This dish takes all of the classic flavors found on a kicked-up supreme pizza and turns it into a Supreme Pizza Pasta Skillet the entire family is bound to love. It can be prepared in advance then assembled in the cast iron skillet just before baking.
Supreme Pizza Pasta Skillet
I love skillet meals like this Supreme Pizza Pasta Skillet. Kids love pizza and pasta and this dish highlights them both. Cooked in cast iron this supreme pizza skillet is loaded with Italian sausage, beef, pepperoni, mushrooms, vegetables, ripe olives all smothered with pizza sauce and plenty of cheese. Baked until gooey and ring the dinner bell.
Helpful Tips for Making Pizza Pasta
- This skillet pasta is much like pizza in that it can be personalized to suit your taste.
- If your family isn't crazy about olives, just leave them out.
- If you aren't fond of bell peppers or mushrooms you can omit or substitute with an ingredient your family enjoys. Supreme is just how we like it, and to us, it's scrumptious just as it is.

I like to serve this pasta dish with steamed vegetables or a wedge salad and hot fresh from the oven garlic bread. It's skillet deliciousness that makes everyone happy at our dinner table.
