    gman,
    I use the Spin's pizza dough recipe it is a good simple one to do. For sauce I'm a can of paste and can of sauce with a bunch of spices thrown in to taste. Lots of folks recommend corn meal under the crust on the stone and peel to ease the movement of the pizzas. I've found that the cornmeal will burn as your cooking (for multipizza cooks)and have been using kosher salt. It works just like the cornmeal, does not burn, and adds just a hint of saltiness to the crust. I always buy stick pepperoni and slice it myself. I think it adds to that homemadeness of the pizzas. Our family favorite and the favorite of guests is always a chicken pizza. I used to smoke some chicken earlier in the day (really grill with a couple of chips tossed in) then let the fire go low key to burn off the chips and then I fill it to the top of the firebox and add the pizza set up. It takes a while again afte the addition of the fresh lump sometimes to burn of the charcoal dust and stop smoking again. We carmalize some red onions on the stove top and use the red onions, mozzarella, and feta cheese with the chicken and a little pizza sauce.[p]With a second grill I can smoke some Pizzas and not have the setup times/smoke worries etc of my old method. Reason #1 for our small Egg purchase :>) It worked :>)
    I got off lucky this time, 7 years ago when I got the large I got the Egg and the wife got a red chair and ottoman that no one is allowed to sit in.

    Made pizza tonight

    All info is from this web site. Nothing original.
    1. Stabilized egg, plate setter and pizza stone at 500.
    2. Used prepared garlic/herb dough from Traders Joes (.99)
    3. Used Constandina's pizza sauce.
    4. Used packaged shredded Mozzarella
    5. Used a variety of toppings (onion, grn pepper etc.)
    6. Used a lot of corn meal in rolling out the dough.
    7. Put rolled out dough on parchment paper that was on the peel.
    8. Put the toppings on.
    9. Slide the pizza (and parchment paper) onto the stone sprinked liberally with corn meal.
    10. After about 3 min slide the parchment paper out.
    11. Cook pizza until done.
    Easy fast and great I made two small personal pies as opposed to one large one. easier to handle
    good egging
