Homemade Hawaiian and Supreme Pizza in a Cast Iron Pan

I LOVE pizza. We usually just go out and pick one up. But last week we saw this great deal on a HUGE brick of mozzerella cheese. So I decided to use some of my fresh cheese up by making some pizzas.  

Homemade Pizza on a Pizza stone…

Pizza crust is really easy to mix up if you have a mixmaster. I just dump the ingredients in and the machine does all the work mixing and kneading it a bit. For a better crust, sprinkle  cornmeal on the prepared pizza pan. To prevent soggy crusts, use sauce kind of  sparingly.

My old pizza stone has seen better days…..
But it always makes a great pizza!

My family loves PREGO spaghetti sauce. I never use up the huge 64 ounce jugs we get at Costco with one family spaghetti dinner . So this is a great way to use up any leftover marinara sauce or spaghetti sauce you have in the fridge. 

My favorite pizza sauce….

Now my son and daughter-in-law got me these cute Skookie cast iron cookie pans awhile back and I hadn’t had a chance to use them yet. But what about little individual deep dish pizzas? Now doesn’t that sound SUPER fun?  

Snookie makes a cool pizza pie pan! 

Here’s the box they came in. And guess what I found when I opened it up? Each one has a little hot pad fajita type handle cover. SO bleeping CUTE! 

Aren’t the little hot pads just the  cutest little things? It came with a cute pair and his and hers SKOOKIE pans!  
Adding oil to my Skookie Pans for homemade Hawaiian and Supreme Pizza! 

Anyway, here’s my pizza dough and  fixin’s …….
Ingredients for Pizza Dough

1 package active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (not hot, you’ll kill the yeast)
1 Tablespoon sugar  Combine yeast, water and then add sugar. Set aside.
Then mix

2 1/2 cups bread flour (or all purpose) plus 1/4 cup extra when rolling out
2 Tablespoons olive oil 
1 teaspoon salt
Then add in the yeast mixture. Mix with dough hook in mixer for a few minutes. Roll out on pizza stone.  ( I usually have enough for 2 mediums.
Add sauce and toppings. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes on 425.

Baking Directions

  1. Bake at 375 degrees C (190 degrees C) for 20 + minutes. Allow pizza to cool for 5 minutes before slicing.
Spread the pizza dough in the Skookie Pans….these will be cute pizzas! 
Sauce those pizzas up! 

My favorite is Canadian Bacon or real bacon and pineapple. It’s yummy! 

Ham and Pineapple pizza (actually bacon and pineapple) 
John’s on the left, mine on the right….his and hers….hehe

John’s favorite is supreme. I use sausage, olives, peppers and onions to his. I was out of sausage in this pic so he is stuck with bacon on his. 

Finished homemade Hawaiian Pizza and Supreme Pizza.  
Homemade Pizza in a cast iron fry pan….so cute! 
I love how these pizzas turn out…it looks like a fajita pan these individual pizzas are sooooo cute! 

Kids love to make their own individual pizzas in these cast iron pans too. 

My daughter’s favorite is barbequed chicken. Just add barbeque sauce to   some chicken sliced 1/4 inch strips. Add cheese and mushrooms slightly sauteed in butter and garlic. 

 I used to love Taco Pizza. Just use leftover taco meat, cheese, tomato and some Doritos crushed. These are unusual and  winners when you are having a tailgate or sports party at your house.  Mmmmhmmm……everybody loves a pizza pie.
