Craving Chicago deep dish but nowhere near the Windy City? Grab your trusty cast iron skillet and satisfy your appetite for pizza in less time than it takes to call for delivery. Make sure to use a seasoned cast iron pan to get the crispiest crust without sticking.
|1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil||1/4 pound fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced|
|1 ball pre-made pizza dough, at room temperature||1/4 pound cooked Italian sausage (or your favorite pizza topping)|
|1/2 cup marinara or your favorite tomato sauce|
Preheat the oven to 500.
Using a paper towel, grease the bottom and sides of a seasoned cast iron skillet with the canola oil.
On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to gently shape the dough into a circle a few inches larger than the skillet, then transfer the dough to the oiled pan. The dough will bounce back, but press it gently up the sides as much as possible.
Spread the sauce evenly across the dough, then top with the mozzarella and sausage or your toppings of choice.
Bake the pizza for about 20 minutes, until the mozzarella is bubbling and golden and the crust is brown and crispy.
Transfer the cooked pizza to a cutting board and slice into wedges. Serve immediately.
