My friend and neighbor Julie (mother of Daniel's bff Aubrey) is hosting a Pampered Chef party next Sunday afternoon. Last week we were going over some of the recipes she was interested in having demoed for her cooking show, and we came across this one. Today we got together for lunch at Julie's house and decided to give it a trial run (by the way, Julie's house is EXACTLY the same as mine, EXACTLY- just in case you were noticing from the picures)! Let me tell you, what a hit with the kids! Of course, we made it a little differently than the recipe that the Pampered Chef offers, but the idea is the same and it is SO easy! Give it a try!
Pull Apart Pizza
- 2 tubes refrigerated bread dough (like Pillsbury, I typically don't like Pillsbury but they are redeeming themselves by changing the ingredients in their products and offering more natural choices)
- 2 cups shredded cheese of your choice (Julie and I used a mix of mozzarella, parmesan, and cheddar and then because I had some leftover from last night, we topped the pizza with a few fresh small mozzarella balls)
- approx. 3/4 cup pizza sauce
- your favorite pizza toppings (we used pepperoni)
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a large pizza stone generously with cooking spray or olive oil. Cut each loaf of dough in half lengthwise about 3/4 of the way through. Then cut each loaf crosswise creating 32 half moons (16 from each loaf). Arrange on the stone so that they are just touching, leaving a 1/2 inch border around the outside. Brush lightly with olive oil and bake 14-16 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Top the "crust" with pizza sauce, cheese, and your favorite toppings. Bake another 5 minutes or so until cheese is melted and bubbly!
The kids love this because they were able to pull pieces off, and the pieces were just the right size for them!
Until next time, happy and HEALTHY cooking and EATING!
