Big Green Egg – Pizza Grilling 101

September 6, 2011 at 11:11 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

I love pizza.  I could eat it every day.  I knew I wanted to learn how to make pizza on the Big Green Egg, and I would say that I still have some learning to do… but that doesn’t mean we haven’t had some good efforts for dinner in the mean time.

First, let me teach you an important lesson.  Big Green Egg and Pampered Chef Stoneware DON’T MIX.

Before the grill was even close to heated up, the stoneware cracked.

Which was problematic, since I already had a (strangely misshapen) pizza ready to go on the grill.

Good thing it was on parchment paper because I was able to throw it down, on top of the broken stoneware, and it still turned out delicious.

I got the Egg to about 450 and cooked this pizza for 12 minutes.

So, after this stoneware disaster, Matt picked up the official Big Green Egg pizza stone for our next endeavor.

Following the instructions on the package, we heated up the stone on the grill.

Once the Egg got to 450,  I slid in the pizza.

15 minutes later, we had this:

Dinner is served!

  1. If you would have read your care instructions for your Pampered Chef stoneware, you would have known that they are not “grill” safe as they should not be on direct heat. They are only microwave, freezer, conventional and convection oven-safe.
