Ingredients
  • [u]Pizza Dough
  • [/u]3/4 cup very warm milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 1/4 cups bread flour can use all purpose
  • 2 teaspoons dry active yeast
  • Toppings
  • 1/4 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/4 pound Italian sausage
  • 1/2 cup pepperoni slices
  • 1 cup jarred marinara sauce
  • 5 slices non smoked provolone cheese
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer combine all pizza dough ingredients and stir just until combined with the paddle attachment. Switch to the dough hook and "knead" for 5-7 minutes. If your dough seems to sticky add in a little more flour or if your dough is too hard and doesn't feel a little tacky when touched add in a little more milk (like 1/2-1 tablespoon at a time) while kneading. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly oil a 12" cast iron skillet with olive oil. Set aside.
  3. Brown ground beef and sausage in a skillet over medium heat until cooked through. About 5-10 minutes. (You could brown your meat in the cast iron skillet just be sure to clean out any meat bits or they may burn on the bottom of your crust.)
  4. Take dough out of mixer bowl and place on a lightly floured work surface. Roll out to approximately 12-13" circle. Place in cast iron skillet. Fold over dough around edges to form lip to hold in the toppings (See picture below recipe) With a fork pierce dough several times. This is prevent any air bubbles forming on the bottom. (See picture below recipe) Top dough with sauce. 3/4 of the ground beef and sausage. Lay slice provolone over meat then top with shredded mozzarella. Top with remaining meat.
  5. Place pan on stove top and cook on high for 3 minutes. This will not change the pizza, just gets the pan nice and preheated so the crust will be crispy. Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is lightly browned.
