Total Time:
1 hrs


  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 2 16.3 ounce packages refrigerated biscuits (16 total)

  • 1 8 ounce block mozzarella cheese, cut into 32 cubes

  • cup pizza sauce

  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ cup butter, melted

  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

  • 1 3.5-ounce package pepperoni slices

  • 1 cup marinara sauce or ranch dressing


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Generously coat a 10-inch nonstick fluted tube pan with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. With kitchen scissors, cut each biscuit into 2 pieces. Using your hands, flatten each piece into a 3-inch round of dough. Place a cheese cube and 1 teaspoon pizza sauce in the center of each round. Bring the edge of the dough up and around the cheese to form a ball. Pinch the edges of the dough together to seal firmly.

  3. In a small bowl combine Parmesan and garlic powder. Place butter in another small bowl. Dip each ball into the melted butter, then roll it in the Parmesan cheese mixture. Layer coated balls, shredded mozzarella, and pepperoni in the prepared pan. Drizzle with any remaining butter; sprinkle with any remaining Parmesan mixture.

  4. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean (If needed, cover bread with foil the last 15 minutes of baking to prevent overbrowning.) Cool bread in pan for 5 minutes. Run a small rubber spatula around edge of the bread to loosen. Invert pan onto a platter; remove pan. Cool slightly.

  5. Serve warm with marinara and/or ranch for dunking.
