Default Failed kettle pizza attempt that tasted good, anyway...

So, my plan was to grill a pizza for the super-incredible BBQ Brethren Pizza Throwdown. http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=154825

I try to keep my pizzas close to the ones I have eaten in Italy.

I started off right, making some fresh dough in the KitchenAid.



I forgot to take pictures of the finished dough.

I made a fresh sauce with San Marzano tomatoes, fresh oregano from the garden (is survives winter, here), some garlic, and fresh ground black pepper. I mixed it all up in the blender. BTW, I use Kirkland's jarred California garlic because it is better than what I typically find fresh in the grocery store).



My toppings were Sopressata, a dry sausage similar to pepperoni (which is an American sausage), that you would find in Italy, sliced mushrooms and bell pepper, and fresh mozzarella.



Here it is, all ready for the 22.5 redhead kettle.



I loaded a full chimney or hot coals into the kettle, put a grate on top, and a stone on top of that, close it up, and waited. And waited. And waited. WTF? I couldn't get above 300 degrees. The only explanation I have is that it was pretty windy outside.

Anyway, time for plan B, the kitchen oven.

It did turn out very tasty. I highly recommend San Marzano tomatoes and Sopressata to you pizza grillers. They are very authentic, and WOW, the flavor is excellent.

I ate a slice, before taking a final shot, just to be sure it was good enough to photograph for the brethren.

Did it fail because you couldn't cook it all on the kettle? It looks like a hit from here. IMO, it still counts if it got any grill time.

I like the idea of the hot soppressata. Will have to try that.

I fail to see any problem with that pizza. In fact, it looks pretty good!

Nice looking pizza. Have you ever had problems like this? Did you have extra fuel in the kettle? I think if you waited for just the charcoal in the chimney to get full lit you lost a lot of the heating power. I am just throwing out other thing that it might have been.

The hot Sopressata was a good call. I like it so much more than the sweet, especially in an application like this. Nice pie, too.

Look at it from my perspective. At least you still have your hair.

It was about 65 outside, with 10-20 mph variable winds. I really think the wind was my problem. I've done pizza on the kettle before, and it worked fine. I probably should have used the 18.5 OTG, too. Less space to heat.
