Equipment:
Lodge 17-inch Cast Iron Pan
Lodge Dual-Handle 12-inch Pan

Pizza dough:
1 cup warm milk
cup lukewarm water
2 tsp dry yeast
2 large eggs room temperature
2 Tbsp honey
4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
5 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp kosher salt

Directions:
Directions:
1. In either a sauce pan or in the microwave, warm the milk. Just slightly warmer than lukewarm.
2. Pour the warmed milk into a large mixing bowl of a stand-mixer. Add the lukewarm water, yeast and honey, and stir with a spoon or whisk. Let sit for 3 or 4 minutes. Then add the eggs and olive oil and stir.
3. Add the flour and salt, mix using the beater attachment. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl occasionally with a rubber spatula or rubber table scraper. Beat on medium to high speed for 4 to 5 minutes.
4. Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead the dough gently for 5 minutes or so. Shape the dough into a round. Spray the mixer bowl with cooking spray or coat with a touch of olive oil. Place the dough back into the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm kitchen for 1 hour or until doubled. Punch down and let rise again, another hour.
5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and cut into 4 even pieces. Shape into rounds and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Gently roll out a one piece of dough using a rolling pin into a sphere slightly larger than the bottom of your skillet. Try and keep the edges of the dough slightly thicker than the center. Grease a 10 or 12-inch cast-iron skillet with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Place the rolled out dough into the cast-iron skillet. Use your fingers to gently gather the edges and form a crust edge. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour. Gently brush the edges of the crust with an egg wash before baking.
6. Spoon sauce in the center and spread out towards the crust edges with the back of a tablespoon. Sprinkle with cheese and any toppings you desire. Back in a preheated 500F oven for 18-20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly.
7. If saving the dough for another day, simply spray a large zip-style bag with cooking spray and place 1 or 2 rounds in each bag. Place them in the fridge for up to 3 days.
