Recipe by weekend cooker

An adapted recipe that was given to me by one of the teachers at the school I volunteer for. Very easy to prepare, and a nice treat for the kids.

This pizza monkey bread was really tasty -- loved the spicy flavor from the sausage and the combination of the bbq sauce (used Sweet Baby Ray's) and the pizza sauce. I used green onions vs. regular and if you are making this for the kids -- you could substitute a crumbled breakfast sausage if you don't feel they would like the Italian sausage. For some reason, I could not get the roll tight enough, so I baked it whole and then cut it into pieces on a pizza stone. Will definitely make this again. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, May, 2014.
