I was inspired by a post for pizza monkey bread online, so I set about to make it - Heather style! I typically make my own pizza dough with my bread maker, but you could buy a ready-to-mix kit with the dough mix. The important part is that you use uncooked dough NOT pre-baked pizza shells.
Pizza dough recipe for my bread maker:
1 cup water
1 Tbsp shortening (I used butter)
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 3/4 cups white flour (I used whole wheat instead)
1 1/4 tsp yeast
Combine all ingredients and set the bread maker to the dough setting. My dough was ready in 2 hours.
Next, roll out the dough as thin a possible. Then cut the dough into 2" squares.
Pizza fixin's - you can use whatever you like inside the pizza balls. Don't overload it or you'll never get the ends sealed.
I used: tomato pizza sauce, cooked spicy sausage bits, caramelized diced onions, red pepper diced and shredded mozzarella cheese.
Next, dip the dough ball in a bowl of melted garlic butter and place in a bundt cake pan. This step ensures that the pizza balls don't stick together when baked.
Bake at 400' for 30min. Turn onto a serving dish. Serve with warm marinara sauce (I used the leftover pizza sauce).
