We love the sweet, pull-apart breakfast treat known as Monkey Bread, so—inspired by a suggestion from our Home Cooking community board—we devised this savory version with mozzarella and a hint of fresh chiles. The recipe calls for store-bought pizza dough, so apart from letting the dough rise for an hour and assembling everything, it comes together pretty quickly. Serve the monkey bread warm, with marinara sauce for dipping.
What to buy: Premade pizza dough is available bagged in 14- or 16-ounce portions at well-stocked groceries. If you’d like to make your own, you’ll need two-thirds of our Basic Pizza Dough recipe.
This recipe was featured as part of our Beyond Pepperoni: 6 Amazing Pizza-Dough Transformations project.
