First-time pizza

Decided to give pizza a shot.  Results were, overall, good and delicious, at any rate.

Used a homemade dough (all-purpose flour, yeast, sugar, salt, oil, 110*F water), and homemade sauce.  Setup was PS with legs up, then tri-level grid.  Heated the Egg to 400-500*F while rolling out the first crust (the perfect circle shape is because my wife - an incredibly talented cook - did the kneading and roll-out) and topping it, then threw the vents open.  (Side note: this was the first time that the Egg didn't light well simply by using the paraffin/sawdust lighters, so I was forced to break out something more fun, pictured below).  Introduced the first pizza (sausage) on the pizza stone, just to see what would happen if they went on simultaneously.  Had trouble with the crust sticking - not sure whether that was because the stone was not heated or because we didn't use enough cornmeal between crust and stone - but, with the exception of one slice, the pizza was hand-edible, and it was all delicious.
Because the crust stuck to the stone, we flipped the stone before introducing the second pizza (margherita).  Gotta say - that one turned out pretty much perfect for our pizza tastes.
All in all, a good first try, and something off which we can build.
