How to Make a Stove-Top Pizza

Forget about cooking a pizza in the oven, I have discovered a way of cooking it on the stove top! You don’t need a bowl, you mix it all in the pan.

I came across this recipe when I purchased my Chef’s Toolbox Saute Pan, the recipe is pretty much for the base and you can put whichever ingredients you like on the top. I’m pretty sure that if you have a flat based, non-stick pan with a lid that has a vent, you’ll have much success with this recipe.


1 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup plain flour with a good pinch of salt and sugar
1 sachet of dried yeast dissolved in 1 cup of lukewarm water

Topping suggestions: 

In my photograph, I pretty much used what I had in the fridge including tomato paste, diced bacon, diced ham, diced red onion, carrot, brocolli, capsicum and tasty cheese. You could also use pesto, mozzarella cheese, salami, mushrooms, shallots, olives, italian herbs and anything else you fancy!


  1. Dissolve the yeast in 1 cup of warm water and mix in with the flour, salt and sugar. You can do this all directly into the pan. Add enough extra warm water to make the dough mixture spreadable. 
  2. Spread the dough over the base of the pan and top with tomato paste. 
  3. Add layers of ingredients as you wish, starting with the meat first, then a cheese layer followed by whatever you wish. I usually put a little bit more cheese on the very top.

  4. Cover the pan with the lid, making sure the vents are open. Turn the stove onto medium heat and cook for 20-25 minutes. 
  5. Check the pizza after 15 minutes and listen for a sizzle. Loosen the pizza gently shaking the pan sideways. 
  6. Remove from the heat and using an egg flip, lift the pizza from pan onto a board or serving platter. 
  7. Serve immediately. 
How how easy was that? And with little mess.

      Wow that is very creative, anything that makes life easier is winner in my book! Thanks for linky Eva, have a happy day 🙂

      YUM! We’re normally lazy and buy the base.

      I have to get back into pizza making! I have been lazy thanks to the heat of Summer. I have a pizza oven and whip up my own dough in the breadmaker. This method is worth a try too!

      Yummo! I love pizza making and this looks great!! xx

      That looks awesome! I love the idea of it all being in the one pan, and the fact that our oven is so old it’s like a relic from the dark ages, this will definitely come in handy the next time I crave a pizza!

      You could give it a shot Danielle. The only thing I would recommend is having it inside something so it acts as an oven.

      Kylie, that is exactly one of the reasons I love doing it on the stove because our oven is an old gas thing that is not reliable, so the gas stove is much better!

      And it’s so great when making a pizza from scratch is this easy!

    12. April 14, 2014 / 2:09 am

      I used to buy the base too Toni, but seriously, this takes 5 minutes to prep.

    13. April 14, 2014 / 2:10 am

      Yep, that’s how I like to cook, nice and easy and quick!
