So, last night was the wifes choice for Pizza. We had a classic margherita pizza (sorry did not get a pic) and did a white pizza. The white pizza had a pesto base, grilled chicken strips, and a mix of grated smoked gouda and mozarella. It was quite good and gobbled up. It was not perfect and a trial run on a new stone. I also switched the set up-placed plate setter legs up and grate on, set some bricks on top of grate and raised the stone higher up. The crust was perfect but a little less crispy in the middle. Think I am going to change legs down and build brick on top of that. Any suggestion would help.

    Everything u did was fine, might be too much dough. To me less is more and you get better cooks, and less calories per slice.

    +1.  I have found that incremental increases in the dough thickness does not result in the nice crispy crust that our family enjoys.

    Could be you didn't allow enough time for all that mass to warm up, could be the dough was too thick, could be you didn't cook it long enough. Not enough details to give a better answer.

  • I used the dough mix from Publix. Dont think it was too thick but next time will trim some out. The BGE and stone were fired at 500ish. I think the bricks caused the inside of stone to be cooler than the outside. Actually, I think I may be being picky as the pies were actually really good. Just chasing perfection...and a process that I can repeat again and again...thanks for the input guys...
