Simple Stuffed Crust Pizza Recipe

Stuffed Crust Pizza Recipe

I have wanted to do a Stuffed Crust Pizza Recipe for some time. The original plan was for a Chicago style pizza, but I ran into some issues obtaining the ingredients that I needed to complete the recipe. So mainly what happened is; I wound up with a combination of the two. I don’t like changing plans in the middle of a recipe because the outcome can be disastrous. However, this turned out to be a pleasant surprise. If you like a lot of topping on your pizza you will love this recipe; it is loaded with Italian sausage, cheese and a few other ingredients. The only thing I felt was missing was a green pepper. This is a simple recipe that is mildly seasoned; if you like your pizza spicy, I would season to taste. For a single pizza the top is really loaded, if you wanted to stretch it out a little bit I am sure it would make two but the full recipe does fit nicely inside the crust edges created by the mozzarella cheese stick stuffing. If you are looking for a simple Stuffed Crust Pizza Recipe give this one a try, there is very little prep time, and you and your family will love it. Enjoy
