🍕My Skillet Pizza recipe:
3/4 cup warm water
1 1/2 tsp. active dry yeast
2 cups plus 2 tbsp. bread flour
3/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp olive oil (plus more for oiling surfaces)
Warm 3/4 cup water to around 110 degrees F. Pour the warm water into a large mixing bowl. Add 1 1/2 tsp. active dry yeast, stir. Leave it to bloom for around 10-15 minutes.
Mix 1 cup of flour into the water/yeast mixture. Mix in 3/4 tsp salt and 1 tbsp oil. Add more flour until dough is soft and slightly tacky, but not totally incorporated. Let dough rest for 2-5 minutes. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for around 1-2 minutes until it’s smooth.
Let dough rest for 5 minutes; rinse and dry mixing bowl, coat with a light coating of oil. Knead dough a few more turns, shape into a ball. Put dough into the mixing bowl and coat it with oil, turn it over so all surfaces are coated with oil. Cover with a towel and let rise for 1 1/2 hours or until doubled in volume/size.
Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Lightly coat two cast iron skillets with oil. Divide dough into two portions. Shape each portion into a ball. On a lightly oiled work surface, and with lightly oiled hands, press each ball of dough into a round that fits into the cast iron skillet. Lift each dough round into its cast iron skillet. Place the cast iron skillets on burners on the stove.
Turn the burners to just above medium heat. Add sauce and cheese and other toppings as desired. When the sides of the crust start to look dry-ish, transfer the cast iron skillets to the preheated oven.
Cook 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and browned. Remove from the oven and then from the skillets. Rest on a cooling rack for 10-15 minutes before cutting. Get out of the way of the teenagers in your house, they are coming for this pizza!
