My first pizza!!!!! Pics

AltonAlton Posts: 445
My first pizza was a success thanks to everyone's post. My set up was plate setter legs up, CI grid, than the stone elevated on some small stainless condiment cups. Preheated the stone for 30 min at 600 all the way up to 700. Was able to stabilize the temp at 700 for both pizza's.Used Kristi's method of stretching the crust. Played it safe with the toppings. One was pepperoni and cheese and the other was a Pesto on whole wheat crust. I used store made dough. All in all pretty darn good. Ready to push the envelope next time. Thanks again for all of the awesome advice!!!

    By the look of your pizza stone you can definately tell this was your first pizza.  Those pizzas look good.  Hope they tasted good.

    @alton can you describe the process of heating up the stone? I wasn't sure if you put the stone in after your started the egg - and if so when did you pit it in - or at the same time you started it. Can you share a little more information on that? Thanks!
  • @alton great job on the pizza.  Wondering how the taste was on the pesto - did you make your own.  This is great inspiration!  I am cooking pizzas right now......

    @tdub4 I did my set up right after I lite the coals. I figured it would heat everything up as the Temp ramped up. @milesbrown4 sorry the pesto was store bought. Actually we started with a layer of Alfredo , then the pesto and then topped with Italian seasonings and mozzarella
