Okay, now this has piqued my curiousity. Now I am not about to drop a couple of C notes for an experiment in Pizza without knowing what I am doing, so educate me on this whole grilling pizza thing...

It would appear that either he has no setup, or something was forgotten.... Been there, done that. :-)

This Pizza on a grill thing is still a mystery to me.... Any links any of y'all can provide that would give me a clue as to where to start would be great...

There are many ways to do it . U can buy pizza cooker for the 22Ē kettle . The pizza kettle and pizza q are a couple out there . Honestly you tube is a decent resource if you like to see different ways of cooking a pizza . I own the pizza q and I have made good and bad . The kettle Gets HOT so u have to keep an eye on it . Next time Iím gonna let the coals cool down some and see if I get better results. All trial and error my

Pizza on the grill is super easy.  Before I got the pizza attachments, I would pre cook the dough.  Stretch it out and throw on hot grill for 3 minutes, flip and cook 1 min.   Then put your sauce and toppings on.  Cook until ready.  I just kept the dials on high.
Once you get a few good pies, then experiment with making your own dough, sauce, toppings etc. then buy peels!
Without a pizza stone, I would stick with "flatbread" recipes over 'pizza' recipes.

A fellow can do a pretty good pizza on about any of the Weber kettles without a lot of special equipment.



The above was part of a pizza and calzone cook I did a few years ago.

You can find the balance of the cook here with all the details. http://olddavespo-farm.blogspot.com/2009/06/pizza-and-calzones-on-weber-kettle.html

I found a 22.5 grill with a slight damaged lid. I cut out the front of it and put angle brackets inside to level off the grate. I bought a high quality stone that holds the heat. I bring the grill and stone up to 600 + degrees and hit the stone with cornmeal garlic powder mix. put the pizza on and keep rotating until it is done. Think about 5 minutes top. Awesome stuff.

I cooked pizza for about 20 people a little while back...
Fired up 2 grills - a 22" & 26". The 22" had one pizza stone, the 26" had a pizza stone and a upside-down Lodge cast iron pan on it. Used store bought dough and prepped the ingredients myself. Worked like a charm. Lots of tips can be found on here - the best being to use a pizza peel with lots of corn meal to facilitate the sliding and to get the grill/stones as hot as possible.  With the lid offset and all vents 100% open it can cook a pizza quite quickly. Everyone was happy and impressed/surprised that it could be done in a Kettle.
