Wood fired pizza

Kids decided on pizza for dinner. Time to fire up the egg.
Temp to 525, toasted the dough for 7 minutes the pulled off to add the toppings. Started off with a stuffed crust cheese for the kids. Rolled cheese sticks around the edges, let the kids layer the sauce and pile on the cheese. Slid it back on for 8 mins and let the cheese bubble.
Next up was the pepperoni. Didn't toast the dough on this one. Layered mozzarella and cheddar over the pepperoni slices. The kids had fun designing their pie. Slid on for 18 minutes.
The last was a Chicken Bacon Ranch. Toasted the dough for 7 minutes. Spread the Ranch dressing on the dough then layered the shredded chicken, bacon pieces and mozzarella. Added some onion and cheddar to my side, then slid back on the grill for 9 mins. The egg held the temp perfectly.
All I can say is WOW! By far the best pizza we've ever had.

    Love the stuffed crust!
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    I'll have to remember the trick with the cheese sticks next time for the girls.  They would love it.  Great looking pizzas.

  • Nice lookin' pies!  I'm also curious about how melted the cheese got inside the crust...

    Marvelous, simply marvelous. Love the stuffed crust idea, but I think the chicken bacon ranch would be the one I want to taste first.

    Oh yeah man. Stuffed crust is a regular in my house. Never done the cheese sticks. That would make it a lot easier. Thanks for the tip
