pizza on WSM - tips?
I'm thinking of doing a pizza on the WSM. Any advice?

Top rack or bottom?
Charcoal or wood, or both?
Pan or straight onto the grate? (pan with holes?)

Lessons learned I can learn before learning them the hard way?

Also any good pizza dough recipes greatly appreciated. I have a great little pizza shop that sells me the raw dough for < $3, but I like making my own as well.

Thanks in advance!

Here's a good one for dough...

I use my kettle and try to get the stone up to around 550 for the cook.

I would only use the top grate, otherwise you will have to pull the bottom grate out to load and unload your pizza. I would also take out the water pan completely to get higher temps.

Are you planning on using a pizza stone?

How are you going to get your WSM hot enough to cook a pizza?

+1 on the dough recipe. That's the one I use, and it always comes out great. Good luck, and don't forget the pron! :wink:
