Holiday Pull-Apart Bread

Lauren Makk

 

Ingredients:

Mixing bowl

Cream cheese

Spinach

5-6 Artichokes

Knife

Bacon

Sun dried tomatoes

Garlic powder

Salt & pepper

Red pepper flakes

Mozzarella

Parmesan

Butter

Parsley

Pre made pizza dough

Pizza cutter

Baking sheet

Brush

 

 

Directions:

 

For the Filling:

1. Add room temperature (softened) cream cheese and chopped spinach to a bowl. You want to make sure your spinach is well-strained. Dice the artichokes and add them to the bowl.

2. Add the bacon and sun dried tomatoes to the bowl. You want to finely chop your bacon and the sun dried tomatoes so that they incorporate completely into the other ingredients.

3. Mix the ingredients in the bowl.

4. Add 2 tbsp of mayonnaise to the mixture.

5. Add 1 tbsp garlic, 1 tspn salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes to taste and combine.

6. Throw in a couple handfuls of parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese, mix together, and set aside.

 

For the Pull-Apart Bread:

(Preheat oven to 375 degrees)

1. Spread out your pre-made dough onto a baking sheet.

2. From one of the bottom corners, cut the dough up in a diagonal line to the top of the baking sheet. Do the same thing from the other bottom corner (both diagonal lines should meet at the top in the center creating 3 triangles of dough).

3. Set aside the 2 outside triangle pieces of dough. You’ll be left with the center, larger triangle on the baking sheet.

4. In the remaining triangle, spread a generous layer of the spinach artichoke dip with a spatula.

5. Lay the 2 dough triangles that you have sitting aside on top of the triangle on the baking sheet (they should almost completely cover the filling).

6. With a fork, crimp the edges of the entire triangle (which is now the shape of a Christmas tree!).

7. Make slits every 1 ½ inches from the bottom to the top of the tree, making sure not to cut across the middle. These will be the branches of the tree!

8. Twist each branch a time or 2, using a knife or pizza cutter along the way to help clean up loose edges.

9. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until golden brown.

10. Add garlic powder and parsley to a cup of melted butter. Combine.

11. Spread the butter mixture across the top of the baked tree and finish with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese as desired.

12. Serve with marinara and enjoy!
