May 6th, 2021

Do you agree that cheese makes everything better?

If you do, then you would be thrilled by this cheese hack that we have discovered.

Before that, we have a fun fact for all cheese lovers out there. Did you know that mozzarella cheese was originally made with buffalo milk?

Today, we can get mozzarella made from cow’s milk. The difference with mozzarella that is made from cow’s milk is that it’s significantly milder in taste.

Have you tried molding your favorite mozzarella cheese in an ice cube tray? Well, it might sound weird, but it’s not. In fact, this will be the key to creating a very delicious and filling pizza.

You’ll understand why we would do this trick later, and we guarantee, you’ll do this recipe again.

Now, let’s start making this lovely pizza.

First, you need to get yourself a good size 3 mozzarella cheese balls and a clean ice tray too.

Simply mold your mozzarella in the tray until your cheese has occupied the entire ice cube tray. Give it a good tap, and off to the freezer, it goes.

Freeze it for around 2-3 hours. Go and watch a movie or something.

When you’re done with your movie, start making your delicious pizza. We all know that it’s better to make the dough yourself, right?

Knead the ingredients for your dough and then transfer it to a bowl. Cover it with cling wrap and let it rest for about an hour.

Once that is ready, go ahead and preheat the oven to 400°F.

Take ⅔ of the dough and roll it out into a circle, then transfer it to your skillet. Make sure that your dough is slightly larger than your skillet. We will need that extra dough later.

Spread a good amount of that savory tomato sauce. Make sure that you leave some space around the edge of your crust.

Then, go ahead and sprinkle potato sticks, diced bacon, and top it with shredded mozzarella!

Looking delicious already!

Now, get the rest of the pizza dough and roll it out into a circle. It should be around the same size as the skillet too.

Use a glass and cut 6 holes out of your dough. Make sure they are evenly spaced out. Take that dough and cover the pizza in your skillet.

Now, it’s time to get those mozzarella cubes out of the freezer. Are you ready?

Arrange your mozzarella cubes around the inner side of your pizza. Then, get the excess pizza dough and flip it over the mozzarella cubes – creating a stuffed crust.

Get your melted butter and brush your pizza dough.

You can also choose to sprinkle crushed oregano, red pepper, and then, to complete the recipe, sprinkle grated parmesan on top.

Now, crack and put an egg into each hole of your dough. Looks so scrumptious, right? Now the waiting begins.

Transfer the skillet to your oven, and bake it at 400°F for 40 minutes until the crust is golden brown.

Look at that beauty! The golden brown color, soft bread, savory filling, and mozzarella-filled crust is simply the best that you’ll ever taste.
