Stuffed Crust Pizza Tweaks

Top: Pictured is the string cheese spread around the edge of the crust after the first baking at 450 degrees for about 12-15 minutes. Make sure to let the crust cool on the stove for about 10 minutes prior to adding cheese and rolling edges over.

Press dough over the cheese and press down. If the crust tries to come apart, smooch and mold it to the string cheese to gold it in place.

Add toppings. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. If cheese starts to ooze from crust, pop pizza under the broiler for 2 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes.

This last step is different from my prior recipe, where I said to go ahead and refrigerate and then broil and then bake. Technically, it’s all the same, but I was really happy with the results of baking prior to broiling.
