1st Pizza - I'm hooked.

Did my first pizza last night. Dough made using a WildTree mix.  Wife and I prefer a white sauce so I picked up a garlic/parmessan sauce.  Put some leftover chicken (from a previous spatchcock) some bacon and diced tomatoes.  Used the platesetter legs up, grate on top of that with a further homemade raised grate on top of that then the BGE pizza stone.  Put the stone up inside the dome nicely.  Heated it up to 550 and gave it a bit for the stone to come up to tent.  Only took about 6-7 minutes to bake.  It was so good.  Definitely have to get a peel in the near future.

    I can see why.  My wife just sat there all silent at first so I wasn't sure if she liked it but then she just went on and on about how good it was.  Loved the crust.
  • Great looking pie.  We haven't had pizza from anywhere since the egg.

    That's funny. That is actually our Pampered Chef stone (which I had been warned not to use) that we used for a makeshift peel.  We baked the pizza on the stone from BGE.  

    And it would be Supergirl as my wife was holding the stone.  LOL

    haha, here I was, wondering how your stone went from brand new looking to super black on one pie! :)



    I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

    I have cooked pies many different ways on my Egg and they are all good.  The deep dish pan pizzas are my all time favorite.

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!
