This Pull Apart Pizza Bread is made with whole wheat dough that is stuffed with Italian cheeses and pepperoni! Bake and then dip chunks of this beautiful mess in homemade pizza sauce!

Besides the fantastic savings you get by making your own pizza there is one other difference between my homemade pizza and take out. The size and shape of my pizza is NEVER perfectly round like you get with delivery. My dough is rolled in round-ish or oval-ish shapes and bakes up completely delicious, but definitely not picture perfect.

But who needs perfection when you can turn an oval shaped pizza into a pile of gooey pizza bites like a nacho dish?! In fact, the messier the better when you make this Pull Apart Pizza!

This pizza bread was inhaled in what seemed like mere minutes! I was glad that I snuck a piece before I put the platter in front of Alan and one of his beer brewing buddies. They were measuring hops and watching football so of course they needed something to munch on!

I used my no-rise Whole Wheat Pizza Dough recipe and divided the dough into two separate balls. I think this is best right out of the oven because the chunks of mozzarella cheese melts to perfection, so bake the other half shortly after serving the first batch!

Get creative and add some of your favorite pizza toppings! Serve this as a complete meal or add it to a variety of appetizers for your football fanatics!

    I call those roundish and oval pizzas “rustic” hahaha. I love the looks of these pull apart pizzas. They’d be just the thing while watching the big game.
