What's your Take?

Kids love monkey bread! It's a delicious snack that's super fun to eat (who doesn't love pull-apart breads?!) and allows for great flexibility and creative variations. You can make it savory or sweet; try Whole Wheat Monkey Bread, Pizza Monkey Bread, or Chocolate Swirl Monkey Bread! Just use your imagination.

What you'll need

  • two (11 ounce) packages Pillsbury Thin Crust Pizza Dough (22 ounces total)
  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese, room temperature
Helpful Tip:


  • Mix one teaspoon of cinnamon into your sugar mixture before sprinkling over the top for a nice little twist.
  • Don't have fresh berries? Skip the sugar in the filling and swap in ¾ cup of fresh jam instead.
