Recipe Development, Photography and Food Styling by: Lauren Grant


8 ounces pepper Jack cheese, shredded (2 cups), divided
¼ cup grated Parmesan
¼ cup Sir Kensington’s Classic Mayonnaise
1 shallot, finely chopped
¼ cup finely chopped parsley
¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Kosher salt and black pepper
1 pound cold pizza dough, cut into 1-inch pieces
Nonstick vegetable oil spray


  1. Combine 1⅔ cups pepper Jack, Parmesan, mayonnaise, shallot, parsley, and red pepper flakes in a medium bowl; season with ½ teaspoon each salt and black pepper. Add dough pieces, a few at a time, to cheese mixture and gently toss to coat.
  2. Coat a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with nonstick spray. Arrange dough in a single layer in prepared skillet; scrape any excess cheese mixture from bowl over dough. Cover skillet with a kitchen towel and let rise until slightly puffy, 45 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat oven to 375°F (190ºC) with rack set in middle position. Bake monkey bread until top is lightly browned and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle remaining ⅓ cup pepper Jack cheese over bread; continue baking until edges are golden brown and firm and cheese is melted, 10–15 minutes more. Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce!
