Default Pizza on the egg..

First time I tried making pizza on the egg, the first pizza turned out great. Others after that the crust would burn before the cheese would melt.

I figure it was because I had the pizza stone directly on top of the plate setter. So, I decided to put down a couple insulation plates to raise the stone up off the setter about 1/4". I also read about wiping down the stone with a wet towel between pizza. Using both of these methodes produced a great looking crust and cheese. I however was not satisfied with the crust. My wife picked up some boxed Jiffy pizza dough and it turned out too hard. It didnt have a nice soft, fluffy (but yet crunchy) end crust.

Anyways, here's the pRon:

I was also going to replace the gasket before this cook, but didnt realize it needed 24 hours to set before using again, so I didnt. Well, after this cook, now I HAVE to replace it because the old one just fell off. :)

Looks great! I know what you mean about pizza - it can be daunting in the beginning. Here's a post I did a while back with an easy dough recipe you might want to try:

that is a nice first effort! Keep at it and definitely try making your own dough..I went through buying premade dough and while the pies were alright, they are nothing like when you make your own is soooo much better..good luck and have fun!
