Pull apart bread is on my to bake list this year! I’ve had pull apart bread once or twice in my life. I feel like this wasn’t a popular thing where I live when I was a kid. I’ve only been hearing about pull apart bread and monkey bread and such only for the last 3 or 4 years. It still hasn’t caught on in my circles, but I have had the pleasure of having both a sweet and a savory pull apart bread. I must say that as much as I love sweet (she types with a Jolly Rancher in her mouth), I loved the savory even more. It felt far more like a meal, and I definitely ate more than I should have. No regrets.
Regretting food is something that I no longer do. It’s a pretty nice feelings. No more guilt surrounding food. The only food I regret now is bad food. Like, not bad for you food. Food that I don’t enjoy putting in my body due to taste or texture or both. I don’t really know how I got over my more than less disordered eating other than just deciding that I don’t care anymore. All those people in high school no longer matter. My peers can’t say anything anymore that really hurts. It’s pretty liberating. Eat what you like!! Eat how much of that “guilty pleasure” you want so long as you don’t feel miserable afterwards… like Taco Bell. I love that, but it makes me feel terrible. So that’s one of my food regrets when I eat it, hahaha.
This pizza pull apart bread is very similar to what I have had. It’s going to be great. Pull apart breads are so great for hosting parties and such. I especially like them when there are kids. Kids can be picky. If you give them something with the word pizza in the name, they’re usually game. This is a great recipe! Try it out!
