    yes I did preheat the pizza stone. We were have some drinks with friends and weren't in a hurry, so we just heated it on the egg after it got up to temp. I have heated in  the oven before, but we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel as well, so the egg has been our only option for the next 3 weeks, which is fine because we cook on the egg about 5 days a week anyway.

    Pizza was a theme at my house as well. We did four pies:

    Two of my wife's favorite, ham, pineapple, and bell pepper (pictured in top left and bottom right), one pepperoni, ham, and bell pepper (pictured bottom left), and a experiment of buffalo chicken pizza, with a little marinara sauce topped with motz and cheddar cheese, breaded chicken bits (precooked), and of course buffalo sauce (pictured top right).

    here is my setup:

    Plate setter legs down, then grate, then stone right on grate.  Pre-heat stone for at leat twenty minutes and settle egg temp at 600.  Put pizza on and take a peek every couple of minutes to rotate a quarter turn, once you get a full 360 degree rotation it should be done (about 9 minutes).

    Here are some done:
    Hawaiian (ham, pineapple, bell pepper)

    Buffalo chicken:

    I cheat, and buy it at Publix bakery pre-made.  They sell a few different varieties and it is great when you decide on a whim to have pizza night!

    I agree Fliehigh, as a matter of fact when I was making the pizza my 3 year old asked if he could have a piece of ham. haha.

    @Jwgredeux- Those pizzas look really good especially the buffalo chicken one. I will have to give that one a try next time.

    It was very good.  I love spicy foods, and this pizza was great. Drizzled on a little ranch right before I ate and it is definitely one I will do again.

    Here in Canada ... we call it back bacon, because it's made from the back loin. Never understood why Americans call it Candian bacon?

  • I'm a new EGGhead and just cooked our first pizza last night.  It worked great!  On July 4, I'm going to attempt brisket.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  (I have been able to find a couple of forums here on cooking brisket on a BGE and they seem to be helpful.)  Wish me luck!
