Cast Iron Skillet BBQ Pizza

This isn’t going to be one of those posts where I share a specific recipe. It’s one where I share a basic recipe idea… and then you can take it from there and get creative in your own kitchen.

To make this BBQ pizza I started with 3 pizza crust mixes. You’re probably familiar with the ones I’m talking about. The kind that come in a pouch where you add 1/2 cup of hot water per mix and then stir them all together.

(How many mixes you use depends on the number/size of the pizzas you’re making and how thick you want the crust. Through trial and error, I determined 3 was perfect number to make a small, medium, and large pizza in our cast iron skillets.)

I followed the direction on the package and let the dough rest while I got the rest of the ingredients ready. This included draining a can of mushroom stems and pieces, thinly slicing an onion, and thawing out some leftover crock-pot root beer pulled pork that we had in the freezer.

I coated each skillet with some leftover bacon grease and then rolled out the pizza dough. Then it was time to assemble our BBQ pizzas.

For the sauce, you can use your favorite BBQ sauce and then top it however you want. I used pork, onions, mushrooms, spinach, and cheddar jack cheese. They baked at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes and turned out great!

For toppings you can use whatever leftover BBQ meat you have on hand. BBQ chicken would be really good. I think peppers, jalapenos, and chopped tomatoes would also be good additions.

What would you put on your BBQ pizza?
