Use Your Cast Iron Pan and a Tortilla to Make World Class Bar-Style Pizza in Under 12 Minutes

Made this last night, Mission tortilla 10 pack, have two left after three people. I had the sauce and toppings ready as the pan heated up. Very good eats. This a dish for those nights when nobody wants to cook after a bad day. Very quick,, used a heavy spiced no cook sauce(used diced tomatoes, blitz them with immersion blender) very quick to cook. I have only one pan, had the third one done before the first one was gone. Fun and easy, thanks.

Gadgets: Omega VRT330 Juicer

I've looking at high speed juicers and not pleased with the noise. This seems a better choice. I don't get the concept of doing tomatoes for sauce. Is it just using the right size strainer to get the pulp without the skin and seeds? Never used one and have a big garden this year.
