Does pizza only work in the oven? Wrong tank. With this pizza recipe, the oven stays cold, instead the pans are heated. A fantastically juicy, energy-saving treat, cooked in record time.

Pizza is probably the simplest and most delicious dish in the world. About 30 billion pizzas are eaten annually, most of them in the United States. There is not much left of the traditional Italian recipe, today there are countless dough and topping variants. In fine gourmet restaurants, the Italian specialty is served wafer-thin with a fine truffle cream, while internationally successful American fast food chains rely on a thick bottom, minced meat toppings and top-class cheese crust.

A wide variety of different pizzas can now also be found frozen. Especially when it’s going fast and the spontaneous hunger for pizza shows up, the frozen version is the obvious choice. It’s a shame, after all, nothing beats a good homemade pizza. However, most people are often put out of time and work on the long preparation and rising time of the dough.

Fast energy-saving pleasure

With this recipe for a homemade pizza from the pan, spontaneous pizza suction can be satisfied at home in no time – without rising time for the dough and even without an oven. The pan pizza is wonderfully airy, versatile and easy to prepare. Another plus: the oven stays off, so the pizza from the pan saves energy and resources.

The basis is a dough without yeast – there is no leavening time for the dough. Natural yogurt instead makes the pizza dough airy and juicy. During the preparation of the quick tomato sauce and the preparation of the toppings, the pizza dough can stretch a little. In just 15 minutes, it unfolds its taste potential and is then more than ready to go in the hot pan. A heavily cast or forged pan, which stores and transfers heat evenly, is best suited here.

After the pizza flatbread has been baked evenly on both sides, it can be topped with homemade tomato sauce, pizza cheese and your favorite ingredients. Finally, put the pan pizza on the lid. This is especially important because it is the only way heat can be distributed through the forehead. Since the heat in the pan pizza primarily comes from below, the cheese melts all over the dough. A highlight for anyone who does not get enough of melted cheese.

At lightning speed, the pan pizza is piping hot on the table and ready to be eaten. Good appetite.

  6. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in each of two small pans. Alternatively, you can prepare the pizzas one at a time or use a very large pan.
  7. Bake the dough in the pan for three to four minutes on each side.
  8. After baking, spread the dough directly in the pan with tomato sauce, top with the ingredients you want and spread the cheese on the pizza.
  9. Bake on low heat for about five minutes. Then cover with a lid.
