Got in late tonight so fired up the BGE and pulled out the trusty Mama Mary's pizza crust from the fridge. Poured some alfredo sauce from the jar, Left over peeled crawdads out of the freezer, varigated basil out of the garden and topped with shredded parmesean cheese.


On the egg at 525 elevated.


Made a pepperoni pizza while 1st is cooking.


Finished products after 20 min each.



Quick and simple just like me! :laugh:

    Looks good. Was 20 mins too much, for the already cooked crawdads?

    They were fine. Had a heavy amount of sauce under them, may have protected

    We love egg pizza but are tired of Kroger crust- my homemade never works well. We have resorted to Whole Foods premade(half cooked). It is god but where to get a good ready made crust?

    Next time I'm at Sam's going to buy a case of frozen dough from the deli. They have a pretty good pizza crust and I don't have time or the desire to make my own. I think the lady told me they are @ $20 for 20 dough balls.

    I've generally used the "calzone/pizza dough" recipe on the submitted recipe part of the site. I add a bit of sugar and toss/roll it really thin. I've found it to be a great crust. It only takes about 15 minutes of work and an hour of waiting and makes enough for two thin crust pies. If you're looking for thick crusts, I've got nothing.

    I was thinking of doing that too. They also have the pizza crusts already made if I remember right. Let me know how you like them.

    Good pizza dough is pretty easy to make. Just don't be intimidated. I've gone thru a few recipes over the past month or so, and settled in on this one, since I can make it the day before I use it.

    3 cups Flour (I use high gluten flour)
    1/3-1/2 packet of yeast (If you use less yeast, you can let it rise in the fridge longer, up to 2 or 3 days)

    Mix together manually, with mixer, or food processor with dough blade & dough setting.

    Add 1.5 cups of cold water. Incorporate into a dough ball.

    Let rest for 20 minutes

    Add tsp of olive oil & incorporate

    Add tsp of salt & incorporate

    Flour your hands, as the dough should be sticky.

    Split into 2 or 3 dough balls, place in oiled bowls & cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 24 hours (give or take). Pull out of the fridge 1.5 - 2 hours before forming your pizza crust.

    It sounds like a lot, but it only takes about 45 minutes to get it to the fridge with a mixer or food processor. I make mine at lunch time on Thursdays, and my wife takes it out of the fridge when she gets home on Friday. When I get home, I fire up the egg, stretch the dough & make pizza's. I love Fridays!

    Oh, and those are 2 fantastic looking pizza's. I think I may get some frozen crawdads for tonites pie.

    One more thing! If you have a vacuum packer, you can also vacuum pack the dough balls for future use. Instead of putting them in the fridge to rise, vacuum pack immediately and put in the fridge. When you're ready to use, put it in the fridge to rise.
