I cooked pizza again on the egg. It turned out a little better this time. I cut some stainless steel pipe at work today with this in mind. I took some advice that getting the pizza stone up into the dome will be better for browning the toppings. It did make a difference.

Now for the ingredients. Scamorza cheese, fresh basil, margarita peperoni, toasted pine nuts, black olives, and red onion.
Pizza #1 decorated by my girlfriend Kat
Pizza #2 decorated by me
I definitely think Kat's pizza turned out better. The crust was thinner, crispier, and it had a better ratio of toppings. I guess maybe I will ask her to decorate my next one!

    Looks good Dog ;) Glad to see that gasket holding up :lol: :woohoo:
  • Me too! I really hope it continues to. I think it is going to hold this time.

    The one thing that I would do different is this.I would turn that platesetter over,put the grid on top,then the spacers/stone.Here's why,I think that the upside down platesetter deflects the heat toward the gasket.It may not be true,but it makes sense to me :whistle:I know that most people do it your way,but I'm different :lol: Great lookin pie ;)
  • Thanks for the pointer. Pizza cook #3 I will definitely do that! I appreciate your advice.

    Hey,don't appreciate it yet,like I said,most people do it your way :lol: I just think that it may cause some of the gasket issues,but have no scientific proof :whistle: I do like the spacers that you made,very creative ;)
  • I have sooo much scrap stainless steel pipe laying around my shop I could make everyone on this forum a set, and still have some left over.

  • LOL it was ERW A312 316L. It really added to the flavor of the pie!!! :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:
  • Harleydog77,

    I'm sorry, you are right it is 300. I saw the tig line and it wasn't polished out. Should have looked at the printing.

  • :P That's ok. I'm sure after a few cooks you wont even be able to tell it's stainless without a magnet.
