This Gluten-Free Deep Dish Pizza is perfect for pizza night!
This Deep Dish Pizza will change your life and it’s all made right in a cast-iron skillet. It can be baked in the oven or grilled right on the grill outdoors.
I’ll say I do love this Air Fryer Pizza; however, during the summer months, we love to do pizza nights with this Deep Dish Pizza.
For years now, Friday night has been pizza and movie night, it’s a frugal family night that the kids of all ages look forward to.
How do you make Deep Dish Pizza?
The trick to this is to use the Cast Iron Skillet to form your dough. That way you can get it nice and thick to make this a deep-dish pizza.
After I had my dough in place, I baked it in the oven for about 10 minutes, carefully remove it and then covered it with our toppings.
I wanted the bubbly, toasted cheese so I put it under the broiler on high for about 2-3 minutes to get it nice and crisp. The key to that crispy cheese is broiling it so that it gets browned, but also be sure to keep a close eye on it…because too brown turns into burnt quickly.
It was perfection! Outside of grilled pizza, this one is a new favorite around our home, plus so simple to make!
