Stuffed Crust Pizza

You know how some groups say that fast food and junk food commercials are targeted at children? Add husbands to that group.

For the past few weeks Pizza Hut has been running tons of commercials for their Stuffed Crust Pizza. And Scott has been watching and drooling.

"I've never had a stuffed crust pizza before." He said sadly the other night.

Well for the love of all things stuffed I thought we'd better change that!

So last night we made our very own stuffed crust pizza. And it turned out pretty darn good.

I used our bread maker's recipe for pizza dough and then patted the dough out into a larger pizza than usual. I cut sticks of mozzarella and placed them all around the edge of the crust.
I rolled the dough over the cheese twice to (hopefully) keep all the melty cheese on the inside. Then we plopped it in the pan.
We covered the dough with deliciously garlicky pizza sauce, ham, pineapple, tomatos and mushrooms, some more mozza, and then into the oven it went at 425' for 25 minutes. And when it came out?
It was very tasty. One section of the crust un-rolled during cooking and let some cheese out, but for the most part it worked very well. The picture's not the greatest, but if you squint, you can see the cheese in the crust.

I'm sure we'll be having this again and again if Scott gets his way, and really it wasn't much more work than making a regular pizza. I wonder how different cheeses would be in the crust? Maybe some Gouda, or Goats cheese? Yum.

That looks Yummy! And aren't "children" and "husbands" one and the same??!! Oh, is Valentine's Day and I'm typing this looking at the flowers delivered a bit ago. So, mine isn't a child and would NEVER (eh hem) be influenced by marketing like a stuffed crust pizza (wink-wink). I bet swiss would be great with grilled veggies.
