Wood Fired Pizza on the Kettle
« on: August 21, 2018, 07:19:19 PM »
I started by making a batch of homemade dough, but had a bag of the Trader Joeís dough to get things going, while the homemade dough was rising. The TJís dough is what you see cooking in the video.

I laid out ĺ of a chimney of unlit Weber Briquettes and started ĺ of a chimney on my other grill. I dumped the burning coals on the unlit and put my Kettle Pizza Clone together and let it heat up, while I put the first pizza together.

The TJís dough was still a bit cool, so it didnít stretch as well as I wanted, but good enough. Just a really basic pizza, but sometimes thatís ok by me! Sauce and cheese please! I dusted the peel with semolina flour to keep it from sticking. Youíll see me quickly moving the peel a couple times to make sure the dough isnít sticking to the peel. Uncooked pizza...stuck to peel...equals disaster...lol.

I hope you guys enjoy the video!

Absolutely perfect color top and bottom. That cheese looked awesome. Is it the pizza steel that helps get the top done so well?

Thanks!

Yes, the steel forces all of the hot air and flames much closer to the top of the pizza.

great job man. I love making pizza and we enjoy the outcome. Even when I think it was not up to my expectations, everyone thinks the pizza is great. Keep up the great pizza cooking and lets see some more of your WEBER pizza cooking videos.
