Big Joe Pizza

Recommended Posts

Nice looking pies. I use either semolina or cornmeal on the bottom of the peel and on the pizza stone so that way it slides on and off very easily. It works like little ball bearings I love doing Pizza on the Big Joe. I would make them almost everyday if my family would eat them.

Thank you for the praise guys!  I made pizza again this past weekend and the results were good but not great because I started my fire too early.  I loaded up Big Joe at 6:15 p.m.and by the time I was putting on my last pie at 8:00 p.m. the temp dropped down to 500 from a high of 800. 

 

Next time I'll I think I'll add a little more lump and start putting pies on a little earlier.

Good looking pies. I'm guessing you had a fairly low hydration dough so launching straight off a peel with semolina was probably way doable. If you use parchment at that temp trim it really close to the raw pie and pull it after about 30 seconds.

Yes, low hydration but not my dough.  I have a wood fired place nearby that i know cooks at hi temp so I purchased from them.

Really happy with the results.  They were delicious.  I cooked at 750 degrees for about 2:30 min.  The only issue I had was with the parchment paper.  It disintegrated from the high heat.

Great looking pizzas!!!  Love the pic of table set with pizzas, everyone ready to dig in.

 

I use parchment at those temps with no probs.  Just lift the pizza up after about 30 - 40 secs and slide out the parchment paper.  Also allows you to rotate the pizza.
