How to make cast iron mozzarella pizza dip
For this recipe I used refrigerated pizza dough but you can choose to make some no knead pizza dough. In that case add at least 19 hours to this recipe. Start by unfold the pizza dough. It is a square and put it on a cutting board.
Melt the butter, add ready Italian seasoning or make some yourself with oregano, basel, salt and pepper and 1 tbsp of minced garlic. Stir the butter mix and brush the dough with the garlic butter. Save some butter mix to brush the pizza balls. Sprinkle about 2 table spoons of shredded hard cheese on the pizza dough. I like old cheese that is what I use but soft young grated cheese will work just fine as well.
Roll the pizza dough (long side) and cut pizza dough in about 10-12 pieces and shape into golf ball sized rolls. Put the rolls around the perimeter of a cast iron skillet. Brush the rolls with the butter mix.
Combine the tomatoes, onion, remaining garlic, salami, oregano, basil, parsley into a bowl and stir. Season with salt and pepper. Put the tomato mix in the middle of the cast iron skillet.
Sprinkle the mozzarella on top of the tomatoes followed by the grated hard cheese. Preheat oven to 400℉/200℃. Bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until the pizza rolls are nice and brown and cheese is bubbling. Serve immediately.
Cast iron Pizza dip options
Want a different type of dip the options are endless. Try:
- Shrimp – instead of salami you can add some shrimp to the tomato mix.
- Ham or Salami – Instead of using the salami in the tomato mix you can also use ham or salami on the pizza dough before you roll it into buns. Every bun then will have cheese and ham/salami.
- Tomato – Besides brushing the dough with the seasoned butter mix you can add some cherry tomatoes or tomato sauce so you will have a little pizza bun.
- Spinach – combine the tomato mix with spinach and add a tablespoon of cream to the spinach.
