Work in Progress: Cast Iron Skillet Pizza

Dinner:  January 24, 2008

While I’ve been fiddling around with my meatless chili recipe, Mike has done some tinkering of his own. This is the latest version of his “wintertime” pizza made in our trusty cast iron skillet. With its thick, buttery crust, this pizza is a completely different beast than the grilled pizza he makes in the warmer months of the year, but it is just as delicious.

  1. Looks cool.

    Details of the experimentation, Mr. Dash of Bitters…

    Is it a traditional Italian (flour, water, and yeast) style crust or a more American deep dish style crust? Pre-heat the skillet, like you would a pizza stone?

    May I join the others begging for the full recipe?????

    I normally do my pizza on the grill, but this cast iron thing is tempting…… I just hope you don t have to heat the pan for a long time before adding the dough. With my lack of coordination, I would probably burn myself pretty bad… 🙂

  3. Hopefully the recipe isn’t one of those, “if I tell you I’ll have to kill you” kinda things. I’d really like to make that crust!

    WOW everyone – this is some response! I don’t think Mike is quite ready to share this one yet, but he’s planning to make it again very soon, and hopefully at that point I can get him to post his recipe. 🙂
