About once a week I'll use a quart of Pop's Brine on some boneless skinless breasts, cold smoke them for an hour, then finish them on one of my Eggs and chill. Perfect for salads, a sandwich, a snack or PIZZA!!!

We blind bake the crusts and usually make 3 or 4 at a time and freeze. I cook them raised direct over lump charcoal at 425° for 12 to 15 minutes.

Thanks for all the kind words...., and I just noticed one of the photos did make the carousel! We like thin crust pizza and blind baking the crusts and having them in the freezer really helps speed things along for assembly and they are much easier than using a pizza stone on the BGE. The 'brick oven' flavor from the charcoal is always nice, but having smoked chicken too is really good.

That is an original and delicious looking pizza!! Congrats on the well deserved ride. Love the spinach on it. I bet fresh basil would be awesome with that too. I have basil rolling out my ears lol. Can’t believe how much 3 plants crank out.

Yes, basil is awesome. I posted a margherita pizza I made last month, this one was cooked with the ceramic deflector plate in the Egg because it was a little more loaded up with cheese.

How do you blind bake your doughs without the center rising?
Every time I've tried to bake a pizza dough without any toppings the centers blew up like a two week old dead water buffalo.:emoji_fearful::emoji_joy::emoji_joy::emoji_joy:
