Stuffed Crust Pizza as Made by Jackson
1 cup water, warm
1 0.25-ounce packet dry active yeast
½ teaspoon sugar
2½ cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
8-9 sticks string cheese
Pizza sauce, to preference
Shredded mozzarella, to preference
Toppings of preference (we used pepperoni and basil)
¼ cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon garlic salt
# Preheat oven to 425°F/220°C.
# Combine water with sugar and yeast, mix thoroughly and let bloom for 5-10 minutes.
# Add flour, salt, and olive oil, and mix thoroughly until a dough forms. Cover and rest for 30 minutes.
# Sprinkle flour over a baking sheet, and transfer dough to the baking sheet. Roll out dough to form a circle.
# Line string cheese along the edges of the crust. Fold dough over the string cheese, making sure to securely tuck it under to ensure the cheese doesn’t leak out.
# Top crust with marinara, mozzarella, and toppings of choice. Brush crust with butter and top with garlic salt.
# Bake 15-20 minutes, until crust is golden brown.
