Have you ever tried the Rhodes frozen bread dough? It's AMAZING!! It's delicious baked the traditional way, or you can thaw your way to a yummy shortcut!
Today, I thawed two loaves to make our easy, kid approved dinner. The first is a chicken and Swiss baked sandwich. It's pretty self-explanatory (and I did a post previously about this customizable meal) but feel free to comment below if you need step-by-step instructions.

The second dish-- the feature of today's post-- is pizza pull-apart bread. Are you ready for the simple awesomeness of this recipe?? Well, here you go:
- Thaw a loaf of frozen bread using the method of your choice. I didn't plan very far in advance, so I used the speed method.
- Pregeat your oven to 350.
- When the dough is nice and fluffy, roll it into ropes and cut it into bite sized pieces.
- Pour a cup of the tomato sauce of your choice (I use whatever pizza or pasta sauce we have on hand) into a medium mixing bowl and stir the dough pieces in. - Add another cup of sauce to the mix, along with a cup or 2 of your favorite cheese (I used a mozzarella and Parmesan blend) and stir until the dough is well coated.
- Optional: add cut-up pieces of pepperoni or other pizza toppings and fold in or sprinkle over the top after the dough is in the pan. You can also add extra sauce and/or cheese to you pre-baked creation (can you ever really have too much cheese?).
- Baking in a tube-shaped pan works best for even cooking, so I used a bunny pan. If you don't have a similar pan, you can set a small oven-proof bowl in the center of whatever baking dish you use, and spoon the dough in around it.
- Bake for 30 minutes, or until the top is browning and the cheese is bubbly.
- Remove from oven and let it cool for 5 minutes before serving.
