“This is a wonderful pull apart bread with cheesy centers. A delightful accompaniment to a spaghetti dinner, or any other Italian dish. It is also super easy to prepare. My kids love helping me prepare this!”

Original recipe yields 10 servings



  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8 inch cake pan.
  2. Flatten each piece of biscuit dough into a 4 inch circle. Spoon 1 teaspoon of spaghetti sauce into center of each biscuit. Place string cheese piece on the sauce. Fold the dough in half and pinch the seams together tightly to seal in the cheese. It will be in the shape of a half moon. Place the dough in the prepared cake pan starting at the outside edge of the cake pen and and moving towards the center in concentric circles.
  3. Brush the dough with the melted butter and sprinkle with the Italian seasoning, parmesan cheese, and garlic powder over the top of the dough. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

I make this every once and a while for my husband and kids. Instead of string cheese, I use shredded mozzerella and I use my own homemade italian seasoning and homemade marinara. It's always a hit. If you're feeling lazy, this recipe also works if you quarter your biscuits and then layer them in your baking pan, spread the sauce (combined with the spices) over the top of the biscuits (you might need more sauce), then sprinkle with the cheeses. It will also be like Pull Apart Bread, but more like pizza. GREAT way for couponers to use their many canisters of whomp biscuits.



I used to make this for my younger siblings, brings back memories :) One tip I have to maximize the taste is to sprinkle some garlic powder and a bit of whatever seasonings you sprinkle on top of the biscuits (in lieu of Italian seasoning I use basil and parsley) into the greased pan before placing the dough in the pan. Oh and I use homemade sauce and shredded mozzarella, but those are just personal preferences. Just a warning, this flies off the table! ;)



LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this! Not only was it so simple to assemble, but it was beautiful and VERY yummy! I think I ate more of this than our pasta tonight, lol. I did just eyeball the Italian seasoning, just to taste, and added some parsley as well. I could see just making this an appetizer or a side to a nice salad and calling it dinner...that's how much we enjoyed it! I will ALWAYS keep the ingredients on hand for this awesome bread~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
