How to make Skillet pizza

Starter

  1. Making a starter is not absolutely necessary but it will provide a more complex flavor for the dough. Combine flour, water and the yeast in an airtight container and put it into the fridge for 4 – 6 hours. It will double in size so choose a big enough box.Dough starter - SunCakeMom

Dough

  1. Measure flour into a kneading bowl and sprinkle fresh yeast on top. No need to dissolve the yeast.Freash yeast dough - SunCakeMom
  2. Pour in the olive oil and at least half of the water.Freash yeast dough - SunCakeMom
  3. Add the starter in too. It tends to stick to the box but mixing it with some flour from the bowl will help salvage every bit without much effort. If starter is not used, just add the equivalent amount of flour and water to the bowl.Freash yeast dough - SunCakeMom
  4. Knead the dough until it comes together, gradually adding the remaining water and the salt. We are after a sticky humid dough as we are going to bake the pizza in a low temperature home oven. Flouring our hand will prevent the dough to stick to it. Fresh yeast dough - SunCakeMom
  5. Take the dough out onto a floured surface.Fresh yeast dough - SunCakeMom
  6. Separate into two and shape the dough into elongated forms for easier measuring.Fresh yeast dough - SunCakeMom
  7. Cut the dough up into 6 equal parts, that should make over 4oz / 120g balls which will be enough to cover a Ø8″ / Ø20.5cm skillet nicely.Healthy homemade pizza recipe - SunCakeMom
  8. Make balls from the dough, cover them with a wet kitchen cloth and keep them until double in a 68°F  – 81°F / 20°C – 27°C place for 45 – 90 minutes. It’s an optional step but it helps a lot when stretching the pizza by hand.Skillet pizza recipe - SunCakeMom

Sauce

  1. Pour oil into a pan and caramelize the onions then add the crushed garlic and fry it until it gets fragrant. (Check out the Low Carb Condiments for detailed Tomato Sauce recipe)Onion Diced GP SunCakeMom
  2. Pour the pureed tomato and add basil, oregano and salt then cook it on low heat until about quarter of the liquid evaporates. Add salt to taste.Healthy homemade pizza recipe - SunCakeMom

Topping

  1. Grate the cheese and cut the necessary ingredients up.Slice-mozarella-gp-SunCakeMom

Assembly

  1. Stretch the dough to the size of the skillet. If we let the dough raise, it should be elastic enough to be able to do the stretching by hand otherwise use a rolling pin. Oiled or floured hands will keep the dough from sticking to our hands. Check out How to shape a pizza like a pro!Skillet pizza recipe - SunCakeMom
  2. Place the dough into the skillet or just leave it where it was stretched.Skillet pizza recipe - SunCakeMom
  3. Cover the dough and place the skillet with the dough to a 68°F  – 81°F / 20°C – 27° place to raise for about 30 minutes. When the growth starts to be visible we can proceed to the next step.Skillet pizza recipe - SunCakeMom
  4. Spread  1-3 spoon of sauce all over the dough.Skillet pizza recipe - SunCakeMom
  5. Add favorite toppings and cheese. Set the oven’s broiler to its maximum then start making our skillet pizza on the cooktop on medium to high heat.Skillet pizza recipe - SunCakeMom
  6. After about 30 – 60 seconds we may check the bottom of the pizza. If golden brown spots are already there, the crust is done.Skillet pizza recipe - SunCakeMom
  7. With the oven’s broiler already on, put the skillet onto the top shelf for 3 – 5 minutes until the cheese is melted and golden brown spots are visible all around the pizza.Skillet pizza recipe - SunCakeMom

Enjoy!

Note: The raw dough can be kept in the fridge in airtight containers for at least a week. When a dough is needed, just stretch and put it into the skillet then carry on as it were a fresh dough.
