Most markets these days do a decent ready-made pizza dough. We had a couple of families coming over on very short notice and I wanted to get the kids fed quickly, while also giving adults something to snack on once they’ve tucked into a glass of wine. Skillet pizza is a quick and easy, and makes a festive centerpiece on the kitchen counter. I picked up a few whole wheat dough balls from the market (white works just as well) and a couple of balls of mozzarella. I already had pesto on hand as well as some arugula. Preheat the oven to 500 or so. Meanwhile roll half a pizza dough ball out with a bit of cornmeal and press it into a generously oiled (olive) 12-inch cast iron skillet. Slather with pesto and half a mozzarella ball (sliced), a generous flurry of salt and grated parmesan cheese for a little extra sharpness (red pepper flakes optional here). Cook until crust and cheese are golden. Top with fresh arugula for adults and hold for kids. Delicious.
