how to make a skillet pizza | kelly’s kitchen

  1. I’ve made pizzas in a grill pan on the stovetop before, but never in this way – so interesting to place the cheese first! Will definitely try this recipe – thanks, Kelly!

    • Good morning Anne! Thank you for checking out today’s recipe. I am sure you will like this method of cooking pizza, it’s so simple and delicious. xo Kelly

  2. Marcie says:

    Kelly, I love Chicago style pizza. Thank you for your lesson and great tips for the perfect pizza pie. Love that you have a cast iron skillet handed down from your mom.

    • Hello Marcie, thank you so much! You know, I use that skillet for just about everything I cook on the stovetop. I absolutely love it! Enjoy your weekend, xo Kelly

    Hi Kelly,
    You scored another winner. Your pan pizza tutorial is fantastic. All our questions were answered as you went along. Can’t wait to try it.

    • Oh, Thank you so much Julie! I am so happy to have addressed possible questions in my tutorial. That is a big success in my book! Thanks again, do let me know how your pizza comes out, xo Kelly

    Next to Friday’s with Oscar this is a delightful new addition. Thank you Kelly

    Kelly, Great pizza recipe. Thanks for the tip about letting the dough rise a bit more to get it more pliable to spread out on the skillet or pan. Making it this weekend! Many thanks

  6. Deanna says:

    Oh MY! This looks delicious and doable! I think I have everything but cheese here at the house. But I like the idea of overnight dough, so by tomorrow I should have the rest of the ingredients to give this a whirl! Stay safe and have a great week!

  7. Carroll Niesen says:

    That looks delicious!! The things you cook look so beautiful!

    • Thank you, Carroll, that’s so kind of you to say. I hope you give the pizza a try, I’m sure it will be great! Have a beautiful weekend, xo Kelly

    This looks amazing Kelly! We will definitely give this a try. Right now, yeast is impossible to find in our grocery stores so may need to wait a while. My husband and I made a delicious chicken pot pie for our comfort food this week. Made a chicken stock with carrots, onions and a very little Knorr’s bullion cube. Then added cooked potatoes and made a roux with butter, flour, milk and the stock. Put in the pie crust and topped with another crust. So good. Have enjoyed all your tutorials!

    • Hi Kelly, I have been experiencing a yeast shortage here in Athens, too. Luckily we managed to find a big bag of Bob’s Red Mill yeast a while back…Chicken pot pie is such a perfect comfort food. Your recipe sounds great! Beth ordered take out pot pie from Lindsey’s Culinary Market for Fridays with Oscar and it was such a joy! Thank you so much for tuning in today, have a wonderful weekend. xo Kelly

  9. Paula says:

    This looks really good I’ll have to give it a try. Not too good with dough but I’ll try it because it looks so good. Thanks!

  10. Terry says:

    Looks delicious Kelly! I love Italian sausage pizza. We eat pizza very rarely but now it is comfort food time. Thank you.

  11. Sangita Madan says:

    Thanks again Kelly for yet another great recipie. Loved your note at the end. Isn’t that life though? You do your best and sometimes things don’t always turn out the way you expect, but it doesn’t mean it’s bad right?
    Always look forward to your recipies!
    Be well.

    • Hi Sangita, Exactly! One always has to keep on, keepin’ on. 🙂 Thank you so much for reading my post today. Take care and be well, xo Kelly

  12. Sandra says:

    Can I use bread flour

    • Hi Sandra, Yes you can definitely use bread flour instead of AP. In fact, your crust will likely have a bit more chew. Should be pretty perfect! Be well, xo Kelly

  13. Beth Crawford says:

    This looks fabulous! I have to be gluten free so I’m not sure if this will work with gluten free flour. We are in Florida getting ready to travel home to Michigan. When I get home and settled I will give it a try. Thank you for sharing your recipes with us I really appreciate it !

  14. Suzanne M Smith says:

    Mmmm. Sounds fantastic. I love a home-made pizza. That looks delicious! I haven’t done one in a pan before–I’ve done them on a stone in the oven, but this is a great idea. I like the cheese under the sauce, too. I’m a huge marghareta pizza fan, with fresh mozzarella, tomato, basil. But that said, I’ve never turned any pizza down! I’ll have to try your pan method. Your directions are excellent and easy to follow.

    • Hi Suzanne, I love marghareta pizza too – absolute perfection! This pan pizza is nice because it’s less finicky than a thin crust. I hope you give it a try and let me know what you think. Like you, I can never turn a pizza, no matter what! Thank you so much for all your support, it means a lot to me. Have a lovely weekend, xo Kelly

    That looks fabulous!

  16. Eve says:

    This looks so good. I probably won’t try it because I’m not much of a cook with with anything made from dough but there is one comfort food from my childhood I would love to know how to bake. My Mom made tea cakes that were chewy in the middle and crispy around the edges and big. They were popular during the depression. In some ways, they resemble a snickerdoodle. No cinnamon though. Can you help?

    • Hello Eve, I will certainly dive into this tea cake idea, it sounds heavenly. I am not always successful with dough either. But, when it works out it’s very rewarding. Stay tuned… I will see what I can come up with for your tea cakes. Take care, be well, xo Kelly

  17. Kristine says:

    Thank you for making this so clearly step-by-step. This looks way above my skill set but with every step so specific, I may have the gumption to give this a try!

    • Hi Kristine! You should definitely give it a try, it’s more forgiving than you might think. Plus, when topped with cheese and sauce, even a dough that doesn’t rise to its highest potential is still going to be good! Thank you so much for stopping by today, xo Kelly

  18. Susan says:

    Kelly thanks for sharing one of my favorite foods. I will have to give this a try.

  19. Andrea says:

    Can hardly wait to try this, Kelly! Love making homemade pizza, but lost my old crust recipe and this looks perfect. Thanks, stay safe and healthy 💪

  20. pamela says:

    i can’t wait to try this because i love thick crust. i’m also going to make a GF version & hope that turns out. thank you.

  21. Heidi says:

    I have wanted to learn to make your pizza for years! Thank you for sharing your recipe, tips and tricks. I don’t have a cast iron pan, but now have a reason to invest in one. Let me know if you have recommendations on pans–is there a difference between expensive and less expensive brands? Thanks, Kelly! Love being in your kitchen with you. 🙂

    • Hey Heidi! So good to see you here, Ms. Bohi. I recommend cast iron for everything! I love Field cast iron pans. If that’s too pricey, then go for Lodge, I have a few Lodge products and I love them too. I got a Field pan as a wedding gift last year and I use it all the time; in fact pan I am using for my sauce in this post is my Field pan. Perfectly seasoned. They get better the more you use them so…Talk soon, Heidi. xo Kelly
