The Middlesbrough shot-stopper had signed a month-long loan deal with The Potters but starred in Saturday's draw at Ipswich Town.
The 33-year-old's heroics in goal for Stoke helped to earn them a point and Pulis is hoping he can persuade Crossley to remain for the rest of the season in their relegation fight.
"It's a one-month deal for the moment, but he knows I would want him to stay until the end of the season," said Pulis.
"Everyone has their job to do and Mark played his part in a very, very good defensive performance to give us a valuable point."
Pulis is also keen to keep hold of Leeds United's Frazer Richardson for a third month after his current deal ended on Saturday.
