Frequently Asked Questions
My dough is sticking together- what can I do?
As you place the dough into the bundt pan tear it into bite sized pieces. Bread dough will stick together more than the canned biscuits, but the result is a much fluffier flavorful monkey bread.
Can I use other pizza toppings?
Sure! I advise pre-cooking any raw veggies or sausage before adding it to the bread.
I can’t find mini pepperoni- what can I use?
Regular sized will work just fine. Just cut the pepperoni into quarters.
Can I cook this is a 9×13 baking dish?
Yes, but the bake time will be less. Start with 20 minutes and check the bread before increasing the bake time. The top should be browned and bread cooked completely.
How do I warm the bread if I make it in advance?
I place mine on a plate and warm it in the microwave for about 45 seconds.
