Random Recipes - Pizza Ring

I had a tough time deciding which pizza recipe to use because I've been making homemade pizza with my kids since they were very little. When I say homemade pizza it is homemade to us. I've used pizza crust mix, refrigerated pizza crusts, biscuits for bite size pizzas, crescent rolls for pizza braids, etc... We just throw on whatever toppings we have in the frig. I've used pizza sauce but most of the time I use spaghetti sauce because I always have that in the pantry. This recipe is similar to monkey bread but you use pizza toppings. I hope you enjoy it! For more pizza recipes visit Pam over at Random Thoughts!

6 - 8 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cans (12oz) refrigerated flaky biscuits
40 small slices pepperoni
8 oz mozzarella cheese, cut into 20 pieces
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/4 cups pizza sauce, heated (or you can use spaghetti sauce like I do)

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 12-cup fluted tube pan with cooking spray. In small bowl, mix melted butter, Italian seasoning and garlic powder.

2.Separate 1 can of dough into 10 biscuits; press or roll each into 3-inch round. Place 2 pepperoni slices in center of each biscuit round. Top each with piece of mozzarella cheese. Bring dough up around filling; press edge to seal and shape each into ball. Roll in butter mixture; place 10 balls in sprayed pan.

3.Sprinkle dough balls with Parmesan cheese. Repeat with remaining can of biscuits, placing balls over balls in pan. Pour remaining butter mixture over top.

4.Bake at 350°F. for 33 to 38 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Gently loosen bread from sides of pan. Place large heatproof plate upside down over pan; turn plate and pan over. Remove pan. Serve warm with warm pizza sauce for dipping.

I could use your help. I am trying to survey as many women as possible to find out what ten struggles they face as a Christian woman. If you have a few minutes, I would love your input on my blog in regards to the ten struggles that Christian women face. Thank you!

Please pass this on to your friends as well.
