  4. Place 1/3 of the bread pieces into the bundt pan. If the bread is sticking together tear it back into pieces as you go.

  5. Top the bread with 1/3 the pepperoni, 1/3 the mozzarella, and a tablespoon of Parmesan cheese.

  6. Repeat this process twice more.

  7. Top the bread with 1 additional tablespoon of Parmesan cheese and the remaining dried parsley.

  8. Place pan on a cookie sheet and place uncovered into the oven. Bake for 35 minutes.

  9. Remove bread from oven and, gently, use a butter knife to pull bread from the sides. Remove from the pan and place on a plate.

  10. Warm the pizza sauce in the microwave for a few seconds. Serve the bread with the dipping sauce.

Recipe Notes
