Start this recipe for cast iron skillet pizza by making your dough. Keep in mind that the dough will need to rise for approximately 18 hours. Begin by combining the flour, yeast, and salt in a medium sized bowl.
Once well combined, stir in your cold water and then cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let rise at room temperature for about 12 to 18 hours or until the dough doubles in size.
Once your dough is double its size, sprinkle the top with a couple pinches of flour. Stir until the dough forms a ball. Add more flour by the pinch as needed and then set aside.
Continue by greasing a small, 10-inch cast iron skillet with oil. Set your prepared dough in the center of the pan and then work the dough evenly onto the bottom and slightly up the edges of your skillet. Cover the skillet and let rise for an additional hour.
Once your dough has risen for the final time, preheat your oven to 550 degrees or to the highest temperature. In the meantime, assemble your pizza.
Spread your sauce on top (as much as you would like), followed by the red bell pepper, red onions, pickled jalapenos, and black olives. Lay down your slices of mozzarella and season the pizza with your red chili pepper flakes and oregano.
Set your pizza in the oven to bake for about 12 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted. Serve hot with your choice of sides.
