Jen Haugen, RDN, LD, Down-to-Earth Dietitian
As a registered dietitian, mom and business owner – the most frequently asked question I get is “What’s for dinner?” Tonight it’s Detroit-Style Pizza.
Yes ordering out pizza may be easier, but you can’t control the ingredients or how much sodium, calories and fat are in the pizza. And you definitely can at home. And you definitely don’t get this reaction from your husband when he walks into the house, “Wow, it smells like a pizzeria in here.” I will take that as a compliment.
Here are my top tips to making Detroit-Style Pizza as easy as 1, 2, 3.
Make a quick pizza crust with plain, non-fat greek yogurt, self-rising flour and baking soda. It will be chewy and delicious!
Use a cast iron skillet because it goes from stovetop to oven.
While it’s baking for 12 minutes, put together a quick salad.
Watch my video below to see how it all comes together and be sure to subscribe to my blog for more ways to get “Dinner, Done!”. (New book coming soon).

The Cast Iron Skillet Set I Use
If you have never used cast iron before, I have some tips for you to getting started and how to maintain your cast iron as well. The reason I love my cast iron skillets from Pampered Chef is because they come pre-seasoned, and ready to cook with right out of the box. They are easy to hold with handles on both sides and they go from stove to oven to grill to campfire too.
