Pizza has been getting a little out of control lately, and if you ask us, we love it. There's a time and a place for everything, including hot dog stuffed crust pizza (the place would be the UK) and cheeseburger- or chicken strip-stuffed pizza (in the Middle East).
Though our Kitchen Daily editors usually lunch on quinoa and arugula salads, we dream of crusts stuffed with macaroni and cheese or peanut butter cups. We decided to get in on the stuffed-crust trend by making our own outrageous pizzas, and we want you to get in on the action too. Send us your best ideas for stuffed crust pizzas -- preferably along with photos -- and be a part of our crazy crust slideshow. Nothing is too over-the-top.
Everything in moderation, right?
Get your dinner and dessert all in one dish. With sweet and savory combinations as popular as they are these days (think sea salted chocolate), there's no reason not to jump on that culinary train. All you need for this recipe is pizza dough, your pizza cheese of choice, and a generous amount of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (or other chocolatey candy). To make it roll out the dough, chop the Reese's and fold the edge of the dough around the candy. Top with cheese and bake in the oven at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. You can eat the savory, cheese part first and save the crust for dessert -- or just eat each slice all the way through, and enjoy the mix of the salty-sweet flavors.
Yes, it's over the top and it's an Atkins dieter's worst nightmare, but this carbohydrate-laden pizza is tastier than it is scary. Not too far of a departure from the traditional cheese-stuffed crust pizza, this dish takes it just one step further. Simply spoon your favorite pre-cooked macaroni and cheese around the edge of the crust, roll the dough over the edges and press to give it a good seal, and bake it at 450 degrees F for 15 minutes. This version was topped with classic tomato sauce and mozzarella.
If everything is better with bacon, then a pizza surely is. This pizza's crust is stuffed with crispy fried bacon pieces and cream cheese, and baked at 500 degrees F on a pizza stone for 15 minutes. The body of the pizza is topped with caramelized onions and sour cream.
