  • 14" cast iron pizza pan
  • 14" cast iron skillet


  • 1 tbsp yeast rapid rise
  • 1 cup water warm from the tap
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • cups flour
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • pizza sauce
  • pizza toppings
  • pizza blend cheese


  • Preheat oven to 425°F
  • Add yeast to a mixing bowl. Pour the 1 cup hot tap water over it and mix.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and let the mixer run at medium speed until the dough clears the side of the bowl. The dough shouldn't be sticky.
  • Let dough rest in a bowl 15-20 minutes while you preheat the oven and prepare the toppings.
  • On a large cast iron pizza pan or 14" skillet, sprinkle cornmeal generously (this prevents sticking when fully cooked).
  • With oiled hands, remove the dough from the bowl and pull/shape into a circle, then lay it on top of your cornmeal coated pan.
  • Using a rolling pin or your hands, flatten and stretch the dough to fill the pan.
  • Bake the dough for 10 minutes.
  • Remove prebaked crust from the oven and spread with your toppings: sauce, shredded cheese, favorite toppings.
  • Place topped pizza back into oven and bake for 10-15 minutes more, or until cheese is melted and toppings are browned.
  • Slide the whole pizza from the pan to a cutting board and slice into pieces.

    I was surprised how much the cornmeal helped keep these from sticking down. I felt that the taste was very distinct cooking it on cast iron.
