We love making this pizza in a cast iron skillet with the refrigerated pizza dough. Don't bother trying to shape the dough round. Just unroll the dough, mark the circle with the cast iron pan (see video in post) and trim off the excess corners of dough. You can also make this with your favorite pizza dough. You may need to adjust baking times with different doughs.
