Pizza is a favorite at our house. We eat a LOT of it but mostly at restaurants or as delivery. I like homemade pizza but I never think of it early enough to make homemade pizza dough. Nope, I need something quick and easy that I can make in under an hour…instead of having almost an hour of JUST rising time.
So pizza was never one of my go to quick weeknight meals. I stuck with pasta skillets and other easy dishes. Then I wrote a post for BuzzFeed about easy weeknight dinners and found this great recipe for cheater pizza from Frugal Edmonton Mama. In fact, I even bought a new cast iron skillet JUST so I could give it a try.
I made a few adjustments so I thought I would share my version. I don’t keep self rising flour in my house so I had to make a few subs. If you DO keep it in your house, check out the recipe I linked to above. It worked out really great. We all really liked the pizza though be warned that it doesn’t have the same taste or “bite” as a normal pizza does. It’s more like a biscuit crust but still super tasty and very easy. I can’t wait to make a pan of breadsticks using this dough.
