Made in USA Cast Iron Cooking: Spinach Pizza Recipe

Cast iron pizza #NationalSpinachDay

October is National Pizza Month, so celebrate with a spinach pizza baked in an American made Lodge cast iron skillet….because everyone needs a reason to make pizza, right?!

MMM…..this spinach pizza is so good. Baking a pizza in a cast iron skillet gives the dough a slightly crunchy crust that I love.  Caesar dressing replaces traditional pizza sauce, adding extra flavor to this spinach pizza.

I use the Lodge Cast Iron Deep Skillet for the following recipe which makes a 10 inch pizza. You can use your favorite pizza dough for this recipe. I use this recipe and I split the dough in half. One half makes 2 skillet pizzas. I wrap the unused dough half tightly in plastic wrap and freeze it.

Cast Iron Cooking: Spinach Pizza Recipe


Pizza dough
2 tbs olive oil
Caesar dressing, about 4 tbs (more or less if desired)
2 cups mozzarella cheese
Black olives, sliced
3 cups of fresh baby leaf spinach
3 tbs fresh parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Lightly brush the olive oil onto the bottom and sides of the cast iron skillet.
  • Press the dough to the bottom of the skillet. Let it rise for about 15 minutes.
  • While the dough is rising, saute the spinach in a medium pan with a splash of olive oil (I use garlic flavored olive oil).
  • With a fork, poke the risen dough, getting rid of any bubbles.
  • Spread Caesar dressing on the dough.
  • Top dough with mozzarella cheese, spinach, and olives. Sprinkle on the fresh parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes.

The spinach pizza slides easily out of the Lodge cast iron skillet, right onto the cutting board for easy slicing! Enjoy!
