Recipe for Homemade Stuffed Crust Pizza

This post is not sponsored, but I was gifted this Gusta product for recipe-testing purposes. As always, my opinions are 100% my own, and honest 🙂

Everyone loves pizza. It’s part of being human. We all breathe, love, laugh and eat pizza. Pizza is good for every meal, any season, and any occasion. Everyone has their own preference toppings, some with pineapple and some without, but we can all agree that baked crust covered in tomato sauce and cheese is one of life’s greatest treasures.

I’ve had vegan pizzas that never satisfy the pizza-shaped hole in my heart, I’ve had some that were just bad. But the one I created today… now this one is PIZZA. I did my research and created the best 100% vegan Pizza Hut Stuffed Crust Pizza.

If you recall, I made a Pizza Hut copycat stuffed crust pizza back in 2018! Today’s recipe is the next level Stuffed Crust pizza. If you’ve visited my website before, you know that one of my passions is recreating everyone’s favourite, childhood and adulthood favourite fast food items. Nailing an even better Vegan Stuffed Crust Pizza has been on my list for so long and when I got my hands on some Gusta Foods vegan cheese, I knew it was time to stuff some crust!

VEGAN PIZZA HUT STUFFED CRUST PIZZA INGREDIENTS

Pizza Hut Style Sauce

For the Pizza

Feel free to dress this pizza with your favourite toppings. I like the classic “pepperoni and cheese” but feel free to spice it up however you like. The secret to Pizza Hut is bread flour, the cheesy stuffed crust, letting the dough rise in the buttered pan for an hour at room temperature, and spraying the dough with butter flavoured spray before it goes into the oven.

Vegan Pepperoni Stuffed Crust Pizza Instructions

1. Prepare the dough for the crust. I suggest you prepare the crust one day prior to baking the pizza. As you will need plenty of time for it to rise in the fridge, and then at room temperature.

2. Meanwhile, prepare your sauce. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add all ingredients and bring to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 10-15 mins.
Remove from heat & set aside.

3. An hour before you are ready to make your pizza, take the dough out of the fridge, so it can come to room temperature.

4. Preheat your oven to 475F with the pizza stone in it, and grease your pizza pan, or cake pan, and sprinkle with cornmeal to prevent the pizza from sticking.

5. On a floured surface, roll out your dough a bit larger than your selected pan.

6. Score the rolled out dough several times with a fork. This will prevent it from bubbling up when baked.

7. Put the dough on a pizza pan, letting it drape over the edge.

8. Place the vegan cheese sticks, end to end, around the edge of the dough.

9. Wet your fingers, and moisten the outer edge of the dough, all of the way around. This will act as a glue to hold the folded-over dough.

10. Fold the dough up and over the cheese sticks and press it down onto itself to seal tightly.

11. Lightly brush the top of the folded dough edge with non-dairy butter spray, butter flavoured coconut oil or olive oil.

12. Now top your pizza! Spread your dough with some of the sauce (make sure to spread the sauce on top of the folded seam to hide it), then top with your desired veggie toppings, and sprinkle with shredded vegan cheese.

13. Top with meat-free pepperoni and bake the pizza for 8-12 mins depending on your oven. Make sure to place the pizza or cake pan directly on top of the pizza stone.

14. When the cheese has melted and the pizza crust is golden brown, remove the pizza from the pan and place it directly onto the pizza stone for 2 mins to toast the bottom.

15. Slice and serve!

TIPS FOR VEGAN STUFFED CRUST PIZZA

  • You can use a 9-inch, 12-inch, or 15-inch deep-dish pizza pan, cake pan or cast-iron skillet for this recipe
  • Preheat your oven with a pizza stone in it to simulate the type of oven used at a pizzeria chain. The hot surface of the pizza stone will cook oil on the bottom of the dough, making the crust brown and crispy.
