First grilled pizza on a stone

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Last weekend I purchased a pizza stone and peel from the world market. And boy what a difference it makes! Used to have to lay my dough on grill,cook one side then flip it and partially cook the other side before adding toppings. A lot of times I would get burnt pizza crust or would stick on the grill. This time using the stone was like night and day, lightly dust the stone with cornmeal and I was in business. I used two splits of hickory and started it with about a half chimney full of royal oak charcoal. And after sliding the pizza on the stone I had added one small chunk of black gum . I figured I would go with a strong smoke considering the pizza is only on for about 10/13 minutes. And the mushrooms and pine nuts were individually smokes on my offset previously before I started topping it. Here are some pics. You may notice on one pic the pizza is bubbling. Never got that effect before I got this stone.

What kind of mods would you have to do? I've been thinking about all these bricks I got stacked in my backyard, how easy it would be to build a brick oven for not only pizzas but for breads or baking anything for that matter. I found some pretty elaborate ovens that are way beyond my skill. Level but here is one I found on Pinterest , it's very basic and looks easy to build.

That's how I made the very first ever Mini-ZA!

I'd like to build a Cob pizza oven but the wife thinks I already have too many other outdoor cooking devices...

Thanks for the inspiration! Made up a batch of dough this afternoon and fired up the Vision Pro this evening. I got her up to about 500* and put the lava stone I normally use as a heat deflector on the upper rack. Pizzas came out with a slightly chewy, yet crispy crust. Did pepperoni and mushroom for myself and a veggie for my wife. Put some melted butter, garlic powder and a mix of parmesan and mozzarella on the last one for the kids. All came out great!

Here is a pic of the pepperoni and mushroom. No photographic proof of the others as they disappeared almost immediately!

My mouth is watering from reading your posts. lol.  Did you make your own crust or store bought?

Pizzas from the Grill is an every Sunday treat at my house.  I make napoletana dough from scratch and sauce made with Marzano tomatoes.  Some pictures:

I made my own dough. I used the recipe that Chef Jimmy J posted in another thread. The dough came out great. It is only 9:00 in the morning and now MY mouth is starting to water thinking about it. Maybe another batch for dinner tonight?
