I'd say heat the skillet really hot first and then slide the pizza in using a pizza paddle, rimless baking sheet or if you have neither, an upturned baking sheet (so it has no rim). If you have some cornmeal or semolina, scatter that on the baking sheet then place the rolled (shaped) dough on that, then add toppings. The cornmeal will help the pizza slide off into the skillet.Going to make a deep dish pizza in a cast iron skillet. Anybody have any tips ? What to do, what not to do.
Far as I'm concerned, pizza dough is simply basic bread dough. I often make a loaf of bread and reserve a third of the dough for a pizza. Allow dough to rise, knock back and roll out/shape. No need to prove again.I am simply going to have to learn how to make my own pizza dough, and I should have the ingredients here.
First of all, I'm truly humbled by that. Thank you. BTW, my favorite local pizza place here is Cassano's, though their full name is "Cassano's Pizza King," so being called the resident pizza king makes me feel pretty damn good.I think you are the resident "Pizza King"
You may be a bit disappointed, because I'm a less-is-more guy with pizza, and something of a traditionalist at heart (my favorite pizza is...cheese pizza, haha!), so I'm going to recommend a few:Please put your Chef's hat on and design a pizza for me.
Ok, either break those tomatoes up or zip them with a stick blender/food processor. Get a saucepan, heat a tablespoon or so of olive oil gently. With the tomatoes, I'm basing everything off of about a 15 oz can of crushed tomatoes. Don't add the tomatoes yet.OMG - I still do not know where to start.
Please choose a meat and give me a sauce recipe. I have made pizza exactly once in my life. Left to my own imagination I will over do the sauce and the toppings. Being a pizza neophyte I need specific directions. I appreciate "less is best". I just do not know how to do that.
Talk to me like I am a 3 year old. Select a protein. Give me a sauce recipe. Tell me exactly what and how I need to do every step. Remember I am 3 years old.
