Pizza Crust Stuffing

Nov 23, 2020Posted by guestchefPrint

If you love pizza, and you love Thanksgiving, here is a fun way to combine the two! Mark and Jenny Bello of Pizza School NYC have concocted a delicious recipe that puts a new twist on a classic stuffing combination. By first baking pizza dough with onions for the bread element, you get a perfect flavor infusion built into the base of this stuffing mix that really takes it up a notch. Add in sausage, sage, and a broth of your choice, and you are in for a moist stuffing side dish that will accent any meal!
