Pizza using cast iron pan

Cooking a pizza by starting it off on a stinking hot cast iron crepe pan to get the base nice and crisp then finishing off in the oven.




Pizza cooked on frying pan

This is a method I saw Heston Blumenthal do.

I heated the oven/grill combo to the highest setting.

I put my cast iron skillet on the hob on high.

I prepared the pizza on baking paper.

Turn the pan upside down. Transfer the pizza over. Bung in the oven for 4-5 minutes.

Mexican pizza

I’m continuing my experiments and this time used a pizza crisper. It says not to put it on direct heat but it only cost 89p so I thought – Stuff It! 😀

I had some Fajita sauce so I thought i’d do a mexican pizza.

Pizza cooked on BBQ

This started out as an experiment to see how it would turn out.


I used a gas BBQ

I cranked up the heat on all the burners to get it as hot as it could go.
The Grill
I made a simple pizza base and placed it on a baking tray.

Pizza base


Toppins were tomato sauce, mozzerella and pepperoni.

Pizza with toppings


I put the baking tray over the middle section of the BBQ.
It was cooked with the lid down to keep the heat in.
I lifted the lid every minute or so to check on the progress.
You need to keep an eye on it so that the base doesn’t burn.
