 Have you heard of skillet pizza? I’m fall in love with skillet pizza nowadays. Baking a perfect skillet pizza isn’t a difficult work. And the cooking method consists of baking the pizza under a broiler in a preheated and very hot cast iron skillet. It only takes a couple of minutes for the pizza to cook and the crust to bubble up. The surface would become wonderfully charred and the whole crust would be crispy. In addition, pizza cooked by this way is very similar to a brick-oven baked one. Here I would like to share with you one of my favorite Cast iron PIZZA recipes---- easy Italy sausage cherry tomatoes skillet pizza. It is super yummy and my family really like this special Italy food and always ask me to make it. So, here is the recipe. Hope you like it.
