Skillet Pizza with Lox and Ricotta Cheese

It’s baaaaaaack.

Oh ew, that makes me think of Poltergeist. And the adorable little blonde girl and how she DIED on set. Wasn’t that the story? Remember? She sniffed some dust or something that they used to make the Poltergeist smoke and had an allergic demon-possessed reaction?

And remember the little boy ghost standing in the curtains in Three Men and a Baby?? Uuuugh. That ish is REAL, y’all and I’m still petrified.

AND, remember how Vivien Leigh from Gone With The Wind originally auditioned to be a flying monkey in the Wizard of Oz, but she still wanted to wear her giant green dress, but the producers didn’t think a monkey in a green dress and such striking eyebrows would say, “I’ll never be hungry again” because it would have been too awesome? I’m just kidding, I made all of that up.

What was I talking about?

Oh! It’s baaaaaaaaaaack.


The skillet pizza.

And it ain’t no legend, cheelah!

Remember when I originally showed you how to make it a few weeks ago? And then Jessica showed you her super pimp version last week? WELL, the whole thing has had me so dang pee-pee dance excited, I brought it over to the Tablespoons to show you again! And, I’m changing my blog to Bev Cooks Skillet Pizza, What do you think?

This one has smoked salmon on it. Aka lox. Or is that a mythical legend too? Is there a difference? I just love myths!

You know, there’s an old legend about a 30-something Kansas girl with a saggy top knot and a little black dog who claims to have connections to the underworld through her dying basil plant. I know her, too. Want me to find out anything for you?

    I tried making your skillet pizza and it was a massive fail! Instead of a pizza peel, I floured my cutting board - which a pizza peel it does not make. My artfully crafted pizza wouldn't budge, so I had to pick it up and swoosh it to the cast iron pan. The pan that at one time was smoking so I turned it down and then was too low in heat. It had an outer ring of crust and melted cheese and I ate around the doughy middle once it came out of the oven. Am I crazy for wanting to try it again - even if I still don't have a pizza peel?!

      Ohhhhh I'm so sorry! Hmmm, yeah, a pizza peel (well floured) is pretty key in this. It all happens so fast, I totally know how you feel! I do want you to try it again, though, because it's sooooooo worth it. I bet you could find a cheapy peel at Target?!

    A slice of this, a cold beer, and an episode of Girls is all I need right now!

    I have had your skillet pizza on the brain since Jess mentioned it last week (this week? who knows.) - I'm so excited. I'm going to make skillet pizzas everyday for Lent.

  1. Bagel n’ Lox Pizza | Heather Christo Cooks - February 21, 2013 [...] it’s own special pizza. You know, not just mooching off of the tuna tartar pizza. Then I saw this pizza, and those made me get even more obsessed. But my favorite way to enjoy lox is on a bagel- so I [...]
