Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you had a great Labor Day and are excited for the start of the NFL this week. If you’re not a sports fan, you can celebrate National Breakfast Month all September and National Cheese Pizza Day on September 5. We can’t wait to share some awesome fall recipes with you all! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

the pizza cake

The pizza cake is a pizza that looks like a cake rather than a cake that mimics a pizza… I began with a standard batch of dough cut it into 4 equal pieces, let rise. When doubled, finger flatten the first ball & lay it into the bottom of your cake pan (or in my case a Guardian Service aluminum dutch oven, I realized today I don’t actually own a cake pan). Next, top with smoked andouille sausage & mozzarella. Add the next layer of dough & top with spinach & locatelli. Add the next layer of dough & top with pepperoni & mozzarella. The final layer of dough went on & that was topped with caramelized onions & mozzarella. I covered this & popped the whole mess onto the egg @ 400 for about 45 minutes. Remove, cool, slice & serve with tomato sauce. It’s really hard to comprehend how good this tasted.


Oh, & got a new toy for my kettle, the hinged grid – great compliment to the charcoal baskets I picked up earlier this summer, great combination for indirect cooking. Broke in the new grid with the hot smoked sausage:
