Some Pies in the Brick Kettle Pizza Oven
« on: June 11, 2018, 07:16:20 AM »
I finally got a chance to use my "Brick Red" kettle.  I found this one for $20 and it is my dedicated pizza kettle.  We used Tyler Florence's dough recipe, that is my go to from now on.


Getting the fire going.


Let the oak get fired up.


I think it's hot enough.


Getting close.


The pies.  I'll explain the triangle one below.


I'm getting better at this, lots of cornmeal on the peel is the secret.  The triangle shaped pizza was my fault.  You must prepare the pizza on the peel,   My daughter and I did this on the first two. On the last pizza we started topping the dough on the counter and realized our mistake after it was done.  It is not easy to get a raw loaded dough on the peel after the fact.  Lesson learned.  Pies were great.  Thanks for looking. 8)

IMHO that's too nice a kettle to use for a pizza oven. Having said that...the pizza's look delicious.

Parchment paper helps me with sliding in pizzas. The caution is, paper will but over 425ish, so watch it and pull it out after a minute or two, corn meal on the paper helps!

Does the corn meal burn at that temp?

Yes.   If you drop cornmeal on hot coals it will flare up immediately.  Itíll carbonize on the stone if left alone.

I'm going to have to keep that idea in mind for next time.  I had parchment paper on hand the night of the disaster because I use it when baking cookies.  Had I known, I'd have used some for the pizzas...

Nice work.  Pizza takes practice to master.  Change one variable at a time, find what works (and tastes good), and stick with it.  I think we can all relate to a pizza failure.

Very true.  The first time I made pizza with the Kettle Pizza attachment it didn't go this smoothly.  We had pizza but there were a couple of mishaps.  In all my years of grilling I hadn't been as intimidated by cooking until I used the Kettle Pizza.  I know it has something to do with trying to slide the pizza on to a limited size stone in an 800 degree kettle.

Great looking pies!  The more you cook the better they will get.

Yep.  Parchment paper is now used in all my pizza cooks.  Works like a champ.
