Pizza Hut Stuffed Crust Pizza

The stuffed crust pizza from Pizza Hut combines a traditional pizza with a built-in cheese stick appetizer in the crust. While cheese is the most common ingredient found in the crust stuffing, other ingredients such as pepperoni or other traditional pizza ingredients like sausage, bacon, or black olives can be added for an extra special pizza pie. Learning how to make Pizza Hut Stuffed Crust Pizza in a home kitchen allows for customization of the pizza for dietary restrictions or flavor preferences. As an added benefit, home-baked pizzas do not require waiting for a pizza to be delivered and can be made for significantly less than the cost of a restaurant-ordered pie.
