    Not sure, DOW...Just never thought pizza on an Egg would interest me. Now, I can't wait to give it a shot. I guess the Egg, and this forum, is just expanding my grilling horizons.

    I bought a peel the other day. Just can't decide what to put on the first pizza, good ol' peperoni or maybe try some chicken or pulled pork. I even bought the flour and yeast, but I am going to buy dough from my local pizza guy till I get experienced. they sound like fun. I had a tri tip pizza at eggfest that got me

    I ALMOST abandoned pizza on the egg.I burnt so many at first,I was depressed.Now I go ...platesetter legs up,grid and pizza stone on top of that,preheat for at least 45 mins in a CLEAN egg.Go easy on the toppings and I think 400-450 dome is hot enough.Good Luck! :)

    That setup is foolproff and you can tweak it to suit you from there.You get to eat all the mistakes and practice more too. :laugh: ;)

    You might consider having a practice pizza cook before your pizza night with the kids. It might help with the learning curve. Might help. :) Either way I wish you well. :)

    I did piza on the egg last weekend. It was awesome, but I did have some trouble getting the pizza from the pizza peel onto the pizza stone on the egg. Am looking for some tips on that.
  • I cooked my first pizza on the egg last Saturday.

    I used the placesetter legs down, with the pizza stone sitting on the feet the egg is supposed to sit on on top of the placesetter.

    I read the directions that came with the pizza stone, cooked it at 425 degrees for about 12 mins and it was awesome.

    BBQ chicken,banana peppers, onions, pinapple and BACON.

    I threw papa johns phone number away. It was awesome. :woohoo:
