Smoky Pizza

I've tried one pizza on my large BGE using BGE charcoal.

It had an extremely smoky flavor to the pizza.  I baked it around 500 deg.

I would like to try pizza again but don't want the as smoky a flavor.  Any recommendations?

    More than likely the smoke was from not burning the lump long enough. You should let the Egg cruise along at your desired temp for 30-40 minutes before you put any "bread" type cooks on. It will take that long for the lump to burn "clean" of smoke smell.

    Also royal oak charcoal takes longer for it to burn clean!
