This is one pizza recipe that you need to try! I made it according to the directions...but I put tons of fresh veggies on it too! I loved the stuffed crust and we couldn't stop eating it! Go ahead...MAKE this! You won't be sorry.

VERY CHEESY!!! If l you like cheese, THIS IS FOR YOU! My sister and I used mozzarella cheese instead of Italian Cheese Blend. Very good! Although the recipe says 8 servings, for me it fed three people. Probably 8 slices, but I will probably make double the recipe next time.

I made this with a friend and we LOVED it! Because of the dough we had, we weren't able to make it into a circle, but other than that delish! Also, don't worry about the amount of sauce and cheese amounts, we put on as much as we wanted!

Good for it not being a Pizza Hut stuffed crust. I added sliced mushrooms and sliced olives in place of the pepperoni. Came out well.

This is a very easy, and delicious alternative to ordering out. Stuffed Crust is one of my favorite types of pizza too. I'm not big on frozen pizza either. I made a couple changes. I used shredded cheddar cheese instead of Italian blend. (personal preference). It does sound odd, but I've always used cheddar on my homemade pizzas. It gives it a bold cheesy taste. Sometimes I use cheddar, and mozzarella together. I also sprinkled a generous amount of Italian Herb seasoning all over the pizza. It takes about 17-20 in my oven. That is with a preheat. My son loved it as well.
