Stuffed pull apart pizza are super easy to prepare and great snack of interest to kids. Just roll the dough, apply some pizza sauce, stuff the veggies of choice with cheese, cover with dough and bake. It’s so simple!!! Here I have used sprig genoa multipurpose spice mix which is a medley of Italian herbs and spices giving the true burst of Italian flavors. It can be used for grilling, frying, roasting, stewing, steaming, braise, barbecue. You can just make this for parties, dinner or any special occasion. The smell from oven is heavenly. It is so cheesy and tasty with bust of flavors in every bite.
