Revenge of the Pan Pizza

A few weeks ago, we ordered a delivery pizza.

And against our better judgement, we went with a chain spot and chose to try a few “pan pizzas.” We also had them delivered. It was cheap, so nothing could go wrong, right?!

The pizza looked like they had a rough ride on the way over with cheese spilling out everywhere and a sad excuse for a pan pizza. The crust was doughy and maybe unsafe to eat. Yet, we ate it and were sorely disappointed. I guess you get what you pay for, right?

I couldn’t decide if the pizzas were that bad or if we just have better taste now, but I think it was a mix of both.

So, I set out to find a way to make a killer pan pizza for myself…or I just stumbled across this Bon Appetit recipe (via their “foodcast” podcast).

And I’m sure glad I did.

Get ready for the best homemade personal pan-like pizza you’ve ever had! Bonus: It’s got a honey garlic crust that is to die for.

Even if you just have tomato sauce (we used canned san marzanos) and mozzarella cheese, you’ll be golden…and so will your pizza!

The crust is puffy and crispy, and it’s tons better than that chain pizza stuff.

When you have a pizza dough on hand (we like Trader Joe’s), it’s just a hop, skip and a jump to this cast iron Skillet Pan Pizza.
