Just start with a batch of your favorite pizza dough. You can even use store-bought dough, if you want. Here’s my husband’s pizza dough recipe.

You’ll Also Need:

Pizza sauce
Your choice of toppings

One batch of dough is enough to make three eight-inch personal pan pizzas. If you need more pizzas to feed your family, just make a second batch of dough.

My husband set out to make the easiest pan pizza recipe possible, so he used eight-inch round cake pans to make his pizzas. You could also make them in eight-inch cast iron pans, or any other oven-safe pan that’s close to that size.
