4 savoury monkey bread recipes

Monkey bread is made up of many small pieces of dough baked together with a topping. It first appeared in Hungary and was originally a sweet pastry, but nowadays you can find both sweet and savoury versions. It's called monkey bread because you eat it by pulling it apart with your hands.

Here are four different variations using pizza dough and flavoured with different herbs, cheeses and dips. If you don't want to make your own pizza dough from scratch, you can always use store bought pizza dough instead. Check them out below and start baking!
