new to pizza making - cooked on big green egg
« on: June 07, 2012, 03:26:53 PM »
New pizza maker here.  Still rough around the edges.  My first attempt I did not get a lot of pictures of, here is my second attempt.

Did not have a scale so I sort of eye-balled the recipie.  It was probably close to 6 cups flour 4 cups water, using KA bread flour.  Salt was from the salt-mill and I didn't measure just gave it several good twists.  Yeast was about 2/3 tsb ADY.  After mixing in the kitchen-aid I seperated into three balls and put it in the fridge for 48 hours.  I just bought a scale so my next dough should be a good starting point.

Overall flavor was good but I need to work on my pizzza stretching skills.

Cooked on a large big green egg grill.  Dome temp started out at 850 and I let it preheat for 45 minutes.  By the time the pizza went on it was at about 700 degrees dome temp.

Hottest so far is about 850 (there is a built in tel-tru thermometer in the dome).  Have not done anything crazy yet to get the temp hotter, my setup is just drop in the charcoal and go. I don't have an IR thermometer so I'm not sure how hot the stone gets.
