This five cheese stuffed crust pizza is a cheese lover’s dream!
Around here we are big pizza lovers! We have it at least once a week; whether it’s pizza bites for lunch, or a Pretzel Crust Pizza at dinner, we sure do love our pizzas. We used to go to Little Caesars to get $5 pizzas or Domino’s during the week for their $7 pizzas. But not only was that getting to be a bit expensive but they just didn’t have the same taste as homemade.
Last year I shared with Tastefully Frugal readers a month-long series; Friday Pie Day. We had everything from taco pizza to our five pound supreme pizza, even a vegetarian pizza; but one pizza that we hadn’t tried yet was a stuffed crust pizza. I always loved stuffed crust pizza when I was growing up and we had dinner with my dad a few weeks ago, he bought a stuffed crust and it reminded me how good they are. So of course I had to try to make my own.
My first attempt was an epic fail. It tasted good but the crust was way too thick. The second time around I cut the string cheese in quarters instead of halves and cut off the excess crust before I cooked it. That did the trick! This pizza is so ooey-gooey good it hardly lasted 10 minutes between myself, my husband and my two boys. We will definitely be adding it to our regular routine.
- 1 Pizza Dough (you can use this recipe: http://tastefullyfrugal.org/2014/08/be-a-part-of-the-next-great-food-trend.html or any store bought)
- 4 string cheese
- 1 cup pizza sauce
- 2 cups pizza blend cheese (3 cheeses in one)
- ½ cup mozzarella cheese
- Preheat oven to 425F
- Roll pizza dough out 1 in larger than your pizza pan.
- Cut string cheese in half vertically and then horizontally.
- Line cut pieces of string cheese along outside diameter of pizza leaving enough dough to be folded over.
- Fold over dough and leave just enough to tuck under string cheese. Cut off any excess dough.
- Brush dough with pizza sauce.
- Top with cheeses.
- Bake for 17-25 minutes until crust is golden brown.
