This Hasselback Style Pizza Bread recipe is just another take on two favorites around here.
It really is the perfect appetizer to share.
Hasselback Style Pizza Bread
If you are a fan of the Hasselback Potato, then you probably can understand what this recipe is all about.
The 'Hasselback style' is characterized by horizontal cuts that are often filled with something tasty.
Obviously, we are not using a potato in this recipe.
This recipe works best when we use a bread with a decent crust. A crust that will not soak up all of the liquid thus, allowing the liquid to seep into the cuts that we have made in the bread. The liquid in this case would be pizza or tomato sauce.
This could be the easiest kind of pizza bread that you could ever make.
However, this pizza bread works because, thanks to the cuts that we make, everyone gets a taste of the pizza. The cut that we make allow for easy to pull apart pieces that each have the ingredients on them.
Even thought this recipe does not feature a sugar free dessert, it is one of many appetizer recipes that I offer.However, even if you are looking for tips on how to bake with sugar alternatives, you can check out my guide on baking with sugar alternatives on Amazon.

How to make Hasselback Style Pizza Bread
- Preheat your oven to 400 and prep a pan with parchment paper or similar item.
- Start by making slanted cuts in your bread about 3/4-1" thick. Do not cut all the way through the bread, stopping about 1/2" before the bottom of the bread.
- Spoon the sauce into the cuts and drizzle it over the bread as you go from cut to cut.
- Stuff your toppings into the cuts that you have made.
- Now spread the grated cheese into the cuts made in the bread and over the top of the bread itself. Top this with any additional seasonings.
- Bake this for 7-10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the bread begins to brown.
- Simply pull the pieces (via the cuts) of bread apart to serve.
