After a HORRIBLE day at work, I arrived home to find that Mr. Hyde had dinner all planned and ready and after relaxing with a glass of Shiraz, he proceeded to make pizzas for our dinner tonight. What a nice surprise and a welcome one after my day today![p]pizza-dough-balls.jpg[p]Here are the dough balls in the final stages of proofing, right before he rolled them out and threw them...[p]pizza-veggies.jpg[p]Here's Pizza #1 - A Veggie Pizza with green pepper, mushrooms, tomatoes, onion and roasted garlic.[p]pizza-roasted-garlic-and-cheese[p]And, here's Pizza #2 - My favorite, cheese and roasted garlic...[p]Happy Friday Everyone!

    QBabe,
    Could you explain your pizza set-up as I'm new to doing pizza on the BGE? It looks like you have a screen from Wal-Mart under the pizza-is there also a pizza stone under the screen? Any comments, tips, etc. would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Bunky Rub,[p]Actually, the screen is not a disposable one, but one we bought at a kitchen supply store. Cost about $6. Season the screen like you do cast iron and never wash it. Just knock off the crusties, etc. each time.[p]Larry's recipe for pizza is on my website under the "Pizza/Breads" section. It involves some time and work, but is WELL worth it! Don't let throwing the pizza scare you off, as you can do it without tossing it and he tells you how. But once you get comfortable with handling the dough, give the throwing part a try...[p]Tonia

    QBabe, When dough is proofing in fridge, do you leave it uncovered??

    QBabe, Thanks! I have my dough on the first rising right now. This will be my first pizza on the egg and I am so eggcited! Will be following all the instructions except I won't be able to let it proof over night. I don't have a platesetter but have some fire bricks and a pizza stone. I've put off trying this as it sounds like you can mess up pretty easy. Oh well, can't learn if you don't jump in! Thanks for your help.

    Tanya,
    I remember my first several attempts at pizza. I say attempts because they were not very good. If this first one does not come out the way you like it, keep trying.[p]I had a difficult time getting my temperatures correct. For me, a plate setter made a world of difference.[p]Please let us know how your pizza finally turns out - bad or good![p]Banker John

    Tanya,[p]You're right...I'm in the same learning mode with the brisket I'll be doing this weekend. I think for most cooks it takes doing it once or twice to get comfortable with it and be happy with being able to consistently get good results. But, one thing I've found with the egg is that even the less than perfect ones are still mighty good most of the time![p]Keep trying and have fun. Let us know how everything turned out...[p]Tonia
