Last night manthing wanted pizza or pancakes for dinner. After some internet bantering it was decided that pizza was going to be it. Since I was not going to fire up the oven for a single pizza and my regular cookie sheet was dirty, I had to figure out just how I was going to make said pizza. After a minute or two of thought, it hit me! Why not make a deep dish pizza pie in the cast iron skillet. It came out quite splendid though it was more like a pizza pot pie than a pizza since I went a little bit crazy on the dough making.
a garlic sauce with oregano, onion, tomato, chicken, shrooms, broccoli n cheeses) and rolled the edges of the crust down around the edges.
To cook, I simply set the pan on the stove top with a few chunks of broken brick under it. This is to keep the bottom from burning and to allow the toppings to heat properly and cook. I then placed a lid over the top of the pan to keep the heat in and do its job. I do flat pan pizzas in the same manner but I cook all the toppings(but the cheese) prior to adding them on the crust since it cooks much quicker.
