My First Pizza!

Just made my first pizza on the egg.. though I did pretty good for the first time.  Cooked in at around 600, good amount of char curst at the bottom, but by the second pizza, think the stone was much hotter and the bottom of the crust was black, (HOWEVER) surprisingly it didn't taste burnt at all and it was all eaten :)

Any tips on avoiding the crust from being burned before the toppings/cheese fully melted?

    If you have the option go raised indirect. It put the pizza stone higher in the dome and helps cooks the top of the pizza quicker. I'm sure others will chime in with more tips.

    I'm impressed you managed to roll out a nice round shaped pizza crust!

    I learned from an episode of bobby flay a long time ago that you always roll the dough from the middle out.  90% of the time it comes out round.
