Meet the Cook: I created this recipe during a hot spell one summer. With the temperature in the 90's every day, I didn't want to turn on the oven. So I decided to make our favorite family pizza in a skillet instead! Anyone who likes pizza, has kids or just wants a quick and simple meal would likely enjoy skillet pizza. It's great to take along to get-togethers, too - you can prepare it at home, then just plug in the skillet when you arrive. —Darlene Brenden, Salem, Oregon


  • 1 package (6-1/2 ounces) pizza crust mix
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup pepperoni slices
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup sliced ripe olives
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Grease a 12-in. electric or stovetop skillet. Prepare pizza crust according to package directions.
  2. Line bottom and 1/2 in. up the side of the skillet with dough. Combine tomato sauce and Italian seasoning; spread over dough. Layer pepperoni, onion, green pepper and olives over sauce; sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Cover and cook over medium heat (set electric skillet to 375°) until crust is brown on bottom and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Slide pizza onto a cutting board. Serve immediately.
