  • legs up, stone on grate, or better yet raise it up off the grate with a few fire bricks or stone chunks or whatever - just get it higher in the dome.  550 degrees.  at least 30 minutes to get everything up to temp.

  • I have always used the stone, higher the better. I believe that the distance between the platesetter and the stone should be minimal. If you have some bricks, pieces of steel tube, electrical boxes or something like that, put them under the platesetter legs on the fire ring and use the little green feet or plumbing fittings on the platesetter to support the stone.

    I've done those right on the grid before, indirect, of course (because it was my oven).  That dough doesn't need much cooking.  Stone would be fine, but I wouldn't get it too hot.

    Give your stone at least 20 minutes to preheat.

    Isn't that dough partially pre-cooked?

    Steven - It's a "fresh" pre-built pizza.  I haven't cooked one in years, but I seem to recall they have to par cook the dough or it turns into a sloppy mess sitting in the box in the store.  I buy a slice now and then - it ain't bad.

  • Never been to a Sams. We have them and I have a membership but there isn't one close to my normal haunts.
