If you don't have an oven, or just would rather not have to turn yours on, you can actually make Stovetop Pizza instead! Grab your non-stick skillet and follow these steps.

Cuisine: American, Italian
Servings: 4 Pizzas

  1. Place a large pan over medium/low heat. I used non-stick but if you don't have one just oil a regular pan.

  2. On a floured surface roll out your pizza dough to fit your pan. My Best Ever Pizza Dough makes four 10" pizzas.

  3. Carefully lay the pizza dough in the pan and place on a lid. Cook for 3-4 minutes on this side until your crust bubbles and rises up. (don't brown too much here or by the end of cooking it will be too crispy) 

  4. When the dough is ready, remove the lid and flip over the crust and continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes.

  5. Once browned slightly, flip back over and top with pizza sauce and any of your desired toppings.

  6. Turn off the heat, place back on the lid and allow the cheese to melt, topping to heat up and for the crust to crisp in the residual heat. This takes roughly 5 minutes.

  7. Enjoy your Stovetop Pizza hot straight from the pan. You can also cook off pizza bases and freeze them to have on hand to make fast and easy pizzas another day.
