Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Skillet Pizza – Turkey Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage

 

 

To start the morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 73 degrees with rain and thunderstorms on and off today. After Breakfast I went to Wendy’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Did a load of laundry and cleaned the house today. For Dinner tonight Cast Iron Skillet Pizza – Turkey Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage.

 

 

I had not made this in a while and a Pizza sounded good for tonight! Cast Iron Skillet Pizza, it uses my favorite piece of cookware, the Cast Iron Skillet, and it’s making one of my favorite foods, Pizza. I use Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust when making my own Pizza. For my toppings I’m using; Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Jennie – O Turkey Ground Sausage, Sliced Mushrooms, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, and Ragu Original Pizza Sauce. Using a medium size Skillet, I fried the Jennie – O Turkey Ground Breakfast Sausage ahead of time. When that was done I drained what little grease there was and put the Sausage in a small bowl, and set aside.

 

 

I preheated the oven to 425 degrees. I then took out a large Cast Iron Skillet, spraying it with Pam Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Got the tube of Pillsbury Pizza Crust from the fridge and removed it from the packaging. I then got a flour board out and added a little bit of flour and Cornmeal to it. I then took the Pizza Dough on it and formed a ball with it. Sprinkled on some Cornmeal and rolled it out and shaped it by hand I love that crunch texture Cornmeal gives the bottom of the Pizza Crust.

 

 

I added it to the Cast Iron Skillet and worked it out by hand, fully covering the bottom of the Skillet. I flipped the Dough Crust one time, that way I had a light coating of the Olive Oil on both sides. I then added my toppings; Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Jennie – O Turkey Ground Sausage, Sliced Mushrooms, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, and Ragu Original Pizza Sauce. Slid that baby into the oven and wait for it to get done! Baked it a total of about 15 minutes.

 

 

It came bubbling hot and just flat out delicious! All the toppings and Sauce work great together, this makes one delicious Pizza. As all Pizzas you decide what toppings you want to use. Really enjoyed this. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

To start the morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy and and a high of 31 degrees. I had to have my Mom out to Ross, Ohio at the CVS Drugstore. She got her 1st COVID Vaccination Shot. I’m really surprised that she got it, she’s been saying she was not getting one. Her friends talked her into it, they all got theirs this past Tuesday at the same place.

I Had a Poached Egg on a Thomas Light Multi Grain English Muffin and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 97 degrees and humid outside today. We have an excessive heat warning out for the next few days. Highs in and around 100 degrees with the heat index up around 110 degrees and more! Say hello to my air conditioner! I found out through Facebook that a friend of mine lives a few streets over from me. It was so good seeing him and his wife. I had not seen them since I quit a printing place in Springdale, Ohio back in 1987. So good catching up with them. They had lived there for 7 years and we did’t know the other was living so close by! Good to have a good friend living close by! For dinner tonight Cast Iron Skillet Pizza – Turkey Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage.

CAST IRON SKILLET PIZZA:

INGREDIENTS

2 1/2 cups bread flour
1/2 tsp dry active yeast
1 cup + 3 Tbsp warm water
2 tsp olive oil, plus more to coat pan
Pizza sauce
Cheese
Toppings
Fresh basil, minced (optional garnish)

DIRECTIONS

* Combine flour, yeast, salt, oil, and warm water in a large bowl. Using a wooden spoon, mix until no dry flour remains. Make sure the bowl is nice and large to accommodate for rising.
* Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let sit on a counter for 8-24 hours. Dough will rise quite a bit.
* Once fully rested, sprinkle top of dough with flour and turn out onto a well floured surface.
* Divide dough into 2 portions, shape each into a ball/disk… tucking dough under itself to form a tight ball.
* If desired, place one of the balls in a Ziploc bag for freezing.
* Pour some oil (a couple of tablespoons) in the bottom of the cast iron pan, place ball of dough in pan, turning to coat in the oil.
* Using your hand, push the dough around to spread the oil in the pan.
* Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let rest for 2 hours.
* Preheat oven to 550 degrees (or as high as your oven goes)
* Once dough has rested, it should have settled and puffed to fill the pan. Use your fingers to push the dough into all edges of the pan and remove large air bubbles.
* Lift up edges of the dough to eliminate any air pockets on the bottom of the dough.
* Top the dough with your pizza sauce, cheese and any desired toppings or seasonings. Drizzle with olive oil.
* Place skillet in oven and bake for 12-15 minutes. The top should be bubbly and golden brown.
* Use a spatula to lift the edge of the pizza and check to see if the bottom is nice and golden brown and crisp. If you’d like it crispier, place on a stove top burner over medium heat for a couple of minutes.
* Sprinkle pizza with grated Parmesan cheese and/or fresh basil. Slice into pieces and serve hot.

1/2 tsp dry active yeast
1 cup + 3 Tbsp warm water
2 tsp olive oil, plus more to coat pan
Pizza sauce
Cheese
Toppings
Fresh basil, minced (optional garnish)

 

DIRECTIONS

* Combine flour, yeast, salt, oil, and warm water in a large bowl. Using a wooden spoon, mix until no dry flour remains. Make sure the bowl is nice and large to accommodate for rising.
* Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let sit on a counter for 8-24 hours. Dough will rise quite a bit.
* Once fully rested, sprinkle top of dough with flour and turn out onto a well floured surface.
* Divide dough into 2 portions, shape each into a ball/disk… tucking dough under itself to form a tight ball.
* If desired, place one of the balls in a Ziploc bag for freezing.
* Pour some oil (a couple of tablespoons) in the bottom of the cast iron pan, place ball of dough in pan, turning to coat in the oil.
* Using your hand, push the dough around to spread the oil in the pan.
* Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let rest for 2 hours.
* Preheat oven to 550 degrees (or as high as your oven goes)
* Once dough has rested, it should have settled and puffed to fill the pan. Use your fingers to push the dough into all edges of the pan and remove large air bubbles.
* Lift up edges of the dough to eliminate any air pockets on the bottom of the dough.
* Top the dough with your pizza sauce, cheese and any desired toppings or seasonings. Drizzle with olive oil.
* Place skillet in oven and bake for 12-15 minutes. The top should be bubbly and golden brown.
* Use a spatula to lift the edge of the pizza and check to see if the bottom is nice and golden brown and crisp. If you’d like it crispier, place on a stove top burner over medium heat for a couple of minutes.
* Sprinkle pizza with grated Parmesan cheese and/or fresh basil. Slice into pieces and serve hot.

Gourmet Dad, Don’t Let The Title Fool You

I think I enjoy the cooking more than eating, there is nothing better than to watch the smile grow after someone’s first bite. Note from Steve: I am a flow of thought writer and apologize up front if I lose you. My family is used to it.
