Taste is subjective, but we really enjoyed the addition of the melted mozzarella cheese stick to plain pizza crust, though it did make the pizza more greasy.

❤️ Pizza Hut Stuffed Crust Recipe
How to make stuffed crust pizza like Pizza Hut? It’s easy to make your own Pizza Hut stuffed crust pizza copycat by simply stuffing a homemade pizza crust with string cheese before baking.
