This week I made a pizza in the Ooni Koda gas-fired Pizza Oven that I haven't made in a long while.  I think the last time I made it was using the Ooni 3 Pizza Oven. 

And that wasn't because I didn't like it - I just forgot to make it in the cast-iron skillet pan until now.

I've created a Pizza for Beginners YouTube playlist that gives some great tips to help your learning to cook pizza journey! Enjoy your Pizza Cooking!

Cooking pizza in a skillet pan is a fabulous idea if you are holding a pizza party for a number of reasons:

  • You can prepare it in advance
  • Once prepared, you can keep it to the side and cook when you are ready.
  • You can ask your guests to have a go at using the pizza oven.
  • Cooking this pizza doesn't require pizza turning skills - and they may also enjoy adding the fillings themselves - made to order!

Check out the video below to see how I made and cooked this pizza using the skillet pan in the Ooni Koda Gas-fired Pizza Oven!

To make a skillet pan pizza:

  1. Just grab some fresh pizza dough -  check out my how to make pizza dough video here: 5 STEPS TO MAKE PIZZA DOUGH
  2. Either stretch the dough or roll it to fit the base and sides of your pan.
  3. Place the skillet pan into your hot oven for a few minutes
  4. Remove the pan from the oven and place the dough into the pan and cover the inside.  Cut off any outstanding dough from the edge.
  5. Add your toppings - whatever you fancy!
  6. Place the skillet pan back into your hot pizza oven.
  7. Cook until the ingredients are bubbling and the cheese has been cooked at the top.

Big Tip!  Make sure you have a good slop of oil evenly spread on the insides of your pan.  This will ensure your dough gets a lovely golden colour when the oil heats up and cooks the dough against the cast-iron pan.  Otherwise, you may end up with a perfectly cooked but pale-looking pizza base - like mine!

Overall, I will definitely be making this again - and trying out different toppings.  I also fancy making a deep pan pizza in a big skillet.
