I love pizza. I could eat it 5 nights a week and be happy. Since it’s not very healthy, I try to limit it to once every two weeks or so. It had been a while since we had pizza so I had a major craving, but I wanted something a little different. So I decided to try pizza monkey bread. It was amazing. So delicious.
Please excuse the crappy phone pictures, it’s the best I can do right now!
2lbs Pizza Dough (I used store bought)
Pepperoni (Or your favorite meat pizza topping)
Mozzarella Cheese cut into cubes
Pizza Sauce for dipping
2 tablespoons melted butter with garlic and Italian Seasoning mixed in
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Take a large marble sized piece of dough flatten in between your hands. Layer a piece or two of pepperoni on top, stick in a cube of cheese and pinch shut the dough. Dunk it in the melted butter and drop into bundt pan. Continue until all of the dough is gone. You can wait to preheat your oven until this step and cover the bundt pan for half an hour and then bake. this will give you dough that is a little less puffy. However, I let mine sit for maybe 10 minutes and we like it just fine. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is very brown, but not burned of course. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping. Enjoy! We usually eat this with a salad on the side.
Well guys and gals, I have some news. I got a job! It’s nothing big, just a part time job as a cashier at a grocery store. I’ll still blog, some day it will be on a regular basis, but for now my goal is for at least twice a week. I just haven’t been sitting down long enough to blog. I started my yoga class this week, had orientation and my checker pretest, among other things to do. Because working and trying to find a new house isn’t enough along with full time school, I’m going to be starting a new diet. It’s not really a diet necessarily, but I really hate it when people say “It’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle change…” Anyway, I’m going to start juicing again. I’m planning on juicing 3 times a day, for breakfast, a mid-morning snack, and lunch. Then I’ll eat a small meal of fish or chicken and some veggies and quinoa or something. In addition to my yoga class, I’ve been trying to get to the gym as often as possible… We’ll see how that goes with work and school.
I’ve made a few things recently that I’m excited to share with you guys. The first is Pizza Monkey Bread. It was delicious. It was a little time consuming, but let me tell you, it was worth it! I also want to share a different recipe for crock pot roast that we tried the other night. It was so juicy it fell apart when you touched it with a fork and the flavor was delicious. I have a final tonight and I start work tomorrow, so I will try my hardest to share these recipes and pictures either Sunday or Monday.
I hope life is treating you all well!
