    • 1

      Preheat the oven to 500.

    • 2

      Using a paper towel, grease the bottom and sides of a seasoned cast iron skillet with the canola oil.

    • 3

      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.

    • 4

      Spread the sauce evenly across the dough, then top with the mozzarella and sausage or your toppings of choice.

    • 5

      Bake the pizza for about 20 minutes, until the mozzarella is bubbling and golden and the crust is brown and crispy.

    • 6

      Transfer the cooked pizza to a cutting board and slice into wedges. Serve immediately.
