HOT TIP: Peaches belong on pizza! Especially this rich, earthy, sweet and savory version. Watch how it's made here.
A beautiful, rustic cast iron pizza is such a gorgeous and easy dish for entertaining. The flavors that come together as this pizza bakes, along with a crisp golden bottom, caramelized edges, and a chewy interior are next level delicious. And just look at these vibrant summer sunset colors! Beyond stunning.
If you're looking for the perfect pan to cook and serve this cast iron pizza in, I swear by my Great Jones King Sear. It's so gorgeous that you can just place it on a trivet or kitchen towel and serve right from the pan.
