I’ll never forget the look on my brothers face when he bit into my pizza for the very first time… his eyes were as wide as saucers and though he may deny it, I swear I saw a tear of joy streak down his face.

How to make this Pepperoni Stuffed Crust Pizza Recipe

Pepperoni Stuffed Pizza Crust. Pizza doesn't get better than this recipe for pepperoni stuffed pizza crust. Perfect spices and saltiness combine to amplify the pepperoni stuffed situation of this crust.

Step one is to roll out your crust so it is about 2 inches wider than the pizza pan. I use a pizza pan with handles so you don’t damage the crust before it’s baked. I recommend lifting the dough frequently and spinning it around to ensure you aren’t stuck to the counter!

Now add the pepperoni sticks around the edge so that they are pressed right against the outer lip of the pizza pan.

Start by taking the edge of the dough and tucking it as far under the pepperoni stick as it can go. Pinch the dough from the crust and bottom of pizza together to form an extra seal in case the dough wants to come untucked during baking.
