That looks really good! How did the cook go and how did it taste? It looks like you could have probably cooked it at a little higher temp and/or a few minutes longer.

It was pretty good. We did fontina cheese on this one..we'll see how it compares to the other one with mozzerala.

That last pic ... ermagerd!
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

It was pretty good. Maybe a mental thing, but the mozzarella was better than the fontina.

The crushed san marzano sauce was good but I don't think it would make or break the pizza, although I'm sure it improved it. With using pre-made dough (Publix bakery) this pizza doesn't take a whole of effort considering how yummy it is and you get to grill.

How long did that take? I've seen fellas put the CI on top of baskets to get it closer to the dome. How did you do your setup? I'm ready to do this.

@Travis Each pie took about 30 min, I only cooked at about 400. I did have my pan on top of two empty charcoal baskets. I would check the pizza about 3 times and rotated it for even cooking.

You should totally try, very simple..especially if you get pre-made dough like I did.
