than I was anticipating. Thank you!

          You know that was my impression too. This recipe was talked about over a few glasses of wine with friends. It turned out far better than what I imagined.

    What a great idea. I am going to need to find some people to share this with me because I have a feeling I’d eat the whole thing myself if I made it without people to share it with. :)
