Dani Wednesdays: Skillet Mini Pizzas

Hey guys and gals, I just wanted to pop in and apologize for not being around much. It's been a crazy couple of days. The hubby got a new job, I've been transitioning into his new schedule, and everything else. I'll be back tomorrow though, I promise! I'm going to pass you all to Dani now. Enjoy!

Skillet Mini Pizza

Hello,  out there. I do not know where you live, but here in California we are still having hot weather. The son wanted pizza last week. Of course,  it was one of our hottest days so turning on the oven was out of the question. This recipe uses a skillet with lid to trap the heat and melt the cheese. Fun way to make pizzas and have each member of the family create their own. 


  • Flatbread or thick tortillas - 1 for each person ( I used flatbread from Trader Joe's)
  • 2 tbsp Pasta sauce per pizza (I make my own, but store bought is fine)
  • 1/4 c mozzarella
  • Your favorite toppings (I used spinach, mushrooms and goat cheese)

1. Heat your skillet on medium High
2. Brown one side of your flatbread, then transfer to a plate with cooked side up
3. Reduce heat to Medium low
4. Make pizza by placing 2 tbsp on sauce on and spreading it all over. (You can use more or less depending on your liking.)
5. Add toppings, saving mozzarella for last. (The cheese serves as a indicator of the pizza being done. When the cheese has fully melted, the spinach is cooked) 
6. Place pizza back into pan (hopefully, you remembered to decorate the cooked side. Since is takes a while for the cheese to melt, it is best to keep the other side uncooked until now to keep it from burning)
7. Cover with lib and cook until cheese is fully melted.
8. Remove from heat and let sit for about 5 - 10 mins so cheese can set and your pizza will hold together better.
9. Enjoy!

The best part about this recipe is the crunchy "crust". Ours were nice and browned with a wonderful crispness. No need for a knife and folk, just use your hands! Until next time ...
