Easy Pan Pizza Recipe

Cast Iron Pan Pizza RecipeAnyone with a cast iron pan can make this easy, healthy, low fat, delicious pan pizza at home. Pizza in a cast iron pan? Absolutely! The crust is key to a good pizza and using cast iron is a foolproof way to get the easiest, golden, crispy crust, ready to hold all the toppings of your choice. There’s no kneading, no rolling… no work at all to make this easy pan pizza dough. You can either start it the night before or a few hours ahead.

The dough slowly rises and then you just put it in the pan, add your toppings, and go! It comes out perfect every time and it’s by far the best deep dish pizza I’ve ever had.  Plus it’s low fat so there’s no grease to blot… unless of course you use regular pepperoni instead of my choice of healthy toppings like reduced fat turkey pepperoni, peppers, onions, and mushrooms.

There’s no reason to avoid pizza when you can make an easy, healthy, low fat pan pizza at home and if you use my toppings, you’ll also get a few vegetables in every slice. Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

    I have been very successful with this, but I have altered the execution slightly. I use a 12-inch skillet to make a crust about 10 1/2 inches. I put the dough in the pan and spread it out to the edges. Then I heat the pan on the stovetop. Then I put the skillet in the oven on the low rack for 5 minutes. I take out the skillet and put the sauce, cheese, and toppings on. Then I put the skillet back on the low rack for 12 minutes. It comes out perfectly. A nice thin, crispy crust.

    I tried to make a breakfast pizza (scrambled the eggs, added sliced lite breakfast sausage links and cheddar and mozzarella cheese.
    The dough was perfectly cooked on the bottom and on the top but the middle of the dough was raw.
    Any suggestions so that I can do it more successfully next time.

      Since this is not really my recipe it’s hard to say. It could be there was too much moisture on top from the eggs, sausage, & cheeses or it could be the oven was not hot enough. What I suggest is to try my recipe first and follow the steps exactly. If that turns out, then it’s probably too much moisture on top.
