Try something different your next pizza night with this easy recipe for cast iron pizza. Baking a pizza in a cast iron skillet gives the dough a slightly crunchy crust that my family loves.  Caesar dressing replaces traditional pizza sauce, adding extra flavor to this spinach pizza.

Cast Iron Pizza

I use the Lodge Cast Iron Deep Skillet for the following recipe which makes a 10 inch deep dish pizza. Don't be afraid to try a different skillet size, or the Lodge Cast Iron Griddle for this recipe. Just adjust the cooking time as your crust could be thicker or thinner depending on the pan size.

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. The 10 inch pizzas are on the small side, so I make four pizzas with different toppings. Any unused dough can be wrapped in plastic and stored in the freezer until the next pizza night.

The kiddo love coming up with different topping combinations and this spinach pizza is one of their favorites. The spinach pizza slides easily out of the Lodge cast iron skillet, right onto the cutting board for easy slicing! Enjoy!

Cast Iron Spinach Pizza Recipe

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes


  • Pizza dough
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • Caesar dressing, about 4 tbs (more or less if desired)

    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    2. Lightly brush the olive oil onto the bottom and sides of the cast iron skillet.
    3. Press the dough to the bottom of the skillet. Let it rise for about 15 minutes.
    4. While the dough is rising, saute the spinach in a medium pan with a splash of olive oil (I use garlic flavored olive oil).
    5. With a fork, poke the risen dough, getting rid of any bubbles.

    7. Top dough with mozzarella cheese, spinach, and olives. Sprinkle on the fresh parmesan cheese.
