It is possible to cook a pizza in an electric frying pan or skillet without the need to place it in the oven. The secret to a puffy pizza instead of a flat, toast-like pizza is to include plenty of water in the dough recipe so that the pizza puffs up on the stove top.
Heating a skillet to around 500 degrees Fahrenheit provides enough heat to puff up the dough and avoid burning the bottom. To cook a pizza in a skillet, simply shape the dough and place it in the frying pan. Flip it over and top the pizza while the other side cooks. This gives the cheese plenty of time to melt while the sauce and toppings heat up.
