This crust also makes a delicious traditional style pizza baked on a pizza pan. This recipe makes enough dough and sauce for two 12 inch pizzas. The dough stores very well in the refrigerator for a few days or in the freezer for weeks. I make a batch of dough and sauce one week and have enough of both leftover to make our pizza the following week.
I have used both homemade pizza dough and the store bought varieties to make great pizzas in my cast iron skillet. This is our favorite recipe. It’s simple to make and tastes delicious. If you prefer to use a store bought pizza crust, you will need around 14 ounces for a 12 inch skillet and 10 to 12 ounces for a 9-10 inch skillet pizza.
During the summer, I cook our pizza on the grill. It bakes up beautifully and we don't heat up the farmhouse by running the oven. Simply heat the grill to around 425 degrees before placing the prepared skillet directly on the grill. Cover and cook for 12-14 minutes. Remove the pan from the grill and allow to cool for 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
