Stuffing Method

Ø  For the stuffing, you can choose to use a variety of cheese options (be sure to use as much cheese are required for your pizza). Ideally, string cheese is a great pick as it has even sides that are perfect for stuffing your crust. However, you can also thinly slice fresh mozzarella cheese or create a thin pile of grated mozzarella cheese. Place the cheese (any kind) around the edges of the rolled dough and tightly tuck the edges. Be sure to press down firmly but not too much, or it will flatten the edges instead. At this point, you can even choose to brush the stuffed crust with garlic butter and a sprinkle of dried herbs.


Ø  Lastly, finish off your pizza just as you normally would with marinara or tomato sauce, pepperoni, grated cheese, olives, and vegetables, and bake for 14-15 minutes until the crust is lightly browned and the cheese has melted. If you are not using a pizza oven, the good idea is to rotate the side of the dish halfway through to ensure an even bake. ENJOY!

There are several variations with stuffed crust pizza. You can choose to use a mix of choices that includes feta and mozzarella cheese, mayonnaise and mozzarella, or even stuffing in some kebabs for a change instead of the traditional cheese. Either way, stuffed crust pizza is the real deal! Try this today and impress your friends and family with this delicious pizza recipe.
