Pizza Pizza!

Pizza is one of those foods I could eat every day.  We love making homemade pizza with our pizza stone.  Lately, though, we've been making pizza in our cast iron skillet, Chicago-style.

{assembled and ready to go in the oven}

I used this Cast Iron Pizza recipe, adapting it quite a bit.  First, I use this pizza dough recipe from Bon Appetit.  We brushed some melted butter on the bottom and sides of our pan to give it a nice buttery taste.  For toppings, we browned some spicy Italian sausage (we used one link, removing it from the casing, but I might use 2 in the future for our 12" cast iron).  We also sauteed some sliced mushrooms (6 large cremini) and chopped garlic (2 cloves) in olive oil.  Once the dough was in the pan, we put the toppings in first, then the cheese, then a can of crushed tomatoes (drained of juices).  We cooked the pizza as directed in the Cast Iron Pizza recipe and voila!
