How To Make Stuffed Crust Pizza

No need to order out! This stuffed crust pizza is made with a homemade pizza crust that’s filled with string cheese and topped with pepperoni.

Preparation: 2 hours 15 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 2 hours 30 minutes



  • homemade pizza crust*,(½ recipe)
  • 7string cheese,unwrapped
  • ½cuppizza sauce,or more as desired, homemade or store-bought
  • cupsmozzarella cheese,shredded
  • pepperoni,or any other preferred toppings
  • Italian seasoning blend,or dried basil, for sprinkling on top, optional


  1. Prepare the pizza dough, including preheating the oven to 475 degrees F.

  2. Lift the edge of the dough up to create a lip around the edges. Arrange the string cheese around the edges of the crust, leaving a ¾-inch space. Fold the edges of the dough over the string cheese, pinching down to seal.

  3. Do your best to completely seal the string cheeses inside. Let the dough rest for a couple of minutes if having trouble sealing it completely.

  4. Top with pizza sauce, the mozzarella cheese, then the pepperoni. Sprinkle lightly with seasoning.

  5. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned and the cheese is bubbling. For the last minute, move the oven rack to the top rack to really brown the edges. Remove from the oven.

  6. Slice pizza and serve immediately.
