This Bloomin' Pizza Bread is filled with mozzarella and pepperoni. A great appetizer for a potluck!


Literally as soon as I took the Bloomin’ Onion Bread out of the oven my mind started racing of all the different possibilities and ways I could make this style of bread.

I’m always thinking of entertaining so the concept of a bread that everyone can just pull off and eat is interactive and perfect for company.

My first thought was a pizza infused bread because that’s always a crowd favorite and that’s how this baby was born.

So this weekend take a warm piece of sourdough bread glazed with Parmesan and garlic butter, oozing with melted cheese and pepperoni, and dip it in warm pizza sauce! Yum!

Pizza pull apart bread is a great appetizer or quick dinner.
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 25 mins
Servings: 8 servings


  • 1 unsliced round loaf sourdough bread
  • 12-16 ounces mozzarella or Provolone cheese, thinly sliced
  • 1 (3.5 ounce package) pepperoni, halved
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • pizza/marinara sauce for dipping


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cut the bread lengthwise and widthwise without cutting through the bottom crust. This can be a little tricky going the second way but the bread is very forgiving.
  • Place bread on a foil-lined baking sheet and insert cheese slices and pepperoni between cuts. Combine butter, garlic powder, and Italian seasonings. Drizzle or brush over bread with a pastry brush. Sprinkle bread with Parmesan cheese.
  • Wrap bread completely in foil and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Unwrap the bread and bake 10 more minutes, or until cheese is melted and pepperoni is a little crispy.
