  • 1 pizza dough homemade or store-bought
  • 8 to 10 mozzarella cheese sticks


  1. Make notches with a knife along one side of each cheese stick. This will allow it to bend.
  2. Roll out your pizza dough about one inch bigger than your pizza pan. You need enough dough to fold over the cheese.
  3. Place the dough on the pizza pan. Using the edge of your pizza pan as a guide is quite helpful.
  4. Arrange cheese sticks along the edge.
  5. Gently, fold the dough over the sticks. Make sure to seal it or the whole cheese will melt out of the crust. You may need to wet your fingers with water to glue the dough together. After you fold all of the crust, sprinkle a little bit of flour over the wet places.
  6. Check if there is no holes where the cheese can get out during baking. If you are worried, you can place a drip pan under the pizza pan in the oven.
  7. Bake the pizza crust for 6 to 10 minutes, before baking it with toppings. We do that to prevent the soggy unbaked dough. After that, we spread the pizza sauce, pepperoni, sliced peppers, onions, olives and more cheese! You can butter the cheese-stuffed edge and sprinkle with just a little bit of cheese (we find Parmesan is great for it) or cornmeal.
