First Pizza

Recommended Posts

I've had my Vision Classic for 2 weeks now, and am unabashedly in love.


I've done steaks, chicken, kabobs, planked salmon, direct grilled-fish, and now... pizza.   I did a lot of reading and lot of preparation and it turned out GREAT.    Bought the Vision lava stone diffuser, and a cheap peel/stone combo at BJs (think Costco/Sam's Club).  


Store-bought dough (Publix), marinara, 5-italian-cheese, red pepper, red onion, peperoncinis, prosciutto, mushroom and fresh basil.    500 degree dome temp with the lava and pizza stone in for 40 minutes... cooked for 5, turned, cooked for 5.


I gotta say, I'm never buying pizza from anywhere again!


Thanks to all in these forums for all the great information; I hope to one day be helpful to someone else as well!

Never made a pizza in my life until I got my Akorn kamado last year. Agree with you on taste, first pizzas ranked right up with the high end "coal fired" pizza restaurants.


Publix makes it easy. The fresh dough for under $3 or their buy one/get one free is unbeatable. Ran across it by chance. I was trying to make my first pizza and checking out with a couple of Boboli type premade crusts. Checkout lad told me to dump them and go to the Bakery section for the fresh dough. She was right.


Try a BBQ pulled pork pizza with meat from a recent pork butt cook. Best pizza I've ever tasted.

      This weekend I tested making Butter chicken recipe from Milk Street Book, ‘Fast and Slow’ by Christopher Kimball.  Only change I made was use roasted garlic.   I made the Naan Dough with Poolish method.    I used a portion of Naan dough to make a Butter Chicken pizza.   Here are the pictures of the final result,   Both where very delicious.

      Did this on the dojoe, between 550°-600°. I used the Forkish Saturday recipe, but popped it in the fridge for 26 hours after the 2 hour bulk ferment, before dividing and shaping. Fantastic crispy outside, chewy yet pillowy inside. Buffalo Mozz and salami. So good.

      Pizza tasted very good.   I used my Joe Jr. to Roast the Chicken Reshmi Kebabs and used my vision Classic B to bake the individual pizza.   For the cheese I used paneer cheese, extra old cheddar and pizza mozzarella.  The sauce for pizza was the serving sauce for Chicken Reshmi Kebabs.   This pizza will now be part of my pizza repertoire.

      hey guys,
      Ive had a few pizza sessions on my kj classic 2. Although the last time i warped the steel firebox ring so not sure that should count as successful! I thought it aould be good to ask a kj specific question.  
      My set up is deflectors on the grill in top position. Spacers on top of that with pizza stone then on top.
      So my question/s is when doing high heat cooks:
      1. How long do u let the kj heat sink for? I have just opened the vents and let it ride. When up to 650/700 put pizzas on.
      2. Where do people set their vents? How open is the bottom and top? As above i nlrmally just open them up and stick the pizza on at above the 650/700 mark.
      3. How long should this sort of temp last or is safe for the kj? If i had a pizza party how long could this keep up for eg.
      Any advice or thoughts is welcome?

      Best one to date. Pictures of just taken off the grill and then added some arugula and sprinkle of EVOO and pecorino romano.
