I’m usually a traditional American pizza kind of girl, you know pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms etc. Recently however, I’ve gotten a little more adventurous, like with the Pulled Pork Pizza and now this Chorizo Avocado Pizza. I’m really beginning to like all of this experimenting, especially when it turns out this good. The chorizo is spicy, the cheese melty, the crust crunchy yet chewy and the avocado creamy. It really is a perfect pizza.
I was first introduced to cast iron skillet pizza by a couple of friends a couple months ago. I had never tried it before but now that I have I am not sure that I will ever go back to simply baking it in a pan. The crust turns out absolutely perfect. Not too crunchy. Not too chewy. Seriously perfect. And the fact that the skillet is deep allows you to add just about any topping that you want.
There are a couple of things to keep in mind when making this pizza or any other pizza in a cast iron skillet. First you want to make sure your cast iron skillet is well seasoned. This will ensure that your pizza comes out of the pan easily. Second, you want to make sure that you’ve got all of your ingredients ready to go so you can quickly assemble the pizza before the dough begins to puff up. And finally, it can be a little tricky to get it out of the pan. Just loosen it and carefully remove it. I was a little nervous at first but it turned out beautifully.
