Description:This isn\'t exactly a recipe. It\'s more on how to use the BGE in order to cook a pizza, any pizza. Now I know BGE has a how to grill a pizza recipe in their book. However, I believe it\'s wrong and you\'ll end up burning your pizza. So here\'s how it\'s done...
Ingredients:Fresh Pizza Dough Sauce favorite toppings
Instructions:First, you\'ll need a plate setter and a pizza stone. Fire up the BGE and when it\'s about 400-500 put the plate setter on and get the temp to around 350-375. That\'s your PIZZA RANGE. Once it\'s at that temperature put your pizza stone on to warm up for about 20 minutes (there\'s science to this) Now, in the meantime, prepare your dough. Roll it, pull it, flip it, what ever your fancy, just form the dough, add your toppings and get ready to grill. Oh, and note, just before tossing the pizza on the grill loosely spread corn meal on the plate setter. Put the pizza on the pizza stone and close the lid. Note. fresh Pizza doughs are all different and take different amounts of time to cook. Therefore, as a rule of thumb no matter what fresh dough you\'re using, after about 20 minutes go back and check your pizza. At that time note if the bottom of the pizza is how you like it. That\'ll determine how much longer you\'ll have to wait.

We've had our BGE for a month- love it! Planned to do pizza but did wonder why such a high temp- glad we joined the forum and checked out your suggestions. We'll be doing pizza for dinner!

Dear Mr. Owl,

May I call you Wood? As a new BGE WINNER! you may want to experiment with frozen pizza. I have found cracker crust pizzas to be the easiest to cook and have taught me many lessons on grilling pizza.

Got the temp to 500 degrees and the pizza cooked in five minutes. I used a teflon coated pizza pan from Target. We made 14 pizzas that night. But, I just got a BGE pizza stone and I am going to try it. Will report back.

I've been doing lots of pizza on the Egg recently, but have found the results to be much tastier when cooked at higher temps. We make homemade dough and bake on the BGE pizza stone at 700F for 3 to 4 minutes and it tastes just like pizza from an authentic italian restaurant (the kind that have their own high temp. pizza ovens). The crust puffs up and is light and airy, soft on the inside, but with a nice crispyness on the outside. The only downside is now we just feel disappointed any time we order out for pizza... it's never as good as ours.
