The WOW factor alone that you would get from this gorgeous pizza is enough, but the taste is even more incredible. All the bubbles on the border of the pizza are stuffed with cheese, so every bite is a burst of flavour.
First prepare the sauce. Recipe to be found here.

Next, prepare the dough:
5 cups all purpose flour (each is 120gm)
1 and a half cups warm water (or water mixed with some fresh milk)
8 tbsp. oil
2 tbsp. milk powder
2 level tbsp. instant yeast
¼ tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. sugar
½ tsp. salt
Mix all the dry ingredients and the oil, then slowly start adding the warm water/milk a little at a time. Get it to a soft dough, the softer the better, knead it very well for at least 8 minutes or more if possible.
Dab a touch of oil all over the dough, then cover it and place it somewhere warm. Leave it to rise to double its size, takes about 30 minutes to an hour depending on the weather.
Once risen, punch it down, give it a quick knead and then divide the dough into 2 equal parts.
Roll half of the dough to about 12", then place it on a greased pizza tray.
Divide the second part of the dough into small balls, fill each one with cheese of your choice, I used some grated mozzarella. Seal the balls well and place them all around the border of the pizza.
Lightly cover the pizza and let it sit for about 15 minutes.
For the topping you can use anything that you like. I used this chicken mixture.
I sometimes also add some of the toppings shown here for added flavor.
You will also need:
Mozzarella and/or cheddar cheese.
1 beaten egg yolk mixed with 1 tsp. milk
When about ready to bake, take a knife and poke small slits a few times all over the base of the pizza to prevent it from swelling up during baking.
Preheat the oven to 180 C
Spread the pizza sauce, sprinkle some cheese, and then add toppings of your choice. Sprinkle some more cheese on top. Then brush the balls on the border of the pizza with the beaten egg and sprinkle sesame seeds.
Bake for about 30 minutes or until the pizza is well cooked and golden. You can first place it on the lower rack for about 10 minutes, then bring it up a notch to the center rack and continue baking until done.
