Saturday night pizza!!!

Tried a new setup for pizza last night.  Put my platesetter in with the legs up and then arranged 3 firebricks around the perimeter on their sides.  Put the pizza stone on top to project it a bit higher into the dome.  Wound up about 2 inches above the gasket.  Got the egg going to about 650 and let her warm the stone for 45 minutes. The pizzas were done in about 10 minutes and came out really nicely cooked.  Also used a different dough for this cook.  Have been getting my dough from a local pizza joint.  Their dough is delicious but a little to large for my 14" stone.  This time I picked up frozen dough at a local supermarket.  They come two to a pack.  Dough was the perfect size for the stone and worked out VERY well.  Real easy to work with.   Here was the result:

  • High in the dome is the way to go on pizza. Looks good!

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Tou should try to make your own dough. It is super easy!

  • Looks great.  It's been too long since I've done a pizza on the egg and this makes my mouth water for one.
