Can I Use a Different Type of Pizza Dough?

  • Yes. You can use your favorite homemade pizza dough, a pre made dough or dough from a mix for this dish. It will need to cover the entire sides and bottom of a 9-10 inch oven safe skillet. A link to my favorite pizza dough can be found in the recipe index.

Fill Up Your Pizza: The pizza shown is strictly cheese. It’s delicious, but, only mozzarella cheese. However, you can load up this pizza with a wide variety of fillings.

A few filling ideas:

  • Cooked crumbled Italian sausage
  • Cooked bacon pieces
  • Chopped peppers or onions
  • Pepperoni
  • Mushrooms
  • You can also change up the cheese to include an Italian blend or your favorite combination of cheeses!

How to Make:

  • I used my iron skillet for this one. However, any oven safe skillet will do the job. Make sure it’s about 9-10 inches in size and is has some depth to it.
  • Preheat your oven. If you aren’t using an iron skillet, lightly spray the skillet with non stick cooking spray.
  • Prepare the dough as directed and roll it out on to a lightly floured surface.
  • Press it evenly into the sides and bottom of the skillet.
  • Lay the slices of cheese on top of the dough, then, top with any desired fillings.
  • Spread on a layer of pizza sauce.
  • Bake it!
  • Once it’s done, you can sprinkle the top with grated Parmesan cheese before serving. It’s optional, but, does add a nice finishing touch.

My son was so happy I decided to try this! He's in the camp that likes a lot of sauce, so this was perfect for him. My husband and I prefer a little less sauce, but we liked it too, and it will be coming to our table again in the future. The crust is good....I do have a bread machine and it makes lovely crusts for pizza, but when you want something sooner, this is the way to go.
