Pizza semi success

Made my first pizza last night on the egg. Other than the crust getting a little burnt ( not bad enough that we couldn't eat it ) it was a success. Used a recipe for the crust that I got off here, had sausage, ground beef, pepperonis and cheese. I let my stone get too hot and had a little trouble sliding pizza on to the pizza stone from the cookie sheet we used to make it on. Used corn meal on the cookie sheet and the pizza stone, pizza came off the pizza stone just fine. Got temp up to 600 and let it sit there for awhile, when I put the pizza on the temp dropped to around 500, cooked the pizza with out the daisy wheel on top and temp made it back up to around 550 by the time I took it off. The only casualty was my wifes hot pad that I scorched when I took the pizza stone off and brought it to the table. Next time I'm gonna cook at a little lower temp and try to find some parchment paper. Thanks to everyone that answered my pizza questions the other day.

    Mayberry Smoker,
    I like parchment paper. Snag you some silicone oven mits. They got em cheap at the Faberware Outlet stores or Sam's. They will take 600 no problem.

    <p />ronbeaux,
    yes sir, that's the best way to move a hot pizza stone or plate setter is with silicone oven gloves like these here orca's.[p]i'm a little cornfused as to why he moved the stone off the egg. i just take the pizza off.

  • Rick's Tropical Delight,
    Nice Ride! Not sure where Farmersville, OH is. I'm just 15 minutes north of Lima. In my 46 years I can't ever remember it being this cold for this long. Time to move south?

  • Mayberry Smoker,[p]The next time will be better. If you left your pie on the hot stone after removing it, remember the crust would still cook for a while.[p]I like to use a peel and remove to a cooling rack for 3-5 min. This helps preserve the crispyness of the crust. Cut on a board and return to the rack.[p]BP
