Cast Iron Skillet Pizza for Breakfast
This is another recipe for those that collect Cast Iron Cookware and are not afraid to put it to use. These are little mini pizza”s done in #3 Cast Iron Skillets.
We normally make them for breakfast as a special treat. Don’t let that stop you from baking some and serving them at other meal times.
We make homemade dough the night before. After the first rise we cover appropriate sized balls of dough with olive oil. Place them in their own individual zip lock bags and store in the fridge over night….or for a couple days.
Take them out and let them warm up to room temperature (about an hour). Then work the dough into a well greased #3 Cast Iron Skillet.
Use well seasoned, 6 inch, greased, and pre-warmed cast iron skillets. A great way to use up leftovers. (Make a 6 inch pizza for each person)
Homemade Pizza or Bread Dough
Any Preferred cooked Breakfast toppings (Left over Home fries, Hash browns, crumbled bacon, diced ham, etc)
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 raw egg per mini pizza
Salt and Pepper to taste
Flatten dough into warm greased skillet. Brush olive oil on top of the flattened out dough. Add sauce and toppings. Set aside in a warm place to raise for 15-30 minutes. Use Mozzarella to form a nest. Slip the whole raw egg into the nest. Salt and Pepper to preference. (Makes a single 6 inch pizza for each person)
Preheat oven to 375°. Once raised bake 12-20 minutes or until the egg becomes opaque on top. If bottom appears to be browning before the top is done, turn on broiler to finish off the top. Just keep a close eye on them.
Variation. Mix BBQ sauce 50/50 with pizza sauce. Then use shredded or small chunks of cooked chicken, chopped fresh basil leaves, Mozzarella cheese, egg, salt & pepper. Options are endless.
