Did You Know Your Trusty Ol’ Cast Iron Skillet Can Make THIS?

What I absolutely love about this way of making pizza, is that the crust turns out so flavorful. Trust me – I’m pretty good at making pizza but it has never turned out this tasty, when I’ve made it the regular way!

What I want to try next is to use the cast iron skillet to cook pizza over an open flame. I think if I put a foil on top, it will bake just perfectly – let me know if you have great tips on that one! Obviously, like any pizza, you can omit or add any of your favorite ingredients. As is, this one makes 4 big slices, each one about 400 calories. That’s awesome!



For a 10″ cast iron skillet:

1 small or medium sweet onion, cut in half and sliced

1 tbsp Bertolli olive oil

½ cup Del Monte pizza sauce

2/3 cup cheeses of your choice, shredded

1/4 cup chopped tomato

red peppers, chopped

4 oz. rotisserie chicken

14 oz. whole wheat pizza dough

oregano and basil



Preheat oven to 400 F.

Caramelize the onions in olive oil. Season the skillet. Roll out your homemade or store-bought pizza dough into right size, place it in the cast iron skillet. Let it rest for a few minutes.

Add pizza sauce, then top with caramelized onions, chopped tomato, rotisserie chicken and chopped peppers. Add the cheese of your choice. Sprinkle some oregano and basil on top. Bake for about 20 to 25-minutes.
