Tonight's pizza on the XL

We had a coupon for a free package of pizza dough. One is good for a 10-12" pizza so I figured why not combine 2 bags and make a 17" pizza.

We went pretty simple with pizza sauce, mozzarella, sausage, and mushrooms and popped it into the XL Egg:

Sliced and it was time for dinner:

It turned out quite well and I'll be doing it again some time. Thanks for looking.

    The dough instructions called for 425 "oven" temp.  I targeted 425 on the baking stone using a cheap grill thermometer (dome temp read 450-480 range). It cooked for about 15 minutes.

    Thanks for the compliments!

    Looks great.  I'm still working on my pizzas.  Do you cook the mushrooms first or just put them on raw?
  • 4Runner4Runner Posts: 2,948
    Also, do all ingredients on a pizza go on raw?   Did you preheat your stone?

    The mushrooms were fine raw.  I was more concerned about the sausage cooking through so I pulled off very small bits of sausage from the chub.  I like my crust more on the crispy side so it cooked a little longer some might cook but the sausage was cooked enough. 

    I do put the stone in while bringing the Egg up to temp so it is nicely preheated by the time the pizza went on.

    Nice job R2Egg2Q! Pizza looks great, you can't go wrong with sausage and shrooms!
