Recipe type: Main dish
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 medium white onion, thinly sliced
- 26 oz pizza dough (735 g)
- ½ cup bacon, chopped (110 g)
- ¼ cup unsalted butter, ½ stick, melted (55 g)
- 8 oz brie cheese, 1 wheel (225 g)
- 1 fresh chives, chopped, for garnish
- broccoli floret, steamed, for serving
- baby potato, boiled, halved, for serving
- mushroom, sauteed, for serving
- Preheat the oven to 400˚F (200˚C). Prepare a 9-inch (22 cm) round cake pan with a 3½- inch (8 cm) ramekin in the center and set nearby.
- Melt the butter in a large pan over medium-low heat. Add the onion and sauté until caramelized, stirring occasionally for about 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.
- Take a golf ball-sized piece of pizza dough and flatten it out with your fingers. Stuff the dough with about a teaspoon of caramelized onions and cooked bacon. Close the dough ball by pinching at the seam and roll into a ball in your hands. Repeat with the remaining dough and fillings.
- Dip each stuffed ball in the melted butter. Place the stuffed balls in the prepared cake pan, stacking them around the ramekin.
- Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to 350˚F (180°C). Remove the ramekin with tongs (it will be hot!).
- Place the wheel of brie in the center. Return the pan to the oven for 10 minutes more, or until the brie is soft.
- Brush the monkey bread with more melted butter and sprinkle the bread and cheese with chives. Serve with vegetables like broccoli, potatoes, and mushrooms for dipping.
