Why Try? Impress the crowd with this hearty four meat pizza layered in a pizzeria-style cheese stuffed crust pizza!

Foodie Byte: We used pizza style Canadian bacon in this recipe; if using larger traditional sliced Canadian bacon, slice rounds in quarters. For added spice, switch out traditional sausage topping with Italian hot sausage crumbles and serve topped with crushed red pepper flakes--great paired with a side of ranch dressing for dipping to cool things down.

Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 475°F.
  2. Roll out pizza dough into a 14-inch circle. Place on 12-inch oiled pizza pan dusted with cornmeal (drape crust evenly over outer edges of pan).
  3. Position 1 stick string cheese along inside edges of dough, fold dough over cheese and press to seal. Repeat with remaining cheese sticks; forming a cheese stuffed crust around outer edge of pizza pan.
  4. Spread 1/2 cup pizza sauce evenly over center of pizza crust; top with 2 cups shredded cheese.
  5. Arrange Canadian bacon, bell pepper strips, bacon, sausage, pepperoni and black olives over top of pizza. Top with shredded cheese and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden and bubbly. Remove from oven. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese evenly over top of pizza.
