Default Pizza Cooking on Weber Kettle

Going to try some pizzas on the performer Sat Night. I have the Red Sky pizza stone and was wondering how do you guys go about cooking a pizza on the kettle. I was hoping for some info regarding fire setup and how long to let stone heat up.

It doesn't take a whole lot of coal to cook a pizza. I bought myself a cheap infrared thermometer just for this purpose. I let my stone heat up to about 500 degrees before I put the pizza on. If you let it get a lot hotter than that you will likely burn your crust. Be sure to sprinkle corn meal on the stone before you set your pizza on it...

I can't tell you for certain how long to let it preheat, except to say that make sure you let it get hot through and through. If you have the time, longer is better. This is true with any cooking, unless the method is to start with a cold pan, like boiling potato's (potato's in cold water, bring up to heat).

I don't recommend sprinkling corn meal or anything else on your stone. It really doesn't do anything as far as the cooking process and is likey just going to burn. You may or may not need some on your peel, depending on how wet your dough is, and how long it takes you to assemble a pie.
