This Pepperoni pull apart bread is totally addicting, and it is be absolutely perfect for football season. Whether you serve this as an appetizer on game day, or paired with a salad for a quick meal. Because of course a big ole salad will make you feel less guilty indulging in this cheesy goodness right? That’s what I thought.
Last year I made it for a Super Bowl party, it was great because I did it the day before and then just tossed it in the oven to bake right before halftime. It was inhaled, I mean seriously gone in seconds. Next time I will definitely make two. So if you love bread with lots of ooey gooey cheesy, garlicky goodness…then you will love this.
So there you have it, make this yummy bread for your next get together, and watch how quickly it disappears.
