Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread {Happy Anniversary, Mr. P!}


Our first anniversary, I made Crab-Stuffed Shells.

Our second anniversary, I made Pepperoni Pizza Puffs.

This year, Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread.

Are we seeing a trend here?


What can I say? I know the key to Mr. P’s heart: pizza.

This monkey bread has been on my must-make list for the better part of a year. Sure, it interested me but I knew it would be a huge hit with my better half. Our anniversary was the perfect opportunity to spoil him with this one.

Nothing fancy, just some good’ol comfort food enjoyed out on the deck :)


It’s hard to believe we’ve been married 3 years already. Time flies…it really does.

I feel very fortunate to be married to a person I can truly call my best friend. We have so much fun doing the every day stuff like working out, grocery shopping, and playing with Miss Lily.

I poke fun at Mr. Prevention a lot on the blog, but he really is one amazing man. Mr. P is so driven in his career and very passionate about the people and things he cares most deeply about. He enjoys the little things in life and keeps a level head at all times. His sense of humor is very witty and he can always put a smile on my face and make me laugh. I also love that he enjoys exercise and running…and is willing to try just about anything I front of him without too much rebuttal ;)

Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread? No rebuttal there. He just devoured.


I’m not sure what the plan is for tonight, but I’ve decided I’m not cooking. :-D

A HUGE thank you for all of your kind words on our big news. You all warm my heart and it means so much – thank you!

Be well,


  1. Happy Anniversary! This looks delicious! :D

  2. What man doesn’t have pizza as the key to his heart? It’s understandable. It may be the key to mine as well… ha

  7. Happy Anniversary!! Time really does fly – I’ll be married 12 years this year – crazy!

    I’ve only made sweet monkey bread – I’ll definitely have to make this one though :D

  8. Happy anniversary!! It truly is a blessing to be married to your best friend, and someone that can make you laugh! I am as well- our first year anniversary is coming up next month! Monkey bread looks delicious! I think you may have left out a line in your recipe though, on throwing the balls of dough into the bundt pan before you bake it? Do you let the dough balls rise in the bundt pan?

      Andrea: Thank you! :) Happy early Anniversary! The dough balls rise in the pan – I updated the directions. Thanks for catching that!!

  9. Funny, my boyfriend’s birthday is next week and when I asked him what he wanted me to make special that day, his reply was “Monkey bread!”

    Happy anniversary!

  11. This looks so crazy delicious Nicole! My kids would love this. So fun! Happy anniversary. What a sweet tribute to your husband! :D

  12. Aww! Pizzas always have a way to a Man’s heart! :’)

  13. I love the idea of savory monkey bread. The sweet version is a little too sweet for me.

  14. Happy Anniversary to you both! I can’t wait to make this for lunch this weekend. Thanks for another great recipe!

  15. I made this recipe and it was horrible.The dough didnt taste liek pizza dough should.The dough was soft and mushy,worst thing i ever made.The dough has no stability to hold any thing.Should of used my own recipe for pizza crust might have been worth my time and made it taste good this was crap recipe.
