Mozzarella skillet pizza

Total time: 40 minutes

Serves: 4


Pizza Dough

  • 2 tsp brown sugar 
  • 1 ? cup lukewarm water
  • 7g active dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, extra for the skillet
  • 3 ¼ cups plain flour, plus more for kneading and rolling
  • ¾ tsp salt


  • ½ cup prepared tomato sauce
  • 2 balls of fresh mozzarella, grated
  • Handful cherry tomatoes, chopped in half
  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaves
  • Olive or truffle oil, for drizzling
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


In a large bowl, mix the sugar in the lukewarm water then add the yeast and stir until the yeast has dissolved. Set aside until the top is foamy.

Add the olive oil, flour and salt, mixing until a rough ball of dough comes together.

Using your hands, knead the dough onto a floured surface until a smooth ball forms. Add a little more flour if the dough is too sticky. Be careful not to over-knead or dry out as it should be smooth and elastic.

Place back in the well-oiled bowl, with a towel over the top, and let it sit in a warm place for 15 minutes to double in size.

Divide the dough in half and make two balls. Set one ball aside in the bowl and roughly roll the other ball out to the size of the skillet.

Get your fire going, coat the cast iron skillet with oil and place the dough in the skillet; pushing the dough to the edges.

Cook the dough on the fire for three to five minutes, until the dough forms a firm crust. 

Remove the skillet from heat and flip the base over. 

Add the toppings, except the basil, and place back on the fire and cook for about five minutes or until the mozzarella has melted. Add basil, salt, pepper and drizzle oil on top. Slice and serve. 

Repeat this process for the next batch of dough.
