Easy Cast Iron Margherita Pizza

Crispy golden crust with melted cheeses and toppings. – who doesn’t love pizza? And our cast iron pizza recipe delivers the delicious and crispy crust you can imagine.

Cast iron remains to go-to pan for cooks in the know, and we can see why. When baking at a high temperature, cast iron gets super-hot and acts as a second oven with sides (unlike pizza stones), allowing the edges of the crust to get extra crispy.
