Now you can bring the taste of Naples home! All you need is a cast iron skillet and some of our amazing pizza sauce, to make your very own brick oven style pizza. Start with the classic Margherita, and then get creative!


Makes 1 pizza 1x 2x 4x


  1. Place a large (12 inch) cast iron skillet in the oven and preheat to 500°F.
  2. Roll and stretch the dough into a 14 inch circle, carefully remove the skillet from the oven and drizzle with 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Add the dough and carefully stretch to fill the pan.
  3. Working quickly, top the dough with the pizza sauce, leaving a 1 inch border around the edge. Sprinkle the torn mozzarella cheese all over the pizza and brush the crust with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil.
  4. Transfer to the bottom rack of your oven and bake until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted, about 12-14 minutes.
  5. Transfer the pizza to a cutting board, top with fresh basil, slice and serve.
  6. Enjoy!
