My first pizzas........

After a stern urging from the gang that met at Matthews last Thursday I went to the Mothership and bought a pizza stone- among other goodies :ohmy:
So Saturday night I went ahead and decided to give it a go. I did wuss out and bought the dough and premade sauce at Publix instead of going from scratch. The first pizza I placed on a solid pizza pan since I didn't have a peel to remove it:
Here it is precook:
Here it is on the BGE:
Here is the final product:
The first one came out pretty well except the bottom crust needed a little more cooking- not as crispy as I'd like.
The second pizza I made was placed on a Cuisinart pizza pan that has little 1/8 inch holes all over the bottom. This was much better as the crust was perfect and all of it was done but not overcooked.
Here it is:

The family loved the pizzas and I look forward to going crazy with the different items/ combos that can be made.
Thanks for the encouragement North Georgia Eggers!

    Good lookin' Za. Glad it worked for you! I also like the use of pizza pan on the stone!

    Now that looks like it was some good eatin'! Did you like the Publix sauce? I might give it a try since I will be limited on time. I did use their crust my first try and it was just fine.

    Ragu, I think. I did throw some fresh italian spices and garlic to kick it up a bit. I fired the egg to 500 and they both cooked in under 10 minutes.

    Looks great Teddy. I don't have a peel either, so I also use a pan at least for the first half of the cook, then once the crust has hardened slightly I slide it directly onto the stone. Mine is solid though with no holes. I like the one you have there better. I might try the parchment paper thing next time.
