Talking Cast Iron Skillet Chicago Style Double Meat Pizza

Those that know me well around here know how fond I am of pizza. I'm also not a pizza snob - I love all kinds of pizza, from thin Neapolitan, NY Style, Deep Dish Sicilian, and of course, Chicago style.

Since the weather has cooled, I thought a different take on Chicago Deep Dish would be in order, and why not do it on the charcoal grill with extra helpings of two kinds of meat?

A little while before we began working with the dough, I fired up the Kingsford Oval up for both sides indirect:





Luckily, the Oval registered a perfect 400 degrees when I put the coals on - the ideal temp to cook a deep dish pizza!

Meanwhile, we worked on dough prep - here's the dough ready to shape:



And with toppings at the ready:




Now into the cast iron skillet after a bit of hand stretching:



Next, we added slices of thin Provolone cheese:



After adding a massive layer of shredded Mozz, we added some sauteed sweet Italian sausage:



Next, to double the meat effect, a layer of Italian Salami:



Next, the traditional tomato mixture, which consisted of San Marzano whole tomatoes, fresh garlic, and olive oil:



Just a bit of extra Mozzarella and oregano for good measure, followed by a good sprinkling of freshly grated Parmesan :





At this point, the pizza went on the grill:



About 27 minutes later, this is how it came out:



Sliced:




It was off the hook delish!

I hate you. I'm craving some of that. Pass a couple slices this way. I think I can even smell the garlic.
