Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon olive oil , divided
  • 1 pound pizza dough
  • 3 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup ricotta part-skim or whole milk ok
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese divided
  • 3/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/4 cup mini pepperoni

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • Grease a 10-inch cast iron skillet with 1 teaspoon olive oil. 
  • In a small bowl, stir together remaining tablespoon olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder. Set aside.
  • Divide pizza dough into 30 pieces. Each piece will be small. 
  • Shape each piece into a ball, and lightly coat with olive oil mixture.
  • Place 18 dough balls around the outside edge of the prepared skillet.
  • Top with remaining 12 dough balls, staggering dough at the seams.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until dough is just beginning to lightly brown.
  • While dough is baking, stir ricotta and 2 tablespoons parmesan together in a small bowl.
  • Spread ricotta mixture in the opening in the middle of the skillet.
  • Top with pizza sauce and then pepperoni.
  • Sprinkle mozzarella and remaining 2 tablespoons parmesan over the top. It's ok if some of the cheese ends up on the garlic bread pieces.
  • Return to the oven, and continue baking for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until cheese has melted.
  • Let cool 10 minutes. Serve warm from the skillet.
