Stuffed-Crust Pizza

The Inspiration Cafe has re-opened and on the menu today is a delicious Stuffed-Crust Pizza! The recipe below is for a Pepperoni & Beef pizza, but you can use the basic crust and add whatever toppings you prefer. Enjoy!

Stuffed-Crust Pizza

2 tubes (13.8 ounces each) refrigerated pizza crust
10 pieces string cheese
1 ½ - 2 lbs. of ground beef
Pepperoni slices
1 small jar of marinara or pizza sauce
2 pkgs. (8 oz. each) shredded mozzarella or Italian Blend cheese

Unroll both pizza crusts and place in a greased 15x10x1 inch jellyroll baking pan, letting dough drape 1 in. over the edges. Pinch center seam to seal.
Place string cheese around edges of pan. Fold dough over cheese; pinch to seal. Bake at 425° for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, brown ground beef until no longer pink, seasoning to taste.
Spread a layer of sauce over crust with ladle. Sprinkle with a handful of shredded cheese to cover sauce. Layer pepperoni slices on top of cheese. Layer ground beef on top of pepperoni. Repeat layers of sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and ground beef. Cover top with a layer of cheese.
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.
