Canadian Bacon Pizza Monkey Bread

I was looking this past weekend for dinner ideas again and somehow found this awesome recipe that originated from Annie’s Eats.  Annie makes hers in baking dish, but site that I got this from used a bundt pan.  And I know the kids would have more fun putting this in a funky pan than just using a cake pan.  Get ready to have yourself some fun!

I made some slight changes to the recipe, but followed pretty close.


  • Olive Oil Cooking Spray
  • garlic salt
  • 2 cans of Pillsbury Pizza dough
  • 6 oz mozzarella cheese, cut into small cubes (you’ll need ~48 pieces) (I used fat free)
  • package of canadian bacon
  • 2-3 cups marinara sauce, warmed, for serving


Spray bundt pan with cooking oil and sprinkle pan with garlic salt.

Pull off large marble-sized balls of dough and flatten (~2/3 of an ounce, a kitchen scale makes this very easy). Top with a slice of canadian bacon and cube of mozzarella.


Wrap the dough around the canadian bacon and cheese, pinching well to seal.

Very lightly spray the pizza balls and sprinkle with more garlic salt and place into the bundt pan.

Repeat until all of the dough is used.

Cover and let sit for 30 minutes, while preheating the oven to 400.

Bake for ~35 minutes, until the top is very brown.

Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes.

Turn out onto a platter and serve with warmed marinara sauce for dipping.

When I bring the kids in the kitchen with me to cook, it has to be something they are going to enjoy making and have even more fun eating it!  And this came out of the oven prettier than ever.  The kids are quite proud of this one!!  Finding a nice little surprise in each bite is awesome to them (ok to me too!!).

Well done kids.  We will be making this again and again.  Even the picky eaters will like this one!!

Have an awesome day.
