This is a neat looking bread to make a grand presentation and it is so fun to make. I had all three boys helping me make this cheesy bread last night.
Pull Apart Bread Cheese Bread
2 pounds pizza or bread dough ( homemade or store bought)
8 ounces cubed mozzarella cheese (cut into 1 inch squares)
4 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Mix garlic powder into melted butter and using a pastry brush,brush the bundt pan with some of the butter. Take small pieces of dough and roll and pat into flat circles. Wrap a piece of cheese with the dough and place into bundt pan. After each layer of dough balls brush them with the melted butter. Continue making cheese and dough balls until all dough is used. Then brush the top layer with melted butter. Let bread rise in warm place for 30 minutes. I like to turn the oven on for 5 minutes and then turn off for my rising place. Bake the bread for 20-30 minutes at 400 degrees or until top is brown. Let bread cool 5 minutes and take a knife around edges of pan to release the bread. Turn pan over on a plate to release the bread. Enjoy as is or with pasta sauce for dipping. To eat the bread, you just pull off pieces.
For meat eaters you can add small pepperoni pieces to the bread dough balls and make it a pizza bread. What occasion would you make this bread for?
