Easy Pizza Bread – perfect solution for those days when you are craving pizza but don’t want the fuss!
It’s October, friends! Did you pick up pumpkins for your jack-o-lanterns? We did yesterday! It was so much fun! This year the youngest one was able to pick out his own which was a big deal for our little guy. Now the kids are deciding on the designs. We are heading into a very busy time for us. We have a big family celebration coming up (can’t wait to share all about it soon!!) and I am in need of easy lunches and dinners.
Enter Easy Pizza Bread.
There is “easy” in the title. And pizza. And bread. So pretty much a win win win idea. Because who doesn’t like pizza or bread or easy, am I right?
Our Easy Cheesy Bread has lots of fans. We are obsessed with it and can’t help but keep making new versions of it. Keeping the cheesy gooey goodness, of course!
Today we are giving you another option. Nothing crazy complicated here. Just crazy crazy good! This pizza bread has everything you love on your favorite pepperoni pizza: sauce, cheese, pepperoni and olives.
This is such a fun twist on pizza, kids will be happy to help! Perfect solution for busy days and everyone will love it!
