When you think of pizza, you think of a delicious crust, cheese, some kind of meat and an amazing marinara. Now think of that pizza if it was stuffed with another pizza. That’s what we are talking about when we talk about double stuffed pizza. Its pizza-ception and we are Leonardo DiCaprio about to blow your mind. The only warning I have is that you MUST share this with friends or family. Trust me, eating this in one sitting will cause you to go into a food coma.
Double Stuffed Pizza
Val and I were watching inception one night. We joked about how crazy it was and if we were in the “dream state”. Then we started thinking about what we were going to have for dinner. “Pizza sounds delicious” Valerie said. Then she said “Wait, what if there was a pizza within a pizza”. That is how we came up with the idea of doing the double stuffed pizza!
Not really, we actually just love pizza and when we thought about doing one for Marvelous Munch, we knew we couldn’t do it without going big. So a pizza within a pizza aka double stuffed pizza is what you get.
Role up those sleeves and lets get building this double stuffed pizza!
Building the sauce is going to be easy. Over medium heat, add in a little bit of olive oil (enough to coat the bottom). Then throw in your garlic and onion and let cook until onions start to become translucent. Add in your San Marzano tomatoes and mix together. After a couple of minutes letting that cook, throw in the remaining ingredients and mix. Let cook for another couple of minutes and throw everything into a blender (or use and immersion blender) and blend until smooth.
Building the pizza is the fun part. Mix all those types of cheese up into a bowl and set aside. Put down olive oil on your sheet pan to coat the bottom. Throw down some garlic salt on there to give the bottom of the crust a nice flavor. Take the first layer of dough and put that down on the pan and throw in the oven at 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Once the bottom layer of dough is cooked, bring it out and start to stacking. Put on the sauce first, then half of the cheese mixture followed by prosciutto. If you were making a one layer pizza, we might stop there, but this is the double stuffed pizza! Now, add on the second layer of dough, stretch it out to cover the whole bottom layer and then add more sauce, salami, pepperoni, and top with the cheese. Optionally you can chop up some more onion and throw that on top as well. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 400.
