Nothing is better than pizza. Nothing. It’s the holy grail of all the dishes, and it solves most of life’s problems. It will always be there for you in those tough times of need. Plus, you can put vegetables on it, so that makes it healthy, right? Right. So, if we love pizza this much, why don’t we cook it at home more often? It takes no time at all, and it’s fun to make with your friends, kiddos or significant other. With a cast-iron skillet, store-bought dough and all the cheese you can imagine, you can easily make delicious pizza at home for the fraction of the price.
