We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Getting the &%$#&! pizza off the peel??

I tried doing a pizza for the first time this evening, bought a stone, a peel and thought I was all set. I bought a pre-made pizza dough, spread it out, tossed it, put my ingredients on and thought I had the makings of a damn good pizza....until I tried to slide it off the peel, it simply wouldn't slide. Not sure if I didn't use enough corn meal on the peel or what; is putting corn meal on the peel the only thing make it slide off easier? Any other tips on this for a budding pizza maker?

Overall it didn't come out too bad, ended up sorta folding the pizza over and throwing a TON of corn meal on the peel and working around the pizza. It finally came off, but was a real mess.

Any advice greatly appreciated!
