Chicken, Spinach & Tomato Pizza in a Cast Iron Skillet


There's nothing like homemade pizza.

Friends, you have to try this.

I brought out my trusty cast iron skillet again and put it to very good use. You can create a pizzeria-style deep dish with your skillet. Add all of your favorite toppings and cheeses enjoy a couple slices of heaven.

I'm already thinking of what pizza I am going to create next. I'm positive that this easy dish is going to become a weekly staple in our home.


Chicken, Spinach & Tomato Pizza in a Cast Iron Skillet

Ingredients

Pizza dough (I bought mine)
1/4 cup tomato basil pizza sauce
1 cup mozzarella, shredded
1/2 cup smoked Gouda, shredded
1 small onion, diced
1 cup of spinach
1-2 sliced fresh tomatoes
1-2 cooked chicken breast, diced or shredded
Olive oil (to oil the skillet)
Cast iron skillet

Directions

Preheat the oven to 500F.

Spread a little olive oil inside the cast iron skillet, then stretch the dough to cover the bottom of the skillet and go about 1 inch up the sides.

Add pizza sauce, half of the cheese, the spinach, tomatoes, chicken and the remaining cheese.

Place in oven for 15-20 minutes or until brown, crispy and cheese is bubbling.

  1. Oh, what a great idea! I just re-seasoned my cast iron skillet. I'd LOVE to make a pizza on it. I think my husband would love it too. I'd probably go the easier route and get a premade dough too. Trader joes to the rescue!
