I did a search on "prizer ware" and it appears to be enameled cast iron. Am I right? If yes, it would be perfect.
You say it is "10 inches across" so I assuming its round (or oval?). Actually, the shape doesn't matter but how high is the side?
Is it at least 3" (a little higher would be better)?
Re no lid: you can try devising a domed "lid" for the casserole from aluminum foil. This is what the blogger did who posted the No-Knead Bread (dinner roll adaptation)
. Check out the link but here are the key points
use aluminum foil to make a tented lid that fits around the pan. The tenting part is important—if the foil doesn’t rise well above the pan, your rolls will stick to it as they rise. You may need to join two pieces of foil. Set the foil “lid” aside and put the pan in the oven so that it, too, preheats.
You would preheat the casserole but put the foil tent on top after you put the risen dough in it.
I would say to give it a try. If you do, please post back to this thread and tell us how it worked out.
