The crust is the best part of a pizza. It’s crispy, it’s chewy, and it’s got just the right amount of stretch. But what if your pizza had even more crust? You know what I’m saying…the crustiest of all crusts? Today, I’ll show you how to make stuffed pizza — and that crust is now overflowing with delicious toppings.
Pizza crust people, you’ll appreciate this recipe. Pizza crust people will also enjoy this recipe, but cheese people.
Let’s get started.
HOW TO MAKE STUFFED CRUST PIZZA
The homemade pizza crust is an excellent base for stuffed crust pizza. You can either use my standard recipe or go with a whole wheat one — it’ll be delicious either way. The secret is in the dough! It’s so stretchy and soft, which will help you create the perfect stuffed-crust pizza.
The perfect pizza crust hack: use shredded mozzarella or cut fresh mozzarella into thin slices to line the edges of your pizza. If you’re not a fan of shredded, tear off little pieces of string cheese and line the edge for that melty cheese pocket effect.
TIP FOR STUFFED CRUST PIZZA
Here’s the part that can make or break your stuffed crust pizza — if you don’t tuck it in the right, your cheese will fall right out of the crust onto the pizza, and you’ll be left with a sad, flat slab of gooey cheese. So, it must be I’ll tuck in.
- 1/2 recipe homemade pizza crust
- Seven string kinds of cheese, unwrapped
- 1/2 cup (127g) pizza sauce, or more depending on how much you like (homemade or store-bought)
- 1 and 1/2 cups (6oz or 168g) shredded mozzarella cheese
- Big handful of pepperoni (or any other toppings you like)
- Optional: Italian seasoning blend or dried basil for sprinkling on top
#1 Prep the pizza dough through step 5, then preheat the oven to 475°F.
#2 Raise the edge of your dough. This will create a lip all over the edges.
#3 Place the string cheese around the edges of the crust, with a 3/4 inch of space separating each cheese.
#4 Fold the edges of the dough over the string cheese, pinching down to seal. Make sure to fill the string cheese inside the dough perfectly.
#5 Let the dough cool off for some minutes if you’re having trouble sealing it completely.
#6 Top with pizza sauce, the mozzarella cheese, then the pepperoni. Sprinkle lightly with seasoning.
#7 Place inside the oven for about 14-16 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned and the cheese is bubbling.
#8 Remove from the oven. Slice pizza and serve immediately.
#9 Store leftover pizza covered tightly in the refrigerator and heated as you prefer.
Tada! Now you can enjoy your stuffed recipe whenever, wherever, and with whoever you want to enjoy it with. If you have tried this recipe, kindly drop a comment, and please share this recipe with your friends!
