Stuffed Crust Pepperoni Pizza

 Stuffed Crust Pepperoni Pizza

I love how creative these pizza places are when it comes to making every kind of crust you can think of. You can get thin crust, thick crust, and there's even the new garlic knot crust and the Tater Tot crust!  I particularly like the cheese filled crust and decided I can be just as creative and clever and make it at home!  Here's my version of homemade stuffed crust pizza.

Stuffed Crust Pepperoni Pizza

1 round of refrigerated pizza dough
1/2 cup of your favorite pizza sauce
1 package mozzarella string cheese (about 10 pieces)
20 slices pepperoni
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 x 2 baking sheet with non-stick spray.  Roll out your dough into a triangle shape and then stretch it to fit your baking pan with about an inch overhang all the way around.  

Place your string cheese pieces all along the inside edges of your dough. You may have to cut some pieces to make them all fit.

Fold the dough over the cheese and press down the edges to seal. Make sure your cheese is completely covered all the way around. 

Next, add your favorite pizza sauce on the bottom of our dough. Spread it out to the edges of the crust.  Add as much sauce as you like. Cover sauce with one cup of the mozzarella cheese (or as much as you like). 

Add the pepperoni or any other toppings you'd like.  Sausage is another favorite of mine. 

Then cover the pepperoni with the remaining cup of mozzarella cheese. The more cheese the merrier....use as much as you want! 

Brush the edge of your dough with melted butter.

Then sprinkle dough with Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. 

Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 to 18 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.

Allow to cool slightly before chowing down!  Cheese inside crust will be hot so be careful.
