Several folks here have done similar and it’s been on my to do list for awhile. I’ve been so busy doing the week that my then lately is dishes that make great leftovers all week. This fit the bill. First I made some sheets of foil pressed in the pan to make some templates.

For two of these I sprayed heavily with olive oil and then pressed out circular 3 lbs sheets of Italian sausage.

Time to start the build. First 3 lbs sausage pressed into the greased 17” cast iron skillet.

Sauce, banana peppers, green olives, crumbled bacon and pepperoni. ( forgot to snap pic with pepperoni on this layer).

Three total layers , here is the full pan. A lot of the goodies on top are buried in the cheese Used shredded cheese for the top layer

Into the oven @ 350F for a little over 2 hours. I did need to carefully pour off a fair amount of grease when finished.

Looks awesome!

Question,
What’s the purpose of the foil?
I needed three uniform round 3 lbs sheets of sausage. Those I pressed on the pan and could then lift our. Bottom layer was pressed directly in the pan then the others I carefully flipped the foil to layer those on as I built the layers.

Wow Jeff!! That is insane...insanely amazing!! I've seen some pizzas before but nothing even close to this. What an unbelievable array of amassed debauchery. I could eat myself sick with that and not regret a second of it. Super job buddy....and I can see why it's "friends approved" :emoji_laughing:
