Stovetop Pizza


Homemade pizza is so tasty…especially when it’s really easy to make!

Today, in between studying, I watched Food Network® and saw an episode of “Secrets of a Restaurant Chef” where Anne Burrell made Grilled Pizzettas with Parmigiano, Prosciutoo and Arugula and with Taleggio and Puttanesca.

I adapted the original recipe which I included below!

Now, I’ve highlighted “That’s Amore” sung by Dean Martin before, but what other song mentions pizza?!?

Stovetop Pizza


  • ½ cup warm tap water
  • 1 ½ teaspoons dry yeast
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup white all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • parmesan cheese
  • asiago cheese, chunked into tiny pieces
  • mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • onions, sliced
  • red pepper, sliced
  • tomatoes, chopped
  • black olives, sliced
  • hot pepper flakes
  • yellow peppers, sliced
  • basil
  • pepperoni, sliced very thinly


  1. Combine warm water, yeast, and sugar. Stir and let sit for 10 minutes.
  2. Stir together white flour, wheat flour, and salt. Make a well in the middle. Pour yeast mixture and oil in center. Stir with a fork then knead. Let rise for an hour or until double.
  3. Divide into five parts. Roll into irregular shapes very thin.
  4. Heat a fry pan up to medium heat. Pan fry crusts on both sides, then set on cookie sheet sprayed lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
  5. Set out toppings everyone likes so that each person makes their own pizza. Start with a cheese.
  6. Then put other toppings spread around the crust. Top with a little cheese.
  7. Bake in oven preheated to 425 degrees for 3-7 minutes depending on how crusty you want the pizza. Just make sure the cheese is somewhat melted so it can hold the pizza together!o it can hold the pizza together!
