I’ve seen this concept a lot on Pinterest, and have had it pinned on my own board to try for quite some time. So Sunday night, I decided to give it a shot. With my stuffed crust pizza loving boyfriend out of town, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to try it for myself to see if it’s even worth it. End result?  Yes, yes it was.

Consensus on Pinterest and from a lot of my friends is the difficulty in finding one that actually holds together. I may have just gotten lucky, but mine seemed to work just fine on the first attempt. You can’t hold it like a normal pizza crust and eat it with your hands (well, you can but that would be pretty messy, but to each their own), but I don’t have an issue with eating with a fork.

Hawaiian pizza is my favorite, so I topped it with cheese, ham, and pineapple. I was being a bit lazy and didn’t make my own pizza sauce, and just used Prego tomato sauce instead. I got a large two pack from Costco the other day for use in things like this so I went for it.
