CI Pizza

@Griffin inspired me to try the cast iron deep dish pizza. I haven't ventured into making my own dough yet so I used store bought. I got my dough from Publix and it's not bad. I used a 13 inch skillet and cooked my pizza at 425 indirect. The platesetter was legs up with the grid on top of it. I cooked it for 30 minutes, which was probably a couple of minutes too long. Next time(and there will be a next time!), I'll probably take it off at 25 minutes. After letting the dough rest and spread in the skillet, I topped it with grated mozzerella, sausage, pepperoni and black olives. Then I added some sauce and then MORE mozzerella. Even with slightly over-cooking, this pizza was one of the best so far on the egg!imageimageimageimageimageimage

    Next time take your cheese all the way to the edge if the skillet. It kind of burns and crisps up and is the best part of skillet pies. Looks great!

    Gotta have that cheese gasket!! Looks pretty durn good, 'specially for store bought dough. When you get the time, try making the dough yourself. Its leaps and bounds better.

    I approve of your choice of beverage. Good stuff.

    I've been doing some reseasoning of my skillets in anticipation of a pan pizza, my kid's favorite style.  Since I do whatever they ask for in the kitchen, this is on the to do list.  Well done Hash!

  • Add a tbs of olive oil to the pan before you put the dough in it.  Sauce on the top of cheese is the trick to keep it from being a soggy mess.  I do not use a lot of sauce because I do not like soupy pizza.  You can always serve extra on the side for dipping.

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!

  • Thanks for the responses! I had 1 lb of cheese on the pizza but it looks like I still need a little more to get that gasket going and with a 13 inch skillet, I used 2 tbl spoons of olive oil. Gonna buy the ingredients to make my own dough too. I would suggest this cook to anyone. It's good!
