Homemaking Challenged's Pizza Bunt




At long last, this recipe I have been promising. I so excited to FINALLY share it with you.  It has become a family favorite.  I am especially proud of the photos on this one.  I'm still learning, but these pictures are leaps and bounds above my other recipes to date.  If you aren't into the photos, than you can skip down to the bottom for the full recipe and ingredients list.

First gather your ingredients.
 2 packages of pre-made Pizza dough (we use Trader Joe's)
1/2 cup butter melted
garlic powder
shredded mozzarella cheese
pepperonis

Honestly use a a ton of cheese I use AT LEAST 3 if not four cups of shredded cheese. Use what you feel comfortable with.

The dough must rest for 20 minutes, while I allow the oven to heat up to 375 degrees (I use a dark non-stick pan, if yours isn't you may want to turn it up to 400 degrees)

Then you flatten ONE of the dough balls, and cut it into 1inch pieces.  I use a pizza cutter, it is very effective.


Then smother your dough in 1/4 cup of the butter with garlic powder to taste.
 Place half of it in to the bottom of your bunt
 Place a healthy amount of cheese on top
 Layer the pepperonis
 Add the remaining half onto the top.

Repeat this process with the second dough ball, so that you have three layers of cheese and pepperoni.   You will have to recut the second dough, and then mix it with the remaining butter and garlic.


Finnish this whole bunt off with copious amounts of cheese.  Then place it in the oven for 25-35 minutes. until it looks like this:


Flip it out of the pan onto a plate to serve.


We like to heat up marinara sauce and put it inside for dipping.


Let the wonderful cheesy pizza-y goodness explode in your mouth


Even my picky toddler loves this one!

I hope that you will enjoy this as much as my family.

  3. Just came across your blog! Love it :) I have recently started using whole foods pizza dough but will have to try Trader Joes. Do you know when you refer to each "ball" is that about the equivalent to one pound? Wondering if Trader Joe's is cheaper. It is bit father of a drive but Whole Foods is 3.99 per ball(pound). Thanks!

    1. Amanda, I believe they are 1 pound each, the Trader Joe's by us sell three types, plain, wheat or garlic & herb. I don't recall the exact price, but I know that it is cheaper than 3.99 per ball. Thanks for reading, and commenting. I love hearing from those who read my blog out!
