Monkey bread, tear and share bread or pull apart bread? Make this tasty pizza sauce filled beauty that will prove name doesn’t matter!

As I most recently have a little time, I was browsing on the web last week. Looking to find fresh, challenging ideas, inspiring recipes that We have never tested before, to amaze my loved ones with. Searching for a while but couldn’t find any interesting things. Just before I thought to give up on it, I found this fabulous and simple dessert simply by luck over Suncakemom. It seemed so tempting

on its snapshot, it required immediate actions.

It was easy to imagine the way it’s created, its taste and just how much my husband will love it. Mind you, it is extremely easy to impress him in terms of cakes. Yes, I’m a blessed one. Or maybe he is.Anyways, I got into the blog and then followed the step by step instuctions which were combined with wonderful snap shots of the process. It just makes life much easier. I could imagine that it’s a slight effort to shoot photographs in the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you will often have gross hands thus i seriously appreciate the time and effort she devote for making this post and recipe easily followed.

With that said I am inspired to present my personal recipes similarly. Appreciate your the idea.

I had been fine tuning the main mixture create it for the taste of my family. I can tell you it turned out a terrific outcome. They loved the flavour, the overall look and enjoyed having a sweet such as this during a lively workweek. They basically wanted even more, a lot more. Hence the next occasion I’m not going to make the same mistake. I’m likely to multiply the quantity to get them happy.

In a kneading bowl measure flour, sliced room temperature butter, egg, milk, water and crumbled fresh yeast.

Knead the mixture well until it’s even and there’s no flour left on the edge of the bowl.

Cover the bowl and leave it in a 68°F – 81°F /20°C – 27°C place to rise for about 45 – 90 minutes depending on temperature. (We can put it in the briefly heated 100°F / 40°C oven. Be careful not to turn the heat higher than that as it would kill the yeast so the dough didn’t rise.)


In the meantime, prepare the filling. Chop tomatoes or simply use pureed tomato, basil, oregano, salt and olive oil in a blender.

Pour it into a saucepan, bring it to boil and simmer it in low-medium heat for about 20 minutes while stirring occasionally. Take it off heat and set it aside. Pouring hot sauce on the dough would make it gooey and so hard to handle that it would ruin our day.


After an hour waiting take dough out of the bowl onto a well-floured work surface. Roll it into a square. Flouring underneath the dough is important as this coating will prevent it to stick down.

Cut the rolled out dough into 4×4 equal squares.

Spoon the preferably room temperature tomato sauce into each small squares.

Quickly make little dough balls out of them by grabbing the opposite corners and pressing them lightly together.

When making the balls, use a plastic scraper to help getting the dough off the worktop if it’s necessary. The dough is quite soft so try not to pull it more than necessary.

Place the dough balls into a pizza tray loose otherwise they could stick together.

Brush the leftover tomato sauce on top.

Finish it with putting grated cheese on top then set the dough aside in a warm place to rest/raise for another 20 minutes.

Put the monkey bread into the 350°F / 180°C preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until cheese gets golden brown.
