Deep dish crust recipe for our cast iron skillet pizzas
  • 2¼ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1¼ cups of warm water (110F)
  • ½ teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2-3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter (softened or melted)
  1. Mix together yeast, water, and brown sugar and let rest for 5 minutes.
  2. If you are using a mixer, add dry ingredients to mixer bowl (flour, garlic salt) and slowly pour in liquid mixture until dough forms using a regular mixing attachment. Once dough starts to form, switch to the dough hook attachment and continue mixing. Dough should be tacky but should not stick to your hands easily. If mixing by hand, add dry ingredients to bowl and slowly pour liquid into center. Working from the outside to center, mix.
  3. Form into ball and place in a medium/large bowl (mixer bowl is fine). Coat with a bit of oil and cover. Allow to rise for at least 1 hour.
  4. Punch down dough and remove from bowl. Split into two equally-sized dough balls and roll out to size.
  5. If you are using a cast iron skillet:
  6. Preheat oven to 500F.
  7. Oil skillet and spread out dough on the bottom and up the sides.
  8. Cook on stove top over medium-heat until the bottom of the dough browns (check every few minutes).
  9. After browned on the bottom, top with toppings and place in heated oven.
  10. Cook for at least 10 minutes, checking every few minutes until toppings appear golden brown and done.
