Burning pizzas

edited 8:52PM in EggHead Forum
Does anyone have a fool proof way too cook pizza,I pre-heat the egg to 500 and depending on how long it pre-heats I get mixed results...last night had the wife start the egg on my way home from golf{how good am I}guest's arrived,the egg had been going for like 1.5 hours{did I tell you I opened a bottle of wine when I got home}my first pizza almost incinerated,after lots of wet dish towls and even some ice I had the stone cooled down,and then was able to make some ok pizzas.there must be a trick so this does not

    Biggy "M",[p]I don't think it would be a good idea to put ice on a hot pizza stone. My understanding is that they ( The pizza Stone )are just like the Egg, they should cool down slowly. I think Naked Whiz just put out an article on Pizza on the Egg from start to finish. It will probably be on his Website also.[p] Dave

    I have burned the middle of the crust before. Then I realized I made a chimmney with the firebricks....funneled the heat guess where :>)[p]Now I place them side by side and the stone on top and have not burned one unless I get carried away in conversation. Pitfall of all grilling![p]Dennis

    when i had my large i had a plate setter and 2 pizza stones which i still have. i would put the setter in and get the temp up to 450 than put a pizza stone in. the first pizza took a while longer to get done but the bottom got a little brown and so did the cheese. the second pizza cooked faster,than i took that stone out and put another one in and started all over. rarley ever went over 450 degrees. i do my pizza's on the small now
    happy cooking
