Pepperoni and Mozzarella Pull Apart Bread

Certainly! Here’s a simple recipe for Pepperoni and Mozzarella Pull Apart Bread:


  • 1 loaf of Italian or French bread
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup pepperoni slices
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Marinara sauce for dipping (optional)


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Using a sharp bread knife, make diagonal cuts about 1 inch apart across the bread, being careful not to cut all the way through. Rotate the bread and make diagonal cuts in the opposite direction to create a grid pattern.
  • Place the bread on a large piece of aluminum foil.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, garlic powder, and dried oregano.
  • Using a brush, generously coat the bread with the butter mixture, making sure to get into the cuts.
  • Stuff the cuts with shredded mozzarella cheese and pepperoni slices. You can alternate between cheese and pepperoni to ensure an even distribution.
  • Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the top.
  • Wrap the bread in aluminum foil and place it on a baking sheet.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted.
  • If you like, you can open the foil for the last 5 minutes to allow the top to get golden brown and crispy.

  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley for added color and flavor.
  • Let the bread cool for a few minutes before serving. Serve with tomato sauce, if desired.
