Pizza! Pizza!

Pizzas on the Big Green Egg come out incredible! They have just a small hint of wood smoke and are nice and crispy. We made 2 pizzas tonight, one with Pepperoni, sausage and baby bella mushrooms, the other a "Taylor Special", Canadian Bacon, Pineapple chunks and cheese. The crust is a recipe I found on-line here, and is very easy to make. The recipe will make about 3 medium size pizzas. I like my pizza deep dish style so I made the pepperoni, sausage and mushroom pizza in a cast iron skillet. Taylor likes her pizza thin and crispy, so we rolled hers out thin and placed it directly on the pizza stone. The Egg was cranked up to about 650 degrees and we cooked each pizza about 10 minutes. I've had great luck on pizzas with the Egg and I've only burned one or two. Main thing is to watch them closely or the crust will burn.

Oh - I love hawaiian pizza and I NEVER get to eat any, because my husband refuses to order it! This looks great. We almost bought a big green egg a couple of years back, but we didn't because it seemed too expensive... we probably should have gone for it!

This pizza looks great! We just made pizza the other night but we did it in the oven. I don't know why I still haven't tried it on the grill!

Like Nicole, I love homemade pizza, but I still haven't tried it on the grill. These look wonderful.
