Deep Dish Pizza Recipe in a Cast Iron Skillet

This deep-dish pizza recipe is as easy as homemade pizza gets! We love pizza night but sometimes you have to switch it up. This delicious recipe is a fun twist on your classic homemade pizza and can still be customized with any toppings or sauce you want!

Using a cast-iron skillet for this recipe makes cooking and clean-up so easy. And don’t worry, we won’t judge you if you use homemade pizza dough and sauce if that means more time for the family!

Pro-tip: this is a great recipe to sneak vegetables in for the kids since they’ll be buried beneath sauce and cheese! They’ll never know the difference.
