Does your family love homemade pizza?  How about a Deep Dish Cast Iron Skillet Pizza?  This skillet pizza is easy to make using frozen dinner rolls.DEEP DISH PIZZA SKILLET PIZZA WITH FROZEN DINNER ROLLS DEEP DISH PIZZA SKILLET PIZZA WITH FROZEN DINNER ROLLSMy teens love homemade pizza.  They had rather have this homemade deep dish pizza than any other pizza.   In the past, I made this skillet pizza with my homemade pizza dough.   Lately, I have made homemade pizza for our family pizza night using frozen dinner rolls.  It is delicious and easy to make!  

Homemade pizza is even easier to make using my cast iron skillet because I do not have to roll the dough out.  To make the pizza crust, I allow rolls to thaw out and rise in my cast iron skillet.  After the frozen dinner rolls rise, I flatten them using the bottom of a cup.  Rhodes frozen dinner rolls were used in this recipe.   

My kids, especially my two 19-year-old boys, love a meat lovers pizza, but you can add any of your favorite pizza toppings.

I know I promised you healthier recipes this month, but I still have teenage boys.  They truly need their carbs and protein.  Casey is extremely active with sports.  He will burn off a piece of pizza in no time.  Being a good mother, I serve his favorite food, Cast Iron Deep Dish Skillet Pizza.
