A co-worker was celebrating a birthday this week in the office, so you know what that means…it’s time to make Pepperoni and cheese Pull Apart Bread!

7. Bake in preheated oven until the bread is browned and cooked through in the center, 30-40 min
8. Remove from oven, and cool. When cool the bread should flip easily out of the Bundt Pan.

I was extremely proud of how pretty this pull apart bread was out straight out of the oven.  I really took my time with the dough pieces, and didn’t overload the pan like I did last time.  I used an angel food pan, and I think the tube shape helps the bread cook evenly.

The smell of baking pepperoni pizza took over my house, and I am very lucky the bread had to go to the office the next morning.  If I had to wait any longer, my will power to stay strong on Phase 1 of South beach, may have come to screeching halt.

Once again, I forgot the sauce to serve on the side, but I don’t think anyone missed it.  We shared a wonderful assortment of home made dishes for our birthday pot luck, but what I am most happy about, is that there was very little pepperoni bread left over to tempt me.  9 days down for Phase 1, and only 5 left to go!

I was also asked recently by a reader on the original post here, if this bread can be made in anything other than Bundt Pan, since they did not have access to a one.  I would think it could just by decreasing the amount of ingredients.  My suggestion was a loaf pan, or even a round cake pan, and I definitely think I need to experiment this weekend with some alternate pans.

Hope my co-workers are in the mood for more Pepperoni! 🙂

What’s your favorite dish to make and take to a pot luck get together?
