  • Olive oil

  • 4 baby bella mushrooms, sliced

  • 2 pinches of salt

  • 1 pre-made pizza dough

  • ½ cup pizza sauce

  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • ¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese

  • Dried oregano

  • Dried basil

  • ½ bell pepper, thinly sliced

  • 1 handful thinly sliced red onion

  • ½ cup canned sliced olives



  1. Heat a pan and coat the bottom with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Then, sauté mushrooms for 3-5 minutes, season them with salt, and stir occasionally until they brown. Once the mushrooms are tender, set them aside.

  2. Generously oil a 10-inch cast iron skillet with olive oil, then place your pizza dough in the center of the pan. Use your fingers to stretch the dough to the edges of the pan, then let the dough rest for 10 to 15 minutes.

  3. Spread pizza sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a bit of room at the edges for the crust. Then, sprinkle the dough with mozzarella and parmesan cheese, and top with the oregano, basil, mushrooms, bell pepper, red onion, and olives.

  4. Top the dough with more mozzarella and parmesan, then bake in the oven for 13 minutes at 475 degrees Fahrenheit until the cheese is browned.

  5. Use a spatula to transfer the cast iron pizza to a cutting board, then slice it into quarters and serve it up!
