Easy Cast Iron Skillet Pizza


Easy Cast Iron Skillet Pizza

We love cooking new things in our cast iron skillets and pizza is no exception. This easy cast iron skillet pizza turned out to be amazing and it disappeared in minutes. 

We spend several evenings baking cookies for the Holidays with our daughter and grandsons. On one of these evenings, we needed something quick to eat before we started baking our cookies.

Our grandson Bobby, showed up with pizza dough, sauce, and his favorite topping, olives. Bobby decided to use one of our cast iron skillets to make our pizza.

Cast Iron Skillet Recipe
Ready for the oven

How to make Easy Cast Iron Skillet Pizza:

  1. The first thing Bobby did was preheat the oven to 500 degrees.
  2. Spread the dough on a floured surface to the size of the skillet, we used our 12-inch cast-iron skillet.
  3. Place the cast-iron skillet in the 500-degree oven for 5 or 10 minutes.
  4. Carefully remove the skillet from the oven using heavy potholders.
  5. Place the shaped dough in the skillet and add your sauce, favorite toppings, and shredded mozzarella.
  6. Place it back in the oven and bake for 10 minutes until the crust is golden brown.
  7. Again carefully remove the skillet from the oven and using a spatula transfer the pizza to a cooling rack.
  8. After a couple of minutes slide it onto a pizza pan slice it and enjoy.
What makes this so easy is you can pick up fresh pizza dough at your local grocery store and have fresh hot pizza in 20 minutes.

If you prefer to make your own dough try my All-purpose dough recipe here. This recipe will make 3 nice sized pizzas, so if you're only making one pizza divide the ingredients accordingly.

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy it.
