Stuffed Crust Pizza

For dinner last night, I experimented with something awesome.

I had a refrigerated pizza crust, pizza sauce, pepperonis... and string cheese. I knew I was making a pizza, but then I decided WHY NOT MAKE THIS AN AWESOME PIZZA INSTEAD?!

So voila, stuffed crust pizza. :)


I basically just rolled out the dough, pushing it thinner around the perimeter. Then, I placed a string cheese side-by-side, pulling the dough up over each stick and firmly pressing down, sealing it in.

I covered it in pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni and baked it at 425 F for 15 minutes, or until the cheese was bubbly and the dough was cooked.

It was delicious. 

The only issue I had was in some parts, the string cheese firmed up instead of being melty and gooey. 

But I used Weight Watchers brand string cheese, so I'm wondering if I buy a package that is more fatty or whatever, maybe that would be help? I don't know. 

Regardless, it was totally yummy, super easy and relatively cheap (seeing as we have most of this on hand always).

Try it! You'll like it!
