I call the stretch of Shanghai St , in Yau Ma Tei area , a cook's paradise .....
From 80 cents small moulds to KitchenAid mixer to Viking range , okay , I'm kidding about that one .
Cake pans in all shapes and sizes, different designs and shapes of cupcake liners , bamboo steamers , claypots .....
Cheap bars of butter , chocolates , cream cheese ....
And don't forget the cheap cast iron pan .....
I swear I'm not looking for it ! lol
But then , who can resist cast iron pan ?
Especially if it is cheap ?
Of course , I've been eyeing the Staub .....
Hah ! I wish !
I've been looking only for some spice container ( that I don't really need ) at that time ....
Nah , that was just an excuse , me thinks ^____^ ''
I bought a 10 1/2-inch cast iron pan that actually measures 8 1/2-inch at the bottom , 10-inch on top and 10 1/2-inch if you measure it from spout to spout but hey ! , it only cost me $ 52 !
So I've used it in making this pan pizza and you'll see the pale crust , don't worry about that , it's our oven which is not hot enough , I think , to have that beautiful brown and crispy bottom *sigh*
Pale crust aside , the pizza tastes ( of course , I'm the one who made it hee hee ) really good and so easy to make since it's a no-knead dough .
Want a slice ?
Check the pizza dough recipe @ Serious Eats
For the toppings , anything will do . I've used homemade meatballs ( that I've formed into mini ones ) , homemade sweet and spicy fresh cherry tomato sauce , some grated cheddar , cilantro and olive oil as my toppings .
That looks so... good. Yes you did get that crispy crust, I can see. I can make this for my family if not for myself.ReplyDelete
Bal , much more nicer if the crust is golden brown :DDelete

WOW to your meatball pizza and to your new cast iron pan! It's unbelievable how cheap you bought the pan for! Well done! Cast iron pan is a good investment as they keep forever... and it also builds the arm muscle everytime you use it ;PReplyDelete
Yum... looks very delicious! Never thought of adding meatball in the pizza. Will bookmark your recipe and love to try it one day.ReplyDelete
Hi Anne! Besides food and wine, I have a weakness for kitchenware and gadgets too!ReplyDelete
Nice looking pizza! I love your first pic!
Alvin , I even drool when I see some stainless steel ice cream containers hee hee ! I'm weird :DDelete
They look absolutely to die for!ReplyDelete
Your meatball pizza looks amazing! The hubby would love this for dinner...and so would I. I eye those Staub pots and pans, too...aren't they beautiful?ReplyDelete
Lizzy , and don't forget the gorgeous colors ! *sigh* :DDelete
it looks delicious! i have a cast iron pan, but i don't use it for much. i'm kind of scared of cleaning it! i know you aren't supposed to use water, you just scrape it out? or something? eh, it's good to brown butter in but i know some people do a lot of baking with them. i need to learn how to do that...:)ReplyDelete
Anna , I washed it with mild detergent then season it again :D I'm not so worried about it since it's pretty cheap lolDelete
Your pizza looks wonderful. What a great bargain at the Shanghai St. Too bad a cast iron pan is too heavy for me to bring back to the States. :P Otherwise, I would go crazy on these pans!ReplyDelete
Amy , Gah ! I go there almost weekly and can't resist buying bits and pieces :P :D The 6-inch cast iron is not that heavy and so cute as well :DDelete
That sounds really delicious! Yum!
wow, looks seriously good! I would like four please! One for each of us in my family, a pizza this good, it would be silly to share! Looks so delicious!ReplyDelete
Cast iron pan has been on my list for ages and ages! They are EXTREMELY expensive over here. I'm so jealous over yours!
Who could ever resist such a great comfort food! Yummy!ReplyDelete
I love making homemade pizza and use a pizza stone that comes with our oven. However, for those that like deep dish styles this is perfect. I've never tried this before but look forward to it now. I bet you could even make individual ones in muffin tins. Can't wait to try this. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Really love your homemade meatball pizza!!
Can i join you and Amelia for coffee..lol
Oh..talking about kitchen toys ..i love them too.

Every time when I do shopping , sure drop by kitchen section to see see, eventhough not buying but just like to admire it, hehehe.. What a good dealt , that is cheap and indeed it did a good job, look at your pizza,look so good !ReplyDelete
I remember stumbling into Shanghai st two years back when I visited HK... It is indeed a shopping paradise for a cooking woman like me... LOL!
