I was used to the oven baked version of pull-apart bread and I was surprised to find this slow cooker variation. It turned out better than I anticipated. It does take a while to prepare all the pieces, but it's fun, especially when you use different fillings in each piece. I made some with pepperoni, and some with crumbled sausage. I might try making it next time with some ham or bacon in some, and maybe mixing in some diced peppers and onion. It's a nice change of pace from a traditional pizza.

I don't do a lot of baking, but I always seem to have tubes of crescent and dinner rolls in my fridge since they are quick, easy, and always on sale! The kids really like this recipe, and they have a lot of fun helping to assemble this bread, which is pretty much all there is to it. Be creative and add whatever pizza toppings your family likes!
