This is my take on a great recipe for skillet cornbread pizza from Martha White. Sure, it’s not really a pizza, but it has the flavors of one. It’s a really fun twist on the ‘usual’ pizza. You can add pretty much the same ingredients you’d find on any pizza. Since there’s no sauce on top, just serve the slices with a little (warmed) pizza sauce on the side for dipping.
You get a good little crunch off the cornbread if you let it get good and browned (not burned!) on the sides and bottom. Skillet cornbread pizza is a really tasty alternative to boring frozen pizza night!
Also try my pizza skillet bake.
