Let s be equal to the length of one side of the square. We know that the area the given square is 64, and we also know that the formula for finding the area of squares is s^2, where s is the length of one side.

With these facts established, we deduce that we can a fair description for the area of the given square is s^2 = 64. We solve for s by taking the square root of both sides, telling us that s is equal to 8.

Now that we have the length of one side, we can find the length around the whole square pizza by using the formula to a square's "perimeter." Specifically, that simply involves taking the length of one side 4 times. So for our case: 8*4 = 32.

Therefore, a stuffed crust that would perfectly go around this square pizza would be 32 inches long
