Tasty and fast way to make an authentic pizza at home. Adjust toppings to your liking! I like to add sliced bell pepper, pepperoni and chilli flakes to mine!

cast iron pizza

serves: 1 (1 cast iron pizza) | prep time: 2 hrs | cook time: 20 mins


for the dough:

  • 125 grams strong white flour
  • 0.25 tsp dried yeast
  • 0.5 tsp kosher salt

for the topping:

  • 100g of canned finely chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp of tomato puree
  • 150g low moisture mozzarella
  • pinch of rice flour


  1. To make the dough, mix the flour, yeast and salt together in a large bowl and stir in the olive oil and. Gradually add the water, mixing well to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn the dough out on to a floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Transfer to a clean bowl, cover with a teatowel and leave to rise for about 1½ hours, until doubled in size.
  3. Make the tomato sauce by mixing the canned tomatoes with the tomato puree.
  4. Apply olive oil to cast iron pan with a pinch of rice flour to prevent sticking.
  5. Stretch dough to the edges of the pan then top with a few dollops of tomato sauce. Spread over the dough to the edges.
  6. Add mozzarella and other toppings of choice.
  7. Place on hob on medium high heat to cook the bottom. When the bottom is starting to look burnt, transfer to an oven grill and cook the top for several minutes until the peaks of the cheese start to burn.
