Pie is one of my all time favorite desserts. Cream pies are the best of all. I have a super easy pie recipe for you and my friends who don't cook or bake. It requires simply layering a few ingredients and the results are so so delicious. These little mini key lime pies will become a family favorite. They are perfect for a wedding shower, birthday luncheon with friends or any occasion really! You only need 4 ingredients and there is no stirring, mixing or baking required. Kids will love to help you make these pies and the clean up is a breeze.
Are you ready for this!?!

Gather your supplies. Have you seen those cute mini graham cracker crusts from Keebler®? They are in the baking supplies lane. Get a 4 pack of Oikos® Key Lime Greek Yogurt and a can of original Reddi-wip® whipped cream both in the dairy lane. They add a pint of fresh strawberries and a lime to your cart. I got all these items at my local Walmart.

BEST Hasselback Cheesy Pizza Bread with Ranch Butter

TGIF and it's Friday Night Pizza Night.  Pizza on Friday night has been one of my family traditions since my kids were little. We would eat pizza in some form and sit down to watch a movie together.
This recipe for Hasselback Cheesy Pizza Bread came from our love of eating pizza and cheesy bread. My kids always love to dip their pizza in ranch too. And with those two loves, I created the best Friday night pizza in front of a movie food.
This is also a great food for parties or for when you need something good to eat in a few minutes. It sure beats a frozen pizza any day and it's quicker! It takes 10-12 minutes from start to finish.

This recipe could easily be adapted as a Hawaiian Pizza by replacing the pepperoni for pineapple and canadian bacon or a supreme pizza bread by adding green peppers, onions and sausage.

Party Idea:
Make an assortment of Hasselback Cheesy Pizza breads with different topping just like your favorite pizza toppings for an easy to eat party food.

I showed this demo of Sha' and I making it on Facebook LIVE.

Join me every Friday night with our Foodie Friday Recipes that are quick and easy for your weekend!

Hasselback Cheesy Pizza Bread Recipe

  • 1 loaf of good french bread
  •  2 cups of shredded cheese
  • sliced pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of ranch dressing powder mix
  • 1 jar of your favorite pasta red sauce
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Slice french bread stopping just before you slice all the way through about 1 inch apart then cut down the center of the bread lengthwise. Be careful not to cut all the way through the bread. 
Next, melt butter in microwave just until completely softened. Add just less than a tablespoon of ranch dip powder mix and stir. Brush ranch butter over the top of the french bread and in between each layer of the bread.
Next, stuff cheese in between each layer.  Finally add a couple of pieces of pepperoni to each section. Top of the loaf with a sprinkling of cheese and bake in the oven at 425 degrees for 6 minutes.
In medium sized bowl warm up the pasta sauce for dipping.
YUM! I promise this stuff is addicting. Everyone will LOVE IT!
