Your next party trick: pull-apart pizza bread

Add some sass to your next party (time to move beyond the chip ’n dip routine, we say) and try this easy pull-apart pizza bread – this cheese-stuffed treat will have your guests begging for more.


Cheesy pull-apart pizza rolls


  1. Yeast: 2 x 7 g sachets
  2. Lukewarm water: 2 ½ cups
  3. Sugar: 1 tablespoon
  4. Flour: 720 g
  5. Mozzarella: 400 g, cubed 
  6. Cheddar: 400 g, cubed 
  7. Woolworths Tomato Paste with Soffritto: 3 tablespoons
  8. Olive oil: 1⁄4 cup


  1. Mix the yeast, water and sugar and set aside for a few minutes. Turn out the flour onto a clean surface or into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the yeast mixture. Using a fork or blunt knife, slowly stir the liquid into the walls of the flour and start making a dough.
  2. As it comes together, knead the dough well for 10 minutes or until it is smooth and springy. Cover and set aside until double in size.
  3. Tear off balls of dough and stuff each ball with a cube of mozzarella or Cheddar.
  4. Arrange in a circular pattern, similar to a wreath, on an oiled baking tray and leave to rise again until double in size.
  5. Mix the soffritto and olive oil and brush onto the dough. Bake at 200°C for 30–40 minutes, or until just light golden and cooked through. Serve hot.
