  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220C)
  2. Spray 12-inch (30 cm) pizza pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle lightly with cornmeal, if desired.
  3. Starting in the center, press pizza dough in pan beyond the sides of the pan by an inch.
  4. Fold the hanging edge of the dough back toward the middle, placing the sticks of string cheese in the pouch, all the way around the circle.
  5. Pinch the dough to seal in the cheese.
  6. Bake the crust 8 or 10 minutes, or until the edges are light golden and the dough has started to set.
  7. Remove from oven and spread the sauce over the crust with the back of a spoon.
  8. Scatter on the sauce the pepperoni, sausage, and shredded Italian cheese.
  9. Replace in oven and bake until crust is deeply golden brown and the (topping) cheese is melted.
  10. Cut into 6–8 slices.
