Frying Pan Pizza

Hey everyone! I was craving a pizza last night which lead me to creating this recipe. Its probably the easiest pizza I have ever made and 100% the tastiest.

The dough recipe is super simple and quick. Just a handful of ingredients. The topping is all down to your preference. You can create anything! I made a chorizo, sun-dried tomato and red onion pizza. I wanted something quick and fast with the ingredients I had in my fridge.I also made a delicious garlic pizza bread. So have some fun and be creative!

Frying pan pizza gives you a beautiful crispy crust without using a pizza oven or stone. You roll out your dough, place it on a super hot pan and make up your pizza while the base is cooking. Then throw it in a super hot grill and your pizza is done in a few minutes. So easy!

When it came to my toppings I just used whatever I had in my kitchen. So use any type of ingredients you like. For my sauce base I just used a Ballymaloe Tomato pasta sauce. It was so tasty! I also used a bag of Dubliner mix grated cheese and some parmesan. Anything you use will be delicious!
