Guest Post: Stuffed Pizza Balls/Pull Apart Bread in a Skillet by Carmy

We have a first-time guest in the kitchen! Please join us in welcoming Carmy of, who is bringing some of our favourite flavours to the table. We have no doubt that this one will be a new favourite, and it’s just in time for the weekend!! Enjoy.

Hey there! I’m Carmy, from where I blog about all things food, fitness, and travel! I’m a recent grad from the University of Toronto and have transitioned into recipe development, social media management, and food photography thanks to my little corner of the internet. Today I’m very excited to be sharing this recipe here as pizza is my go-to comfort food.
I just love how versatile mushrooms are – I almost always have some in my fridge as it’s so easy to just throw them into anything you make from one pan breakfast dishes to sneaking them inside burgers! Growing up, one of the only “healthy” foods that my parents could get me to eat were mushrooms. So it’s no surprise that my go-to toppings for pizzas usually includes mushrooms. I mean you can’t feel guilty about eating an entire pizza by yourself if there’s mushrooms on it right?

One of the fun things we would do to pass time while hungry was to make fun pizza creations and one of them were pizza balls! They were my favourite and by far the most entertaining to make. Below is a modified version recipe of that so you can make it at home!

Stuffed Pizza Balls/Pull Apart Bread in a Skillet 
Pizza balls. Pizza pull apart bread. Pizza in a skillet. Either way, pizza pizza pizza! The perfect game day snack or just a fun way to make your next pizza.

Prep time: 20 mins | Bake time: 30 mins

• 1 tube of biscuit dough (10)
• 1 bag of pepperoni (or 30-40 pepperoni)
• 1 bag of shredded cheese
• ¼ block of mozzarella cheese (70g), cubed
• 1 cup of mushrooms

1. Heat up the oven to 400F
2. Cut in half the biscuits dough.
3. Flatten each piece and wrap up your stuffing of choice in each piece of dough (pepperoni, mushroom, cheese cube).
4. Place each ball into the skillet.
5. Place extra pepperoni, cheese, and mushrooms on top of the pizza balls.
6. Pop it into the oven for 30 minutes. If you want to put in extra cheese/toppings on top, pull it out of the oven after the pizza balls have been cooked and put on the additional toppings.

Do not over top the pizza balls or it’ll prevent the dough from cooking all the way through. Put on additional toppings afterwards.
I set aside one piece of biscuit dough to use to fill after rips when shaping the pizza balls.
