Tried out a new recipe for dough this weekend that said it should be spread on a cold stone well covered in oil so we decided to give it a try when hosting a family over for lunch 


what we ended up making was BBQ pulled pizza lol as the crust became so attached to the stone there was no getting them off 


at least up to this point they looked good ... tell me I’m not alone with big fails lol

There are a lot of strange pizza recipes and techniques out there. Some work and others just leave you scratching your head, what were they thinking?

That is an interesting recipe to be sure. The toppings look good but the crust looks a bit underdone to me, which along with sticking is what I would have guessed going in. I used to use parchment, but have recently gone to using 550 to 650 stone temps with Ken Forkish 24/72 hr dough recipe.  (really pleased with the results, this recipe is designed to make a Neapolitan like  pizza at 550 - 650) The parchment sticks to the stone at that temp. I went to using a laminate peal and a dusting of flour. Trick is to minimize the time your dough is on the peal so it doesn't become stuck. A couple of quick shakes of the wrist every couple minuets it is on the peal really help keep it able to slide off. Pizza success is a marathon more than it is a sprint or middle distance. I have been messing with dough recipes, set ups, and cooking techniques for years. Finally, pretty happy with the Forkish dough.

You are not alone with the pizza sticking I use parchment paper but used a different brand to my normal one last time I made pizza ..... The paper stuck to all 3 pizza's not a happy bunny. After spending ages peeling the paper off the bases the pizza tasted great though.

      Have been busy with my other toy projects so the pellet Akorn has been cold for a while. Today kids want to eat pizza so I fired up the pellets akorn. It heats up to 500+ degrees in less than 10 min and the pizza was perfect. I fitted a WiFi PID controller and was going to tweak the algorithm but...too many projects! 
      Right now the temperature overshoots 50-80 degrees if set below 300 degrees, but gets better as it goes higher. 
      Anyway here is the pizza and the good looking grill haha.

      Decided to fire up the KJ for my first pizza cook last night. We had a bad stretch of storms come through and were under a tornado watch...but I was hungry so we made it happen
      Made my own crust using John's recipe. Toppings consisted of sausage, banana peppers, spinach and a honey drizzle once I took it off the grill. Decided to label this one "Sweet Heat."
      Had some trouble getting the KJ up to 900 but seemed to work fine at 750.
      Overall, it was really good. Can't wait for our next pizza night!

      On New Year’s Eve we had our friends over for dinner.  They were getting up early to go to the Rose Parade so the evening ended early but we still had a great time.

      I made 2 pizzas. The first was a Hawaiian Pizza with red onion, black olives, Canadian bacon and pineapple.




      The second was a Meat Lover’s Pizza with red onion, black olives, peperoni and Italian sausage.




      Both were delicious but I have to say the Meat Lovers was my favorite.

      Thanks for looking.

      I got a bonus at work (a lot more than I expected, woot!) and I ordered me a Baking Steel. It is about 1/4" thick plate steel, and it is supposed to be great for making pizza. Tonight I put it to the test.
      Grill: Kamado Joe Classic III
      Charcoal: Lazzari Fuel Lump Mesquite (I used to use this when I was a professional chef, cooks clean and HOT)
      Dough: Ken Forbish's Overnight Pizza, from Flour, Water, Salt and Yeast.
      Sauce: fresh Maranzano tomatoes, some EVOO, with salt, pepper, and some basil and oregano.
      Topping - Pizza 1: Whole Milk Mozz, Sausage and Pepperoni
      Topping  - Pizza 2: Buffalo Mozz, Proscuitto
      Cook temp 650F
      The first pizza burnt a bit on the bottom. The steel cooks hotter than a pizza stone, so I am chastised. As a pro, I used to cook in a pizza oven at 625, but it was a standard pizza oven with a refractory brick baking surface. Not ruined, but not perfect.
      The second pizza was perfect. After a minute or two on the grill, I added a pizza pan under it to prevent the heat of the steel burning the bottom.
      Both pizza's: The crust was chewy, with great open crumb. Cheese melty and delicious, and awesome.
      Dinner: Success.

      I’ve made this pizza at least 10 times as it is my favorite. This morning I made up some pizza dough.

      Around 3:00 I prepped my kamado for pizza and lite it up to preheat. Around 3:30 I brought out my dough and all my ingredients.

      I applied a thin layer of BBQ sauce and some red onion.

      Then some red bell pepper and cilantro.

      Then some chicken breast I’d mixed up with some BBQ sauce

      and finally, the cheese.

      Placed it on the pizza stone in the kamado for approximately 8 minutes at 400 degrees.

      Here’s the result.


      As always, it was delicious.

      Thanks for looking
