10-Minute Extra Crispy Cast Iron Pizza

I saw this recipe on Serious Eats, and I had to try it. If you have all the ingredients, you can whip out a bunch of these pizzas pretty quickly. That’s a good thing, because I think you’ll find that no one can eat just one.

Ingredients

IMG_3007

1 10-inch flour tortilla

1/4 cup pizza sauce

1 oz grated Parmesan cheese

1 1/2 oz grated mozzarella cheese

1/8 teaspoon oregano

Toppings (I used pepperoni.)

Salt

Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

Special Equipment: Cast-iron pan

Instructions

Adjust oven rack 6 to 8 inches from the broiler element and turn on broiler. Heat pan over high heat and add a tablespoon of oil to the pan.

Heat the oil until it is shimmering.  Then, wipe pan out with a paper towel, leaving bottom of pan with a layer of oil. (You don’t want any pooling of oil). Turn heat down to medium. Add tortilla to pan, rough side down.

Add sauce, spreading it as close to the edge of the tortilla as possible. (If you get a little on the pan, that is okay.)

Add the mozzarella and half the Parmesan, spreading the cheese as close to the edge of the tortilla as possible.

Add any additional toppings you want.  (I added pepperoni here.) However, be forewarned. Don’t add a lot of toppings, as the tortilla won’t be able to support too many ingredients.

Crush the oregano in your fingers and sprinkle on top of the pizza. When the cheese starts to bubble, put pan in broiler.

Broil until cheese is bubbly and starts to brown slightly. When you take it out of the broiler, lift the edge of the pizza with a spatula to check the bottom of the tortilla. If you want a crispier crust, put the pan back on the burner, set at medium, for one or two minutes.
Add remaining Parmesan cheese to pizza.

Remove pizza from pan and serve.

What awaits you is a wonderfully delicious super-thin pizza. (Check out the thickness of the crust in relation to the thickness of the pepperoni!) Pure heaven.
