After blowing the first attempt at pizza by not heating up the platesetter/pizza stone, tonight was a mission.  MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!  Made great pizza's for the fam.  Used some homemade Canadian Bacon and Iti Sausage along with store bought pepperoni. The crust was perfect...crispy on the bottom with a bit of chew.  Pic taken down the top of the egg.

    Planning on doing my first pizzas this week. At what temp did you cook? Place setter legs up or down. Etc.
  • I did pizza Saturday. It was my third BGE cook. The results were great.
    Publix crust
    Sorrento brands mozzarella
    Enrico's sauce
    Various toppings
    Plate setter legs up
    Cast iron grate thin side up
    Cheap 10 year old (read: well seasoned) 13" pizza stone
    500-600 degree dome
    450-530 degree stone
    3-5 minute bakes depending on temp

    I ran out of charcoal for the last pizza and was actually cooking it with the odd combination of 500 and 530 degree dome and stone respectively. (No, I didn't get that backwards.)

    The pizzas were great. My wood fired brick oven pizza loving wife said the were fantastic. I thought I over cooked the bottom of crust on all of them. But the chewy part of the crust poofed up great and was excellent.
    I finally took the plunge and bought my large Big Green Easter Egg from Roswell Hardware in Roswell, GA 03/31/2012

    Legs up on the platesetter...pizza stone sitting on the grate.  I have a small, so not much room.  I use a 12" stone.

    First pizza was started at 550deg, 2nd 525deg, 3rd started at 475deg and fell, and took a while (9-10minutes).  I had not completely filled my firebox before this cook, and I think I was running out of lump.

    All the crusts were perfect.  I used The Naked Whiz's dough with a few slight variations.
