This past week, this happened. And it was a great happening. It was gooey, cheesy, doughy, crusty and totally delectable. If you have a cast iron skillet, this meal is so dang easy. You know I love easy meals.
I just buy a premade dough from Publix. You can make your own and I plan on doing it some day but this is just so dang convenient. Take it out of the fridge and let it sit for an hour before you work with it.
Get your cast iron and pour some oil on the pan. I use grapeseed but you can use olive.
Get your dough and for lack of a better word, smoosh it in the pan. Use your hands or a fork to get rid of air bubbles. I flip it over once or twice so it’s covered with oil on both sides. Sprinkle some mozzarella cheese on top of this and stick it in the oven at 400 degrees for about 5 minutes.
USE a glove because the handle is hot and heavy!! Now, lay on some spaghetti sauce and sprinkle on your favorite toppings. Be generous!
I used leftover sauce I had in the fridge. Ours had chicken apple sausage, onions, mushrooms and tons of cheese. Fresh mozzarella would be awesome. Place back in the oven for about 20-30 minutes depending on the size of your cast iron skillet. When the cheese is all melted, it’s done.
Take it out when the cheese looks like the above pic. I put mine back on the stove for about 3 minutes so I could get an even crispier crust but this is optional. Wait at least 5 minutes so that it can cool a little.
Get in ma belly!!! I just went backyard and picked my fresh basil!
YUMMMMM. SORRY I’M YELLING AT YOU BUT IT’S SO GOOD! I loved the crispy crust, doughy center and the cheezy goodness. Our family loved it and you know Jimmy is requesting it again. I’m making this for family and friends on Sunday.
Have a great weekend, friends!
