Favorite New food!!!!!

Cast Iron Skillet Pizza!!!!
Preheat your oven to 450

what you will need:
cast iron skillet
olive oil
1 package yeast
1tsp. agave nectar (or sugar if you want)
1 c. warm water
2 1/2 c. flour
2 T. olive oil
1 tsp. salt
and whatever sauce and toppings you dig!

Combine the yeast, agave (sugar) and warm water in a bowl, stir and let sit for 10 minutes
During that 10 minute period I mix the other ingredients to get them ready for the yeasties
After 10 minutes add your dry ingredients to your yeast water, cover with towel and let sit for 5 minutes
grease your skillet, fill the bottom with half of your dough (this recipe makes 2 skillet pizzas) poke fork holes in the dough then lightly brush with olive oil
put it in the preheated oven for about 5-10 minutes- until the top starts to brown a bit
pull it out and slather it with sauce and veggies

Here is what we like on our pizza!
black and green olives
fresh garlic
fresh chopped onion
tomato slices

We even mixed all of our veggies in with our sauce, and then put it on the pizza
sprinkle a layer of nutritional yeast on the top for a cheesey flavor- it honestly even looks like melted cheese when you put a decent amount!
bake for about 15-20 minutes, you can check the bottom with a spatula, when it starts to brown and get crispy...depends on how you like your pizza!

Sorry there are no photos for this recipe, my batteries died at a bad time! hah

Enjoy, if you do make it please share with us what toppings and how it came out!!!

I made it tonight! Thanks so much for this recipe. I used what I thought was a iron cast skillet but much to my mothers dismay I used a pan with a plastic handle -_- Besides that everything went smoothly. I cut this recipe in half and guesstimated as I normally do when I cook and I think it came out great! I put fried onions, mushrooms, and red peppers on mine. I'll post a picture when I upload them. :]
