My Loaded Stuffed Crust Pizza is the epitome of cheesy pizza loaded with lots of good stuff. It’s dense and has cheese pulls, and is as satisfying as it gets. No takeout compares.
I love a good stuffed crust pizza.
I make pizza all the time – deep pan in my cast iron, thin crusts on a cookie sheet, and a nice in between crust on my pizza stone. For some reason, I haven’t thought to make my own stuffed crust; I think maybe I saw it as cumbersome or difficult, but it’s not at all.
How is Stuffed Crust Pizza Made?
It’s basically cutting cold Mozzarella cheese in strips (or using cheese sticks) and wrapping the edges of your crust around them.
I was concerned about the cheese oozing out during baking, but it was fine.
No cheese was lost in the making of this pizza.
For the toppings, I went with what is more than likely a meat lover’s combination. Pepperoni, salami, ground beef with onions, peppers and olives. It was outstanding.
The cheese is a mix of provolone and muenster (my favorite for pizza) and of course, mozzarella, with most of the cheese intentionally layered on the toppings as opposed to underneath. I don’t know why; I just like it that way.
I honestly don’t know why more people enjoy making their own pizzas at home.
I love the ability to control the thickness, toppings, sauce, etc. without being at the mercy of strange people that I don’t know putting their nasty hands all over my food (sorry for that visual). It’s also fun to do; kinda therapeutic.
