Pizza Pull Apart Bread

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

I’ve partnered with Lipton to share with you a Holiday recipe that is sure to impress. The Holidays are a time for sharing and giving, and what better thing to share than food. This Pizza Pull Apart Bread recipe is made to be shared; it’s even in the name! Everyone gets to pull their own piece of pizza bread and best of all there is enough for everyone.

Watch a replay below of me making this recipe LIVE with one of my Bold Bakers, Jonny!

The bread loaf is loaded with gooey cheese and other pizza toppings. Each slice soaked in tomato sauce, cheese and pepperoni. The beauty of this recipe is that you can change out the filling with what you like, you can do just butter and garlic or make a vegetarian pizza pull apart loaf.


Make this Pizza Pull Apart Bread ahead of time, even the day before your guests arrive. Cut it, stuff it and wrap it up for when you need it then bake it off fresh for your party. It even makes a great dish to bring to a pot luck because it will travel well and it’s perfect for sharing with big groups.

Special thanks to Lipton for partnering with me to share this recipe with you!

  • 1 round loaf of bread (day old)
  • Mozzarella , grated
  • Tomato or Pizza sauce
  • Pepperoni
  • Dried Italian herbs
  1. Take your loaf of bread and using a carving knife, slice the bread all the way down to the base of the loaf BUT not through the loaf. We are creating a type of "accordion" bread.
  2. Butter each slice with Pizza sauce. You want to do this on both sides to get a really well soaked bread.
  3. Next generously sprinkles grated cheese, pepperoni and herbs between all of the slices. Be generous here, it will just make your loaf all the better.
  4. Wrap the loaf fully in tin foil (at this stage you can pop it in the fridge to bake it off later)
  5. Bake at 375oF (190oC) for 10 minutes. Remove the foil and allow to bake uncovered for another 10 minutes.
  6. Serve straight away and enjoy!

    Can I use your Irish bread recipe for the bread?

    • Gemma Stafford on March 30, 2019 at 5:26 pm

      No for this one Seline. This has to be a yeasted dough 🙂


      • Seline on March 31, 2019 at 4:39 am

        Ohhh😯… That means I could use the crazy dough one, right?

        • Gemma Stafford on March 31, 2019 at 2:35 pm

          yes absolutely use the crazy dough. Great idea!

    I made a breakfast version with scrambled eggs, bacon, pepper jack, mozzarella, and mushrooms with your tomato sauce – lots, lots, of bacon! Yummy!

    • Gemma Stafford on June 19, 2017 at 2:03 pm

      Wow! Victoria, that sounds lovely, well done, and thank you for the ideas,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi Gemma,
    What is the abbrevation of PST you said in the video in which you were telling that you are gonna doing live stream on YouTube on 22 Dec?

    • Gemma Stafford on December 18, 2016 at 2:32 am

      AH! yes, I forget that this may not be understood.
      PST is Pacific Standard time. This is 8 hours behind Grenwich Meantime. The fowwowing link will help you to understand how this is for your own country. I think India is 5 1/2 hours ahead of Gremwich, Middle East is 3 hours ahead of Grenwich etc.
      Gemma 🙂

        Hi Gemma,
        Can you make your vanilla birthday cake in a mug? Can we bake this whole cake in a microwave? Why did you used 5 egg whites and just 1 whole egg in this vanilla birthday cake?

        • Gemma Stafford on December 19, 2016 at 2:15 am

          Hi there,
          NO!! do not bake this cake in a microwave, it will not be good!
          This is what is known as a WHITE CAKE, this is why egg whites are used, the yolks tend to color the batter.
          It is best to use the mug cake recipes for the microwave, they are designed for this purpose,
          Gemma 🙂

    Where is the link to the bread recipe you used in video? I see the sauce is linked, but could only find the cinnamon raisin no knead recipe. Cannot find the plain loaf you used.

    • Gemma Stafford on December 17, 2016 at 3:16 am

      Hi there,
      yes, you are right, this is the basic bread recipe, but without the fruit and spice, I will pop the plain version up when I get a moment,
      Gemma 🙂
