  • 2 cans refrigerator pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup pesto
  • 3 cups mozzarella shredded
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 8 oz dry salami chopped
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • Marinara or pizza sauce for dipping


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Set aside a greased bundt pan.
  • Cut the pizza dough into 2" cubes and place into large bowl. Add remaining ingredients to bowl and blend to coat all using your hands.
  • Distribute evenly into bundt pan and lightly drop on counter to shift all contents in pan without pressing with hands.
  • Bake for 28 minutes until the top is golden and crunchy.
  • Allow bread to cool 5 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, slide down into side and go around the cooked dough to loosen. To remove, place plate on top of bundt pan and carefully invert both pan and plate. Next, place serving plate on top and invert again if you want the top crunchy side. 
  • Sprinkle top with chopped basil and Parmesan, if desired. Serve with your favorite marinara or pizza sauce for dipping.
