Homemade Pan Pizza


So the other day I posted my recipe for homemade bread. Did you make it yet? Seriously, it's so good, guys. Well next on the list of things to make with your dough: pizza. Bangin' pan pizza. (Yes, all these things can be made without altering the original dough recipe.)

First things first, tear off a chunk o' dough to use for your pizza crust. Sprinkle some corn meal on your work surface and stretch out your dough until it's nice and round.



Preheat your oven to 450 degrees and turn the stove on medium high and coat with oil (I used olive oil). Wait till the oil is hot and then spread dough to edges of pan. I used a 10" cast iron skillet since I didn't have a ton of dough to work with but I usually use a 12" stainless skillet.


Wait till your dough bubbles up like this, then flip over.



After you flip, spread your sauce on the dough (we use BBQ sauce), and top with your favorite toppings. We made a bunch of different kinds for our Christmas get-together this year.




Once your toppings are on, put in oven until the cheese is melted. (You may want to even use the broiler for this part.) After it was out of the oven, I grated some fresh Parmesan cheese over the whole thing...delish. 


Smiles all around.

  1. Hmm. I don't know if I can make this 'cause I don't have a neat bread board like that ;) I'm pretty sure that is key here. Beautiful photos!

    1. Oh yes, the bread board is necessary if you want your pizza to turn out right...forgot to mention that;)

  2. Oh yum, fresh made pizza. We've taking a liking to a little Italian grocer in our 'hood that sells all types of crazy iMeats and spices. Never tried the iron deep-dish option, will do that next time. Thanks for the tip.

    Cheers!
