Weird but great pizzas (with pics)

Third go at BGE pizzas. New configuration. I tried the platesetter legs up > Grill > Two fire bricks > Pizza stone arrangement. Naked Whiz recommends that one I think. And I have to say this is THE BEST and only way to do BGE pizzas. 

Previously I would put the stone directly on the grill - fine for 2 pizzas but by the 3rd the bottom gets charred. By the 4th the dough is totally black. 

I cooked 10 pizzas today over 2+ hours, cooked at 300-350c / 570-660f. Pizza stone stayed a great temperature - really good, consistent results. Cooked in about 6 or 8 mins each time. Impressed that the Egg kept to that temp for so long. I filled it up high, almost to the platesetter. Oh yeah, and I also did wings before too. 

I've never had a blue cheese pizza before but sautéed leek, blue cheese and walnut was a hands down winner. Made with a small amount of tomato sauce. 

Sautéed mushrooms with garlic and thyme was also great - made a big difference frying these before putting them on the pizza. Drizzled some truffle oil on too for an extra mushroomy flavour. 

Finally, beetroot, goats cheese and pesto (no tomato), with pickled red onion was also great but split the group! Beets went really sweet (they were the pickled kind).
