For the pizza base:
1 can (13.8 oz) refrigerated classic pizza crust
7 sticks (1 oz each) string cheese
1/2 cup pizza sauce
For the toppings:
I am not even going to try to tell you how to top your pizza. Everyone has their own favorites. Listed below are a few *suggestions*
24 slices pepperoni (from 3.5-oz package)
2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend (8 oz)
1/4 lb of sausage, Italian sausage or ground beef
1/4 cup sliced mushrooms
Strips of green bell pepper
Heat oven to 425°F.
Grease 12-inch pizza pan with shortening or cooking spray. Unroll dough; place in pan. Starting at center, press out dough to edge of pan, pressing up and extending over sides by at least 1 inch. Place string cheese around inside edge of crust. Fold extended edge of dough over cheese; pinch firmly to seal.
Spoon sauce evenly over dough. Top with pepperoni and cheese blend.
Bake 12 to 16 minutes or until crust is deep golden brown and cheese in center is melted.
For a crispier crust, bake crust 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown, then add toppings; bake pizza 12 to 16 minutes.
