I got this 14" cast Iron pan last Christmas, (from my wife of course) and use it for everything. You can roast potatoes in one layer, so they get crisp, or fry a ton of scallopini, or PIZZZA. I think it works way better than the stone.

Crispy on the bottom, and cooks evenly.

I love a good cast iron pan. My mom had one that was probably 18 inches across and fed a family of 8 out of that pan for years (chicken fried moose steaks, yum). As kids we used to bake Crazy Cake (chocolate cake) in it that was fantastic. It was a sad day when after having it for over 40 years she dropped it and it broke. I sadly have not found one that I was the same quality but my search continues.

That pizza looks good!

I probably use my 12in cast iron skillet more than any other piece of cookware I own - you can make anything in it!

Lodge makes a great product if you need a replacement.

Skillet corn bread and coffee is a reason enough to get out of bed in the morning. I'm going to have to try the cast iron pizza. Maybe right now...

I deep fry my chicken wings in a dutch oven on top of my bayou burner. Best wings everf. Brine them 1st in a gallon or two of water, half cup of salt and half cup of sugar for half hour. Drain and rinse well before frying for 12 minutes at 375.
