A hot cast-iron skillet mimics a pizza stone to create a crisp, evenly browned crust. We loaded our pizza with oozy red sauce and stretchy cheese. Fork and knife highly recommended.

  • Place spinach in a large microwave-safe bowl and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons water. Cover with a microwave-safe plate and microwave on 100% power (high) for 30 seconds. Continue cooking in 10 second intervals until just wilted. Remove and let stand for 2 minutes. Carefully remove plate. Transfer spinach to a sieve; press out excess liquid.

  • Brush a 12-inch cast-iron or other heavy oven-going skillet with olive oil; set aside. On a lightly floured surface roll dough to a 14-inch circle. Transfer to prepared skillet. Roll edges to form a rim. Brush dough lightly with olive oil. Spread tomato sauce mixture over dough and top with sausage and spinach. Top with mozzarella and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan.

  • Place skillet over medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Transfer to a 475°F oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese and crust are lightly browned. Let stand 5 minutes. Using a spatula, slide pizza out of skillet to a large cutting board and cut into wedges.
