No need to heat up the house with this easy Stove Top Skillet Pizza. You can have dinner from stove to table in 30 minutes.
Pizza is one of those meals that will pretty much please everyone! I make homemade pizza year round, but during the summer it can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. We don't dare crank up the oven, so most times my husband and I just grill our pizza outside, especially if we're feeding a crowd.
We live in Texas and our summers are definitely hot and humid, so I really don't like standing outside in 100+ degrees, dripping with sweat assembling pizzas. Making homemade pizza should be a simple and not time consuming or complicated.
To solve our pizza cooking dilemma, we make Stove Top Skillet Pizza using a cast iron pan. Cooking your pizza on the stove top is quick , easy and dinner can go from stove top to table in 30 minutes. Now that's simple!!! For this particular pizza recipe I used the new
12 - inch Lodge Cast Iron Dual Handle Pan.
This dual handle pan is new to my collection, but no worries because it came pre-seasoned and ready to use. I've been cooking with Lodge cast iron for as long as I can remember. My mother cooked with it, so that's how I was taught. I have included just a few of my favorite pieces below.
Lodge cast iron cookware is also made in the USA and really easy to clean! Just hand wash (with mild soap), dry promptly, rub with oil and store. As you can see I have a glass-top stove and I use my cast iron pans on my stove top all the time. Just take care not to drop the pan or slide it across the glass surface.
I have included step-by-step photos to show you how easily this skillet pizza came together. Once the pizza was cooked I placed the dual handle pan under my oven broiler for just a few minutes to brown up the edges a bit. I ❤ how easily this dual handle pan is to hold and goes from stove top to oven in a snap.
I'm still amazed every time I make this pizza at just how easy the whole process is. If you make this recipe stop back by and let me know how you liked it! Happy pizza making!!!!!
