Like many families, pizza is something that graces our table on a regular basis. However, if you ask my boys where they get their favorite pizza, they’ll tell you it’s the homemade ones that I make. Today I’m sharing one of their favorites ~ stuffed crust pizza with pepperoni (and sometimes a bit of ground beef) on top.

Homemade Stuffed Crust Pizza
Making your pizza at home can be very easy and quick to do. Some grocery stores sell premade pizza dough in the refrigerated section that just needs a little time to warm up before stretching. I’ll share (later) how we make our own pizza dough. All of my dough recipes are from The Best Pizza is Made at Home with the occasional modification.
The boys hands down favorite for the stuffed crust pizza is Garlic Herb Crust. Sauce is often homemade, although we do occasionally purchase pizza sauce in bulk from Sam’s Club. (I’m partial to Ragu’s!)
I use a variety of pans to bake my pizza. I have a pizza stone which yields a nice crispy crust when used. However, I usually make several at a time using jelly roll pans for a thick crust set up and a regular circular one for the stuffed crust.
With the exception of using the pizza stone or the circular sheet, I line each pan with some parchment paper to make it easy to remove to a cooling rack. (Costco has THE best price around for parchment paper and it lasts a long time!)
Here you can see the stuffing for the crust. Sometimes we do just cheese, but the boys really LOVE when I add pepperoni to the crust as well.
When you stretch your dough, you need to pull it past the rim of your pizza pan. Lay down the cheese or other substance for the filled crust. Then, pull the extra dough over the top, pinching to seal.
How easy is that?!?
