Cast-Iron Skillet Deep Dish Pizza

skillet pizza

There is no pizza delivery where we live. Not that there aren’t any pizza joints around, just that we live too far away from them and they won’t deliver here. It has forced us to discover the wonders of homemade pizza and we have enjoyed many a great one!

Our usual pizza is of the thin-crust, gourmet variety (think goat cheese, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, chicken). Sadly, our 14 year-old daughter is not a fan. So when we are looking for a pizza that will satisfy all of us, this is it! It’s deep and rich, full of meat and has “normal” (as daughter would call them) pizza ingredients.

I think this pizza is best baked in a cast-iron skillet, for it’s great heat conducting properties but, in a pinch, you can bake it in any oven-proof dish with high enough sides to contain all the ingredients.

  3. Glad you enjoyed it, Heather. I usually make my own pizza dough as well but I tried this one and it was good. A little different with the added cornmeal but was nice with the deep-dish fillings.

  4. Just made it and it was delicious! I used my own homemade pizza dough that I always make and it only needed about 20 minutes in the oven to set. Thanks for the idea – it came just as I was looking for it!

  5. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it, Heather. We had it last night and I’m still thinking about how good it was :)
