Hi Eggbertsdad, I'm from back east Jersey to be more specific & used to N.Y. & Jersey pies. The boardwalk, street & restaurant style pies etc. In fact I chose the BGE over the Primo just for trying to get that same back east pizza style pizza. Now I make my own dough etc., but I bet what I do would work on any store made pie. I've tried high heat, low heat just about everything and find the below method works great for me w/pizza & calzonies for that matter. I only use cornmeal on the peel, not the stone and never had a pie stick to the stone or tiles. Good luck. 1: place setter legs UP simply put grate that came with it over it. 2: place pizza stone or simply put tiles on grate and preheat to about 500 degrees, don't have to be right on it could be a bit lower or higher. 3: check after about 7 or so minutes maybe turn if needed, you'll get used to the time depending on the temp. you use. 4: If you don't get to wild on overloading the pie it comes out perfect.
