A cast iron skillet is a great way to cook pizza. Try making a Cast Iron Skillet Pizza on your next pizza night!
I’ve shared about my love for my cast iron skillet before. It is my favorite pan in the kitchen. If you don’t have one it is worth the $20 to purchase one. It is extremely versatile. And you can make awesome bacon in it!
My son wanted to make pizza for dinner. He and Emma wanted to make their own personal pizzas. I doubled the batch of dough and made 2 little pizzas for the kids and a larger pizza to put in the cast iron skillet. The kids had such a fun time making their pizzas and putting their own toppings on them.
I used a 10 inch skillet to make the large pizza and made the dough fairly thick. I was going for a deep dish style pizza this time. You can easily roll it to your desired thickness to make either a thicker or thinner dough. The cast iron skillet gave the crust a nice crispy edge. Oh, it was delicious! After Stephen ate his pizza, he came after this one! He could not get enough!
