Cast-Iron Pizza Pie

I love shortcuts, so I created this cast-iron pizza using the convenience of frozen bread dough. It's versatile, so pile on your family's favorite pizza toppings. — Carol Gillespie, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania

    8 servings


  • 1/4 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed and halved
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 can (8 ounces) pizza sauce
  • 3 ounces sliced pepperoni
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano


  • Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, cook sausage, green pepper and onion over medium heat until sausage is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, 8-10 minutes, breaking up sausage into crumbles; drain.
  • Roll half of dough into a 12-in. circle. Transfer to a 10-in. cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet. Layer with half of each of the following: mozzarella, Parmesan and pizza sauce. Top with the sausage mixture, pepperoni, mushrooms and 1/8 teaspoon oregano.
  • Roll out remaining dough to fit top of pie. Place over filling; seal edges. Layer with remaining pizza sauce, cheeses and oregano. Bake until golden brown, 18-22 minutes.

    It rose around the crust, because I didn't dock it with a fork and I cooked it on a sheet pan, increased the time to 35 minutes. It over flowed a bit but didn't burn. Liked that top crust I punctured holes in it then added more sauce parmesan, and pepperoni an cheese. coated the rim of crust with some olive oil. Adventurous because my kitchen got to hop while waiting for dough to heat up and rise, so used the cookie sheet,
