Pizza Monkey Bread

Author: Gaby

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 2/3 cup Pecorino Romano cheese grated
  • 3 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 5 scallions chopped
  • 10 basil leaves chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 cup marinara or pizza sauce

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, combine the bread flour, all purpose flour and salt. Set aside.
  • Combine the active yeast and water in a mixing bowl fitted with a dough hook. Let it sit for a few minutes to make sure your yeast is working. Add the sugar and mix for a quick second. Add the flour mixture in batches, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Let the dough hook work its magic for 5-6 minutes until the dough has come together into a large mass. Remove the dough to an oiled bowl and let rise for 60 minutes.
  • After an hour, remove the dough from the bowl and cut into small 1/2 inch cubes. Dust with flour to prevent them from sticking together. Set aside.
  • Butter and flour 6 small bundt pans. (You could also use a large bundt pan)
  • Melt the butter in a small bowl.
  • Combine the cheese, herbs, salt/pepper and garlic in a large bowl. Add the melted butter and mix together with a spoon. Toss in the cut dough and make sure it all gets a coat of the butter mixture. Start layering the cubes into the bundt pans until they are 3/4 of the way full. Let sit for 30 minutes for the dough to rise a little more and while they are rising, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place bundt pans into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until the bread and cheese is golden brown. Serve with warmed marinara sauce or pizza sauce.
