deep dish help
« on: April 26, 2018, 06:36:34 AM »
Hey all,
Before I get blasted....I did a search, but most of the pics fell victim to photobucket crap.   and I still had some questions.
I finally got a BS Pizza oven.  Was planning on making a pie tonight.  Then I thought I'd try a deep dish style.  Then I realized my CI skillet won't fit in the BS oven with the handle.  I don't want to cut the handle off this one (mod for another pan sometime).  So, I want to make a Sausage deep dish pizza with the PizzaQue.
I've never done a deep dish style.... What temp should I shoot for on the PizzaQue?   How long should I expect to cook starting with a cold CI pan?
Then ingredients are layered, start with sausage.   Anyone tried a layer of American cheese? or should I stick with Mozz here?  then top with chunky sauce and shredded mozz.
Thanks in advance!

Personally I would use your regular oven even though it might not be as fun. Your results will be great

I thought about using the gasser,(which I consider an oven just outside) but I'd feel bad about not using all the pizza specific 'tools' I have!   lol

I've had good success with CI deep dish at around 400F. You need to watch out for the radiant heat emminating on the CI as the black surface absorbs a lot of heat over the long cook and your pizza will burn in that area. So you are going for high heat but as indirect as possible

I've done one.  Setup my coals on one side and cooked the pizza on the other side.  I rotated the pan a couple times during the cook.  Like gummi said, 400F sounds about right.  I have a Kettle Pizza but don't think I would use that if I did another deep dish.  It's not really going to give you any benefit in my opinion.

One more for high heat, indirect cook.  You could use your KP, but it would probably be easier without.

Seems like a 26er with a SNS would be great way to do a CI deep dish, I believe I have been motivated
Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

Thanks guys!
Life got in the way and I didn't get to make it last night. So I was going to try it again tonight....now it's raining!  I've decided to do my first deep dish pie in the gasser.  Take copious notes and experiment from there!
Have a great weekend all!!
