    Pizza in a Pizza

    2 cans prepared pizza crust
    2 3/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (divided use)
    3/4 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
    3/4 cup shredded cheddar
    3/4 cup shredded provolone cheese
    2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
    2 tablespoons grated romano cheese
    pepperoni or bell pepper or olives (toppings of your choice)
    1 jar pizza sauce

    Preheat oven to 475F. On a lightly floured surface, unroll first pizza dough.
    Using a rolling pin dusted with flour, roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness.
    Place in a well-greased 12-inch perforated pizza pan. Trim dough with a knife or pizza wheel to fit inside the diameter of the pan. Pierce dough with a fork every half-inch to prevent air bubbles. This will ultimately be your top crust.) Prebake this crust for 5 minutes; remove crust from pan and place on a wire rack to cool. Prepare the second crust for the pan in the same way, but remove the excess dough around the edges by rolling a rolling pin over the top of the pan to form a lip on the crust. Pierce with a fork. Combine 3/4 cup mozzarella and remaining cheeses and spread evenly over this crust. Put the partially baked crust on top of the cheese layer. Spread 1/2 cup of pizza sauce over this top crust, then scatter the toppings of your choice, starting with meats, then vegetables. Finish with the final 2 cups of mozzarella. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and golden brown. 4 servings.
