Deep Dish Iron Skillet Pizza

Iron Skillet Pizza Crust


  • 1 packet Pizza Crust Yeast – I used Fleishman’s
  • About 2 Cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Sugar
  • ¾ teaspoons salt
  • 2/3 Cup very warm water
  • 3 Tablespoons of oil – I used olive oil


  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 F and oil iron skillet getting it in the corners really well.
  2. Combine 1 cup of the flour, un-dissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a bowl.
  3. Add water and oil and mix with a wooden spoon for about a minute.
  4. Add some of the rest of the flour, a little at a time, until it makes a ball but is still a little bit sticky.
  5. Flour your board or clean cabinet and put the dough ball on there kneading until it is not sticky but soft and pliable. For those like me who didn’t know what “soft and pliable” meant for a long time – just do it for about 4 minutes and you’ll see the difference.
  6. Put the dough in the iron skillet and work it evenly up on the sides of the skillet. Notice there was no rising time?
