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’.

  1. My kids just love stuffed crust pizza, that melted cheesy crust wow, my mouth is already watering here. Well done Sowmya.You rocked with your stuffed dishes.

  2. Oh even this has been on my to do list Sowmya, I haven’t made not because I am conscious about the cheese, but just being lazy. You have got it baked so lovely!..Enjoyed your different stuffed dishes,

  3. It’s been a while since I made pizza at home . I remember making the stuffed crust as soon as Dominos launched their Cheese Burst ! Now with this pizza you are tempting to bake some .

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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
