Palmetto Pull Apart Pizza Bread

palmetto cheese pimento cheese spread recipe

We have to admit that this tasted better than we ever thought it would. Needless to say, it didn’t last long after the pictures were taken. It’s an easy recipe that you can adapt to whatever pizza toppings you prefer. If you make a double recipe for a party, just make sure to test it out to make sure it is cooked thoroughly. You’ll likely need to increase the cook time to 40-50 minutes.

Here is what you’ll need:

1 – 13.8 oz package Pillsbury Classic Pizza Dough
6 oz Palmetto Cheese – Original, Jalapeno or Bacon (we used Bacon)
5 oz package Pepperoni slices (only 1/2 package is needed)
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 Tablespoon Oregano

Marinara or Pizza Sauce for dipping


Preheat oven to 400F
Grease a Bundt pan with pan spray and sprinkle 2 Tablespoons of Parmesan Cheese on the bottom of the pan.

Open and unroll the pizza dough and lay flat.

Spread a 1/2 container of Palmetto Cheese evenly over the dough.

Cut pepperoni slices in half and spread evenly over the Palmetto Cheese.

With a pizza cutter or knife cut the dough into 6 pieces wide by 4 pieces across so you end up with 24 small squares.

You’ll now take each square and line them up around the Bundt pan overlapping each piece. Once you make it around the pan, continue to stack the dough until all of your pieces are in the pan.

Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan Cheese and Oregano. Bake at 400F for 25 minutes.

Now that it’s baked, invert onto a plate and invert again onto your serving tray. If you didn’t want to invert twice, you can put your squares face down when lining the pan but the toppings tend to fall off.

Serve with dipping sauce and enjoy!!!

  1. This looks yummy and perfect for fall gatherings around the tv for college football. Just wondering though, how do you think this would work if you rolled the dough/cheese/pepperoni up jellyroll fashion and baked? Or rolled and sliced into pinwheels? In either case, I am trying this recipe this weekend….love your PC!!!!

    • Hi Connie!
      That would be a great variation on the recipe. You could roll it up with whatever toppings you wanted and then slice it up after it’s baked. If you do pinwheels, baking the slices in muffin tins helps them keep their shape and keeps all the toppings confined if you add too much. If you make it this weekend, please post up a pic of it to our Facebook page. Thank you for being a PC fan, we appreciate it 🙂
