Skillet Pizza - Trick to Keep Crust from Burning

Skillet Pizza - Trick to prevent crust from burning

If you are like some of us who have to improvise from time to time, like when we don't have a working oven, you may find yourself cooking some things on the stove top or electric skillet. However, when making skillet pizza, as I like to call it, you may find yourself facing the dilemma of how to keep the crust from burning while the rest of the pizza gets good and done. Here is a little trick I thought of at the last minute today when I decided to add some fresh onions and garlic... After your pizza has been in the skillet long enough for the bottom of the crust to turn a light, golden brown, remove the pizza for a moment, place a layer of thickly-sliced onions in the bottom of the skillet, and place the pizza back in the skillet on top of the onions. The onions will serve as an edible cooking rack and can be used as a topping when done. Now, cover the pizza with a lid to keep the heat in and continue cooking until toppings are melted and crust is done.

*Side Note: Of course, at times, you may find yourself too busy to deal with making a pizza entirely from scratch. If you MUST opt for a frozen pizza, Amy's is one that is GMO-Free! (Notice the little green logo on the front of the box?! This is the kind of thing you want to look for when shopping for any packaged GMO-Free foods in the grocery store.) The above pizza is Amy's Margherita Style pizza. I personally like a thinner crust, especially if making pizza on the stove top or in an electric skillet. But it's nice to know we have healthy options.
