Thin crust pizza getting better

Made two pizza's, they were definitely better this time around with good crunch and a thin crust. Used the pizza dough recipe from the new Big Green Egg Cookbook and double batched it with a 24 hour rest in the frig.

With extra dough...I thought I'd practice using good advice from AZRP rolling the dough between two pieces of parchment paper to get it very thin. Then I baked it,... not going to throw it out :whistle:

I sprinkled herb seasonings, salt, pepper, onion, garlic on two of the practice rounds and I got a crisp bread. Two others I only used sea salt. All were enjoyable to eat as is or buttered, still warm from the egg.

    TexasLiveOak save your money and just read the forum. Much better right here.
    I have the book and feel it is very much not a good cookbook for the egg. The exception would be his pizza dough recipe.

    I have more cookbooks than I need but I'm an egghead so I must get the BGE cookbook. There are very good photo's of food and the recipes are inspiring.
    Up next; Biscuits and Gravy, so I'm gonna try the BGE biscuit recipe.
    Yes, I recommend this cookbook, shows different setups using the egg and easy to read. It's on my coffee table right now with the book open to the biscuit page. :)
  • I thumbed through it and had the same reaction: it was pretty average. Perhaps good for a beginning egger who's not much of a cook...not so useful otherwise.

    Nice job Clay...the thin crust pizza has become a quest for many of us. :woohoo:

    I recommend the BGE cookbook also. Great recipes & great photos. A must have in my cookbook collection...

  • I bought the new cookbook when I bought the egg, save your money and use this forum. It has some useful info but the recipes are not all that great.
