My Vegan Skillet Deep Dish Pizza is always a hit! 📸: Shaughn Cooper

The unique thing about this pizza is that it’s made upside down in a cast iron skillet and it’s super easy to make. Utilizing fresh plant-based ingredients to bring this palate pleaser to life!

Tip: When using frozen dough thaw and then sit dough in bowl with infused oil. This give so much more flavor to the crust!
Rolling out the dough is my favorite part!

Celebrate today with your favorite pizza! Whatever you like even if it’s pineapple and vegan ham 😆😑 lol

Random Fact: I detest pineapple on pizza. I’ll never forget the day my husband and I had a huge fight when he thought it was a good idea to add pineapple to our shared pizza. Needless to say, he never did that again 🙄😬
