Pull-Apart Pizza {Football Friday}


I love pizza. I could eat it every day.  I especially like to eat pizza when we are watching football. Most of the time we have a lot of food at our tailgates, so eating a whole slice of pizza really limits my options. I like to sample everything and not fill up on one thing. This Pull-Apart Pizza is perfect for tailgating! Everyone can grab a little bite-sized piece and not fill up on pizza. 

This transports easily and is great for a crowd. It is fun to eat and tastes great warm or at room temperature.  This didn't last long out our tailgate. It was one of the first things gone!  We've made this several times. While it is great for tailgating, we also like this for a quick lunch or dinner!





Pull-Apart Pizza
16 servings
(Printable Recipe)


  • 2 (11 oz) packages refrigerated French bread dough
  • 1 1/2 cups pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • pizza toppings

Preheat oven to 400. Lightly grease a round pizza pan or pizza stone.

Place one loaf of refrigerated dough on cutting board. Cut dough in half lengthwise. Slice each dough half crosswise into 16 slices for a total of 32 bread dough slices. Repeat with remaining dough.  You will have a total of 64 bread dough slices when you are done.

Arrange dough slices on pizza pan or pizza stone. Top with pizza sauce, mozzarella and pizza toppings.

Bake 14–16 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

  2. What brand of pizza sauce do you buy? So far I can't seem to find a decent one.

    2. Tomato sauce, garlic powder and italian seasonings works for a good sauce as well as the jar or pkg type.

  3. This is a great idea! I don't make pizza that much because, well, we live in New York. But, this looks like a great recipe for some of impending snowy weekends.

  5. Lol I just tried this recipe and you know what I ended up with after 15 to 18 minutes a baking a bunch of gloppy pizza dough with top pings all over it. It would have been nice in the directions if you had mentioned to cook the dough pieces first. I hope I can salvage this mess with some extra cooking... if not, it's a waste of a lot of time and money for the ingredients.
    Directions are supposed to be complete.

  7. Sounds like a great, easy recipe; the kind I like! What kind of refrigerated french bread do you buy and where can I find it...I don't ever remember seeing it at my grocery store? Also, the pepperoni looks super small in diameter...what kind and where do you buy that, also? Are we supposed to bake the dough first, as one of the posters suggested above?
    Thanks in advance and for the recipe...can't wait to try it!

    1. I used pillsbury French bread - it is near the crescent rolls. The pepperoni is mini pepperoni by Hormel. It is near the regular sized pepperoni. I did not bake the crust first. I did it per the instructions above.
