Prep 20 min
Cook Time 8 min
Total Time 28 min


Dough: (NOTE: this recipe makes TWO doughs for skillet pizza)

  • 13/4 - 21/4 cups white whole wheat flour (or all-purpose flour)
  • 1 envelope Fleischmann's Pizza Yeast
  • 11/2 teaspoons honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup of very warm water
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil (or olive oil)

Pizza Toppings:

  • 1/4 + 2 tablespoons pizza sauce
  • 2 tablespoons KC Masterpiece Fiery Habanero Honey Barbecue Sauce
  • 1 cup cooked, cubed chicken
  • 1/4 cup diced red pepper
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup diced pineapple
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
  • Cilantro, for garnish
  • KC Masterpiece Fiery Habanero Honey Barbecue Sauce, for garnish



  1. Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, honey, and salt in a large bowl. Add water and oil.
  2. Mix together until well blended; about 1 minute.
  3. Add 1/2 cup flour gradually until dough forms a ball. Add additional flour, to handle.
  4. Spoon dough out of bowl onto a floured surface. Dough will be slightly sticky.
  5. Knead on floured surface. Knead until dough is smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes.
  6. Divide dough in half. Reserve the other half for another time. Place one dough on a well-floured pizza peel and roll into the size of your skillet.


  1. Place an oven rack directly under your broiler and preheat your broiler to the highest setting. As well as, place your cast iron skillet on the stovetop, turning the heat on medium. You want to heat the skillet for 10 minutes. If the skillet starts to smoke, turn down the hit but we want the skillet screaming hot!
  2. While the skillet is preheating, add your toppings on your dough. Make sure your pizza is on a well floured pizza peel because we will be transferring to the hot skillet soon!
  3. Place a potholder or thick towel on the handle of the skillet (it will be very hot). Carefully slide the pizza into the skillet, dough side down.
  4. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the bottom is golden brown. Turn off the burner, and place the skillet in the preheated oven. Broil for 1 minute and rotate 180 degrees, broiling for only 1 more minute. Remove from oven and place on stovetop. Let cool slightly for about 5 minutes, then use a spatula to remove the pizza.
  5. Garnish with cilantro and an extra drizzle of BBQ sauce, if desired
