Pizza for a first post..... Why not?

Love the forum and love the egg. I'm relatively new to cooking on the egg but have become obsessed like most. Just a quick post of a pizza I recently did. I take my platesetter and place it feet down. I keep the feet out of the notches in the fire ring for some added height. Then I place ceramic feet used to elevate pots (from Home Depot) to elevate large green egg pizza stone off of platesetter for air gap. 500-600 dome. 10 minutes maybe. Don't remember exact cooking time. Just kept spinning it and cooked till it was done. Dough was from local pizza joint that has agreed to sell me raw dough balls (thanks Hideaway) Thanks for all the advice/inspiration given here. I look forward to making future posts and contributing to the egghead community.

  • Thank you all for the compliments on the cook. Pizza has become one of my favorite cooks on the egg. I have been cooking on kettles for a while before getting my egg as a gift from my Dad. Night and day difference. Don't think I could have done a pie like that on a kettle.........,,,

    Welcome to the forum and nice looking pie.  I recognize the local pizza joint and enjoy their pizzas here in Tulsa.  Ha!  SoCalSooner is a unique handle, but really hard to get my mind around.

    Any road will take you there if you don't know where you're going.

  • Hideaway is great. Their dough holds up to the heat of the egg well. Not much sugar maybe?.....  I'm from Oklahoma and graduated from OU. Big Sooners fan (should be an interesting year with coach Riley). Lived in San Diego for a while and met my wife there....  SoCalSooner

    @SoCalSooner where at in OK? I have a hideaway right down the road. How much did they charge you for the balls? I just bought a case from Sams club deli (24 for $18) but we love their pizza (large half Da Bomb half Big Country on thin please!)

  • Thank you all again for the nice compliments. To clarify not my first go with pizza. Done a couple pizza cooks. I have a great relationship with one of the managers from the Hideaway close to me here in OKC. He charges me $1 a ball of dough!!!!!!  Not sure all locations do that..........  I've learned so much from everyone here on the forum. Will continue to absorb all the info I can from all you guys. maso said:

  • Welcome SoCalSooner!  I'm a SoCalHog myself, but I'm trying to bring a little bit of AR to Malibu, CA.  Nice job with the pizza.  I make my own dough - just takes a little over an hour.  I also go feet up, grate, then stone.  There are so many ways to do it.  Great job, and thanks for the inspiration! The logo below is what I use when I make bbq sauce and give it to friends.  It's in my fridge at all times!
    Love cooking on my XL BGE for 2, 12, or 100!

    Great lookin pizza, SoCalSooner!!  With some help from my Mentor in Dunlap, IL, RRP, I attempted my first ever BGE pizza cook last night and I was very, very pleased with the both the ease of the cook and the results.  Regretably, no pics this time....altho I'll fix that on the next go round.  Just a minor alteration in the dough mix and I think the next rendition will improve.  Thanks for the help, RRP!!  Please pass along my fondest thoughts to LS
