Simple Skillet Pizza
- 1 can (5.5 - 6 oz) tomato paste
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, more or less to taste
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, more or less to taste
- pepperoni, sliced, more or less to taste
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup water
- 7 tablespoons olive oil
In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Slowly add water and 1 tablespoon oil. Stir or use a hand mixer to blend until dough forms somewhat of a ball, a minute or two. On a floured work surface, knead dough until tight ball forms. Cover dough with greased plastic wrap or a damp cloth for 10 minutes.
Split dough into 2 equal parts. At your floured work surface roll out each piece of dough into a thin round that will fit into your pan.
Making the Pizza
Preheat roughly 3 tablespoons oil in your large nonstick skillet over medium heat until it shimmers or a drop of water flicked in it dances. In the meantime stir tomato paste and get your brush ready. Place one of the rounds into the skillet and cook, poking any bubbles that form with a fork, until the bottom is deep golden brown and crisp, between 3 and 4 minutes. Flip dough with a pair of tongs and brush on tomato paste. Next you have to sprinkle on all of your cheeses and lastly place your pepperoni slices. Reduce heat to low and cover until second side of the round is crisp and cheeses have melted, about 5 minutes. Transfer pizza to cutting board. Wipe out pan and repeat with remaining oil, dough, and toppings. Slice into wedges. Serve.
