I make homemade pizza every week with my Fast Easy Bread Pizza Bundle and I ALWAYS stuff the crust. My children have become so spoiled that if they eat pizza from anywhere else they ask why isn’t the crust stuffed with cheese? They have also been known to say that their mom’s pizza is better then any pizza chain. You have to just love my LOUD girls and their pizza pickyness!
On the movie Despicable Me the trio of orphan girls can only be quieted down when the criminal mastermind finally promises stuffed crust pizza for dinner. If only life were that easy, my 4 girls would be quiet every Friday night! I guess I just need to become a criminal mastermind along with making stuffed crust pizza so all would be quiet in my house.
I can’t teach you how to become a criminal mastermind but I can teach you how to make delicious stuffed crust pizza faster than you can get delivery. First, make Fast Easy Bread basic dough found here and half the dough. Roll out the dough into a circle larger than your pizza stone and place the dough on the stone. I like to use my beautiful homemade black walnut French rolling pin.
Then, Take 5 mozzarella cheese sticks and cut them in half length wise and place them about 1/4 inch from the edge of the stone. Then fold the excess dough over the halved cheese sticks.
For the perfect pizza sauce use one 8 ounce can of tomato sauce and 1 tablespoon of Fast Easy Bread Pizza/Pasta Seasoning.
To avoid a mess just pour the sauce in the center and shake it all around to get it spread out evenly as shown below.
I like to put pepperoni on the sauce and then spread around 2 cups of mozzarella cheese. Then I like to put a few more pepperonis on top for looks.
My final touch is to coat the crust with 1/4 cup olive oil and a tablespoon of the Fast Easy Bread Pizza/Pasta Seasoning. Make a paste and brush it on the edge. You might want to eat the crust first!
Bake for 20 minutes at 425 degrees. Let it cool and then cut and serve to those loud kiddos. I promise a mouth full of this goodness will quiet any crowd temporarily.
Fast Easy Bread Stuffed Crust Pizza is so FAST, EASY and ECONOMICAL that I can make it, bake it, and be eating it before any pizza chain can deliver it! And… I can do all that for a fraction of the cost. So, maybe I am a criminal mastermind after all! I feel I have beaten the system. Join me and make your family oh and ah over Homemade Stuffed Crust Pizza!
