And I especially like pan pizza from pizza hut. The crispy crust just sends my mouth into joyous rapture! I have a really good recipe for pizza, but had never quite figured out how to make that yummy crisp crust. Over the weekend, I finally put the pieces together. I had used a cast iron skillet before, but it didn't quite do the trick.
So, I tried preheating the pan, while preheating the oven to 425 degrees. I sprayed it with a bit of pan spray first.
Then I worked on getting all my lovely toppings ready. I also pre-formed the dough to the approximate shape of the pan. When the pan had heated about 15 minutes, I removed it from the oven and built my pizza.
I finished with a brush of melted butter around the crust and sprinkled all over with Parmesan and garlic powder.
Baked it for 15 minutes at 425 degrees, then brought it out of oven, and it came right out of the pan.
Look at the yummy crusty cheese around the bottom. This was such a good dinner on Friday, we had it for lunch on Saturday.
These were individual sized pizzas, in smaller cast iron skillets. However, I think that the larger skillets or dutch oven type pans would work for a larger pizza. We like the individual sized ones because we get to choose the toppings we like best.
