Cooking - Stove Top Pizza9:06 AM
|Stove Top Pizza|
BackStory: I came home last night to discover that my oven wasn't working. We're having work done on the house so we've been having random electrical issues. Last night it was, apparently, the oven's turn to not work! (Blasted oven) Since I posted this sign on the chore chart in the morning

For this recipe you will need:
Pizza Dough (homemade or store bought it fine)
Skillet or flat pan
Note: My kids will only eat cheese pizza. If you'd like to add other toppings, that's fine, but make sure that meats are fully cooked.
I make homemade pizza dough. It's SUPER easy and the ingredients are always on hand.
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 envelope dry yeast
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 cup WARM - NOT HOT water
Mix everything in a bowl and let it rest for 10-15 minutes.
A while back I did an entire blog post about homemade pizza. You can find that here.
If you don't have the ingredients on hand or if you're not in the mood to make dough, you can usually buy a ball of fresh pizza dough at the supermarket or a local pizza shop for about a $1.
|Pre made dough works too!|
What To Do:
Gather your ingredients so that you have everything within reach. Parts of this process go quickly. Place your skillet over medium heat and allow the pan to get hot.
|Pre-heat your pan|
|Roll out the dough|
|Drizzle hot pan with oil|
|Add dough to hot pan|
|Dock your dough|
|Turn the dough over|
|Add sauce, cheese and other toppings|
|Quickly add cheese and toppings|
|Tent the cooking pizza|
|Bottom dough perfectly brown!|
Now for a few glamour shots!
|Ready for my close up!|
|Thin crust version|
If the crust is brown before the cheese if fully melted, turn the fire off but leave the pizza on the stove with the cover on. for few minutes. The heat from the pizza will melt the cheese.
