Skillet Pizza Recipe

Is bread really the foundation of human society or could we live without it? Find it out while making this tasty skillet pizza!

As I currently have some time, I was searching on the web last week. Attempting to find fresh, fascinating thoughts, inspiring meals that We have never tasted before, to astonish my loved ones with. Hunting for a while yet could not come across too many interesting things. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I came upon this delicious and simple dessert simply by chance on Suncakemom. The dessert looked so tempting

on its snapshot, it called for urgent actions.

It absolutely was not so difficult to imagine just how it’s created, its taste and just how much my husband is going to want it. Mind you, it is rather easy to keep happy the man in terms of cakes. Yes, I am a blessed one. Or possibly he is.Anyways, I went to the website and then followed the precise instuctions that have been accompanied by wonderful shots of the procedure. It just makes life rather easy. I can suppose it’s a slight inconvenience to shoot photographs in the midst of baking in the kitchen as you may usually have sticky hands therefore i genuinely appreciate the time and energy she devote to build this post and recipe conveniently implemented.

Having said that I’m empowered presenting my personal dishes in a similar fashion. Many thanks for the idea.

I had been fine tuning the original mixture create it for the taste of my family. I’ve got to mention it turned out a terrific success. They enjoyed the flavour, the thickness and loved getting a sweet such as this in the middle of a lively workweek. They basically wanted lots more, many more. Hence the next occasion I am not going to commit the same mistake. I’m gonna double the volume .

Making a starter is not absolutely necessary but it will provide a more complex flavor for the dough. Combine flour, water and the yeast in an airtight container and put it into the fridge for 4 – 6 hours. It will double in size so choose a big enough box.


Measure flour into a kneading bowl and sprinkle fresh yeast on top. No need to dissolve the yeast.

Pour in the olive oil and at least half of the water.

Add the starter in too. It tends to stick to the box but mixing it with some flour from the bowl will help salvage every bit without much effort. If starter is not used, just add the equivalent amount of flour and water to the bowl.

Knead the dough until it comes together, gradually adding the remaining water and the salt. We are after a sticky humid dough as we are going to bake the pizza in a low temperature home oven. Flouring our hand will prevent the dough to stick to it.

Take the dough out onto a floured surface.

Separate into two and shape the dough into elongated forms for easier measuring.

Cut the dough up into 6 equal parts, that should make over 4oz / 120g balls which will be enough to cover a Ø8″ / Ø20.5cm skillet nicely.

Make balls from the dough, cover them with a wet kitchen cloth and keep them until double in a 68°F – 81°F / 20°C – 27°C place for 45 – 90 minutes. It’s an optional step but it helps a lot when stretching the pizza by hand.


Pour oil into a pan and caramelize the onions then add the crushed garlic and fry it until it gets fragrant. (Check out the Low Carb Condiments for detailed Tomato Sauce recipe)

Pour the pureed tomato and add basil, oregano and salt then cook it on low heat until about quarter of the liquid evaporates. Add salt to taste.


Grate the cheese and cut the necessary ingredients up.


Stretch the dough to the size of the skillet. If we let the dough raise, it should be elastic enough to be able to do the stretching by hand otherwise use a rolling pin. Oiled or floured hands will keep the dough from sticking to our hands. Check out How to shape a pizza like a pro!

Place the dough into the skillet or just leave it where it was stretched.

Cover the dough and place the skillet with the dough to a 68°F – 81°F / 20°C – 27° place to raise for about 30 minutes. When the growth starts to be visible we can proceed to the next step.

Spread 1-3 spoon of sauce all over the dough.

Add favorite toppings and cheese. Set the oven’s broiler to its maximum then start making our skillet pizza on the cooktop on medium to high heat.

After about 30 – 60 seconds we may check the bottom of the pizza. If golden brown spots are already there, the crust is done.

With the oven’s broiler already on, put the skillet onto the top shelf for 3 – 5 minutes until the cheese is melted and golden brown spots are visible all around the pizza.
