Stuffed crust Pizza

The stuffed crust pizza has been on my list forever. It is surprising why I haven’t done this before considering I bake pizzas quite regularly. I always plan to make this but then I get into the unnecessary health mode and run miles from the cheese. That was one of the main reasons I picked this theme of ‘Stuffed Dishes’ for this month’s Blogging Marathon.

I didn’t have access to string cheese which is used for these stuffed crust pizzas so I just cut up strips from the mozzarella cheese I had at hand.

Makes 1 pizza


1/2 portion dough from here

2-3 tbsp Pizza sauce

50-60 gms Mozarella cheese cut into strips

Toppings of your choice


  • Preheat the oven to 200C
  • Roll out the dough to 8″ on a greased baking tray
  • Place the cheese strips on the dough 1″ from the edge on all sides
  • Fold the dough to enclose the cheese inside and press it gently to lock the cheese
  • Apply pizza sauce on the rest of the dough and add the toppings
  • Bake for 20 minutes off till the sides begin to brown
  • Serve warm
  • Enjoy!

This is my post for the Blogging Marathon under the theme, ‘Stuffed Dishes’.

    I have virtually stopped baking pizza at home. But this stuffed pizza will inspire my kids to demand a home made pizza 🙂

  7. Even I have this in my to do list but never tried. We need to come out of the health consciousness once in a while to appreciate such dishes. The pizza looks so good and I am sure it was a cheesy delight.

    Yes, you are right. Stuffed pizza being too cheesy most of the time takes a back seat. But these being kid’s favorite I make it often. Your pizza has come out great. I have started feeling hungry.

    a kid favorite for sure though I’ve never had it because I always think the quantity of cheese both in the crust and on top will be over the top

  14. It is really a out of the box thinking.., Super yummy stuffed pizza
