Claire Makes Cast-Iron Skillet Pizza | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 26 February 2019
  • Join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she makes cast-iron skillet pizza with fennel and sausage. Pizza dough is usually sold as a 1-lb. ball. You only need 12 oz. for this cast-iron pizza recipe. We used a 10" pan, so if yours is bigger, use a bit more dough. Cooking sausage in the pan before adding the dough infuses the crust with porky flavor.

    Check out the recipe here:

    Claire: "...quick salad, give it a mix while the pizza is in the oven..."
    Me: "You don't make friends with salad, Claire."

      Bet the bottom of that pizza is blacker than Mr. Deeds' foot.

        She never shows the bottom of the pizza, probably because it's burned black.

          This looks so overcooked and dry.

                        It's wonderful how all videos are hosted by your average, everyday idiot trying to act intelligent, failing, but being lovable in the end (mostly because you can relate to that situation of trying to act different like in a job interview) with their one redeeming quality being that they're above average in cooking skills. They're never arrogant, but they try so hard to fake a level of competence they don't own which makes it funny. Like a toddler acting bossy without being a know it all because that would be annoying.

                                  You forgot bacon, Chris. Pineapple, ham, and BACON! Always with bacon.

                                  And mushroom...

                                  And onion...

                                  And bacon.

                                            For anybody who is anti Hawaiian pizza: try making a pizza with fresh pineapple, none of that canned nonsense, swap out the ham for strips of streaky bacon. The Bacon pineapple combo is amazing.

All of that absurd prep, to then bake the cast iron skillet in the oven for 11 minutes. A delicious homemade pizza can be baked in the oven for 11 minutes and will save yourself the insane trouble of all the stove top farting around in a cast iron skillet before you still bake the thing for 11 minutes. No time, what-so-ever, is saved in this mess.

Although I agree with Claire and pretty much every other chef in the world; pineapple on pizza is sacrilege and people who eat it should go live in the woods together away from civilised society.
