No-Oven Pizzas from Every Day

Rachel Ray has truly influenced a lot of frustrated chefs around the world, especially those stay-at-home mothers who would like to create different kinds of delicious dishes. For those who would like to create a pizza but do not have the equipment, here’s something you can do..

1 pound refrigerated or thawed frozen pizza dough
Flour, for dusting
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup tomato sauce
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)
Sliced red onions


  1. Quarter the dough and shape into balls. Place on a lightly floured surface, cover with a kitchen towel and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat a medium (8-inch) cast-iron skillet over medium for 10 minutes. (Make sure you have a lid.)
  3. Flatten 1 piece of dough, then stretch into an 8-inch round. Add 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil to the skillet, tilting to coat. Carefully lay the dough in the bottom of the pan and cook for 1½ minutes. using a metal spatula, flip the dough, then cover and cook until the bottom is brown, about 3 minutes. Turn the dough again and, working quickly, spread ¼ cup of the tomato sauce on top. Sprinkle with ½ cup of the cheese, top with some of the onions, then cover and cook until the cheese melts, about 1 minute longer.
  4. Transfer the pizza to a cutting board and top with some arugula. Wipe out the pan and repeat with the remaining ingredients.
