Rhodes Dough Cast Iron Skillet Pizza


Note: This is not a sponsored post but does contain affiliate links. 






Good morning! I hope that you had a great weekend! It was beautiful, sunny and warm here. I took my pups out walking for the first time in a few weeks. I know, I know they should walk everyday but when you are 2 inches off the ground, refuse to wear a coat and its in the 20-30's I guess you get a pass.






As my husband was watching the football games this weekend I decided to make my favorite food, pizza! It is my favorite food group. In fact I like it so much I even have a Pizza Pinterest board to keep up on the best toppings, dough, etc. Check out my board if you like pizza as much as I do.






This week I made an easy, scrumptious skillet pizza using my favorite ready made frozen Rhodes dough. It doesn't get any easier than thawing your dough and gathering your favorite toppings. 




Rhodes Dough Skillet Pizza

Place your cast iron skillet in the oven. Preheat oven to 450. In the meantime prepare your pizza sauce and its toppings. Roll out the thawed loaf of Rhodes dough into a round circle just bigger than your pan. Once the skillet is preheated to 450 degrees, remove the skillet from oven carefully and place on a trivet. Pour 1- 2 teaspoon of olive oil into the pan and swirl to coat the bottom and the sides. Place the rolled dough into the pan, and press to the desired size of pizza. Then layer on  the sauce, and the toppings. Place skillet back into the oven and cook for  12-18 minutes. One the pizza is golden brown and the cheese is melted remove from oven. Slide from the skillet onto a cutting board and let cool. Cut into pieces and serve. 

For this pizza I used:

1 Loaf Rhodes dough
Marinara Sauce
Fresh Mozzarella cheese
tomato
Italian sausage 
Oregano




Fast, easy and delicious! Do you have a favorite pizza recipe? Many times I make my own dough but I do like the ease of a froze loaf sometimes and this weekend I was feeling lazy so frozen dough it was. I typically only like cheese and tomato but my husband likes meat on his pizza so I had to let him have a little sausage.

I hope that you have a great week!

Friday Favorites from Taste of France, House of Harper, The Vault Files, Simply Delicious and More



Good morning! I am happy it is Friday; cold, snowy,  weather makes me want to stay in and be a slug and I can only do that on the weekends.

Weekends call for comfort food, and this Rosemary Cream Chicken Pasta from Simply Delicious looks like it would be perfect. 




I love chocolate chip cookies! I discovered this recipe a few months ago and have since made it about 20 times for friends and family. If you enjoy a crunchy caramel cookie outside, with a soft chocolaty middle than than you will love these cookies. I think they are perfect right from the oven sprinkled with sea salt.

I want to make these Melt in Your Mouth Cookies from Munaty Cooking  for Valentines Day, I just have to figure how to make a reasonably shaped heart with my piping bag. The good news is that I can keep the misshapen ones for myself!

This post "Umoja" which is “unity” in Swahili, the national language of Kenya and of Tanzania from the blog Taste of France is fabulous! Get yourself a cup of tea, coffee,  cocoa or perhaps a cocktail and savor every word. I got goosebumps reading it and had tears in my eyes by the end.
