Stuffed Crust Pizza


Pizza with cheese stuffing will make it more cheesy and of course more yummy.... and I made this time with Fajita filling but you can make it with any topping of your choice... 

for dough:
all purpose flour 3 cups
yeast 1 tsp
sugar 1 tsp
salt 1 tsp
butter 2 tbsp
water for kneading 

for fajita filling:
boneless chicken small chunks 1 lb
garlic paste 1 tsp
crushed red pepper 1 tsp
salt 1 tsp
wooster sauce 2 tbsp
lemon juice 2 tbsp
chili garlic sauce 2 tbsp
onion cubes
bell pepper cut in strips 
mushrooms sliced
pizza sauce 
cheese strings for stuffing 
mozzarella cheese
cheddar cheese 
oregano leaves to sprinkle on top
crushed red chili to sprinkle (optional)

in mixing bowl, add flour, salt, sugar and butter



mix yeast with some warm water, leave it for 2 -3 minutes... it will become frothy which means its active and good to use... if it doesn't get frothy... means yeast has some problem

add in flour and knead it with water to make a soft dough.... knead it for 8 - 10 minutes... more you knead it better the result



cover in a bowl and set aside for 40mins to an hour for it to double in size....



now for the filling:

make a mixture with, garlic paste, salt, red chili, lemon juice, worcestershire sauce  and chili garlic sauce


add the chicken pieces... mix well and leave it... give it at least 15 minutes


heat about 1 tsp of oil, add marinated chicken and cook till tender and all water dries


transfer in bowl... let it come on room temperature


now assembling, if you are using strings cut them in half... you can cut the strips from a cheese block as well


take the 3/4 part from dough.... roll it on pizza plate and corners of the base must bit thick as you are going to roll them inner side
it should be at least 1 inch out of pizza tray...


place the strips around the edges


roll in the extra base which was out of tray... and cover the strings


press the inner tucking firmly... make sure... it close completely otherwise cheese will come out when you bake


leave it covered for second proofing... and then bake it on 450F/250C for 7 to 10 minutes

bring it out and let it rest for few minutes... now the topping part.... spread the pizza sauce


then sprinkle some cheese, then place the cooked chicken all over.... onion cubes, bell peppers and mushrooms...


sprinkle both the cheese generously.... sprinkle oregano leaves and crushed red chili...


bake it on 500 f/300 C... till cheese get bubbly on top....


cut the wedges.... and this time I served it with cheesy garlic biscuits and enjoyed it Alhumdulilah :)
