New Pizza Set Up (and kids)

I tried a new pizza set up recently and it turned out pretty good. I attempted to get the stone and pizza as high up in the egg as I could.

I kept the temp at 500 or 525. I used the plate setter legs down, then small woo, then stone. It worked pretty good for the most part.:

Just going on with paper:


After two minutes - transferred directly to stone (not sure who posted that recently but it works great!


The set up:

Toughin' up the boys while the pizza cooked. Oldest will be 5 in February and the youngest son is 17 months younger. He puts up a pretty good fit all things considered:



She has my remote - but too cute to take it away!


Wouldn't you cry too if your mom dressed you in Husker stuff - especially after the Clones beat them in both Football AND Basketball!


Thanks for reading!
