Individual Pan Pizza

Sharing is caring!

Growing up, I LOVED Pizza Hut’s personal pan pizza. When I was in high school we had those cute little individual pizzas in the cardboard boxes, and as much as I loved those, I would get sick of them and have to take an individual pizza break.

If you were a kid of the ’90’s you would know what I’m talking about.


Mine did. And I LOVED them. I’m not talking about those rectangular pizzas, or the hectagon shaped “Fiestada”. Remember those?? I loved those, too.

I didn’t really get excited a whole lot as far as school food was concerned, but I loved the pizzas, chicken fingers (I had to dip your roll in the mashed potatoes and eat it with the chicken), and chili with those crazy big ass grease laden grilled cheeses.

These round pizzas made their debut when I was in high school, and we had a separate counter to buy them from – they weren’t in the regular lunch line.


I used my 6″ cast iron skillet, which was perfect. The olive oil in the bottom of it makes a nice crust; so don’t skimp on it. Of course, you can add whatever toppings you want. For some reason, there’s something about a plain cheese pizza when they’re small like that.

I know, I know, that’s soo not me.

Here’s your printable-
