The Key to a Perfect Crust

A HOT cast iron skillet.

Preheat your cast iron skillet in the oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit while you are prepping your sauce and topping. The skillet needs to be hot in order for your crust to not stick. You will see your starter begin to cook as soon as you pour it on the skillet.
