Monkey bread pizza and a Frozen scavenger hunt

On Friday nights at the Wood's we all look forward to pizza or Chinese food and a movie. We were getting a little bit sick of regular old pizza, so I found some new fun recipes. One that caught my eye was monkey bread pizza! Yum! I love breakfast monkey bread, now for dinner, awesome! I found the recipe here...
Of course I tweaked it a little...

The first time I made this I made it in a bundt pan. It made waaayyy too much and it was almost impossible to get out even though I greased that sucker up pretty good.
You need:
A round cake pan
1 roll of Grands biscuits
pepperonis, mini or regular sized just cut into halves
2 cups shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup of shredded Parmesan
1/4 olive oil
1 tbsp of Italian seasoning
1 tsp garlic salt

Pre-heat oven to 350 and grease the cake pan
1. Quarter each of the 8 biscuits in the can
2. Cut up or add the pepperoni
3. Mix the oil and spices together and toss with the dough and pepperoni
4. Stir in the cheese and spread out in the pan

5. Pop in the oven for 30-45 minutes. The original recipe says to cook for 30 minutes, but our dough was still a little raw. So we ended up cooking it for about an extra 15 minutes.

6. Run a knife around the edge of the pan after it's out of the oven and flip upside down on a plate.

We like to dip our gooey cheesy goodness in marinara sauce and enjoy a movie while we eat! This week it was Frozen, again. We can't stop watching this movie, it's always on, sometimes just in the background.
The same day we made our monkey bread, we were rained in for the afternoon. So I found the cutest quiet fun thing to do with Callie, while Kellen took a nap.

It is a Frozen scavenger hunt! Here is the link...

All you do is print out the cards and then hide them around the house, using the clues to guide you. At the end of the scavenger hunt, I hid Callie's allowance for the week, but it would be super fun to hide some Frozen related prizes!

Callie had a blast trying to figure out the hints and you have to really know the songs from the movie to be able to get around the clues. It was way time consuming and fun on a rainy day!
