Eating pizza on Halloween night is a tradition for a lot of people including my family. My dad always says, "There is nothing like burning your mouth on a hot slice of pizza, then eating a bunch of chocolate so the roof of your mouth is raw for days!" Haha...Last night (while watching Sleepy Hallow and Stranger Things) we wanted to make some pizza, but we decided to try it in a cast iron skillet instead of a pan. The results were soooo amazing that I had to share!
The skillet made the crust buttery and crispy on the outside, and soft and fluffy on the inside. I think proofing it helped achieve this texture too. I topped this pizza with hot Italian sausage, caramelized onions, and half of it with mushrooms (because Nolan hates them...).
To caramelize the onions just slice up two whole onions. Toss them in a pan over medium heat. Add some sugar, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Then cook for around 15 minutes.
You could make a big batch, and add them to recipes throughout the week. They would be good over chicken, or in a quiche! Now I am getting ideas...
Yum! Enjoy this pizza for me...I have to go put on my Halloween costume. It's party time!
