Market Skillet Pizza

Green City Market

Seasonal
Entree
All seasons

First, preheat your oven to 550˚—or as hot as it goes. Get out one package of Tuscan Hen Foods pizza dough* (be sure to let it thaw for three hours if using frozen). Flour a surface and shape the dough, working it into a flattened round. Set a 9-12" cast-iron pan over a burner set to medium-high. Preheat the pan so it is hot but not smoking. Sprinkle the hot pan with cornmeal or flour*, and press the dough evenly into the pan - careful not to burn your hands! Brush the top of the dough with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Let it start cooking over the burner at medium heat until the dough starts to bubble. Add a generous amount of your favorite sauce* or pesto* from the market. Top with your favorite seasonal vegetables*. (We used River Valley Ranch mushrooms* and Froggy Meadow Farms caramelized onion* and garlic*). Sprinkle 2-3 cups grated Nordic Creamery mozzarella cheese*. Slide pizza into the oven and let it bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is bubbling, and crust is crisp and golden. Remove from oven and top with micro greens* and any other fresh toppings you like. We used Nichols Farm and Orchard pea shoots*. Drizzle with more olive oil and salt and pepper to taste and enjoy! 

*Available at Green City Market
