Cast-Iron Skillet Pizza

  • Servings:

    Makes 2 (10") pizzas as an appetizer
  • Prep Time:

    15 minutes
  • Cook Time:

    30 minutes


For best results, pick up a block of mozzarella cheese and shred it at home. Since the pizzas only need about 10 minutes in the oven, be sure to cook any raw proteins (like sausage or ground beef) or sturdier toppings (like bell peppers and broccoli) before tossing on top.
1 (18-oz.) ball pizza dough, room temperature
All-purpose flour, for dusting
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup pizza sauce
4 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
Assorted toppings, if desired
Cast-Iron Skillet Pizza


1. Place a rack in lower-middle of oven and heat to 425 degrees.
2. Divide dough in half, then stretch each piece into a 10" circle on a lightly floured surface. Add 1 tablespoon oil to a 10" cast-iron skillet and swirl to coat. Transfer one piece of dough to skillet and press up sides of pan; cover and let sit 5 to 10 minutes while you prepare your toppings. (Cover remaining dough round and set aside for making second pizza.)
3. Pierce dough in skillet all over with a fork, then cook over medium heat until oil is bubbling around edges and bottom is lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and, working quickly but carefully, top with half of sauce, spreading it to edges of dough; sprinkle evenly with half of cheese and any additional toppings.
4. Carefully transfer to oven (handle will be hot) and cook until cheese is bubbling and beginning to brown and underside of crust is deeply browned and crispy, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove skillet from oven and transfer pizza to a cutting board. Let rest 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.
5. Repeat with remaining ingredients. (Since second piece of dough has already rested and skillet is already quite hot, you can skip the resting and stovetop steps.)
