I finally had time to put this post together from the pizza cook I did this past Tuesday.

This is my pizza cooking set-up. It’s a modified rotisserie ring, with Kettle Pizza parts on the inside.,The ring is a clone of the Kettle Pizza design. It works very well and I’m stoked on the consistency that I get with this set-up.

I made enough dough for 2 good sized pizzas.

Off to a good start here.

BBQ Chicken Pizza…Blues Hog Original for the base, then added grated parmesan, mozzarella, red onion and some chicken breast tenderloin, I grilled the night before. Fresh cilantro was added after the pizza was done cooking.

Almost done here.

I didn’t time it, but I’d say about 8 minutes cook time at about 550*

I have been using oak chunks from a bourbon barrel for wood smoke.

Brats, Peppers and Onions…EVOO and crushed garlic was the base for this pizza. Fennel seeds are at the top of my list of things I don’t like, so I use Johnsonville Brats, instead of Italian sausage. I removed the casings and browned the meat in cast iron, at the same time I grilled the chicken the night before. Mini sweet peppers and onion are last to go on.

I ran out of good, natural light, so I stopped taking pics. I had enough fuel to do more pizzas, but the two were all we wanted this night. I enjoy making pizza, almost as much as I like eating it!

This is my go-to recipe for pizza dough. I've been using it for over 35-years now.

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1919/31443560968_8c15cfca6c_z.jpg

1-cup warm water (100*-110*)
1-packet yeast (I use the Fleischmann's “Pizza Crust” packets)
1/2-tsp sugar
1-tsp salt
1-tbsp veg or olive oil
2.5-3-cups bread flour

In a large mixing bowl, I add the yeast and sugar to the warm water and let it dissolve. Takes about 5 minutes. Then add the salt and oil. Mix that around to dissolve the salt. Add 2-cups of the flour and get an even consistency. Start adding the last cup of flour while kneading the dough. I stop adding flour, once the dough is just barely dry enough to pull away from my fingers without sticking. I cut the dough into equal sized pieces, depending on the size and thickness of crust I want. Put the dough balls into lightly oiled bowls, then place into the oven to rise (a bowl of hot water, in the oven, seems to help the dough rise quicker/better). Prepare pizzas right away to avoid the dough from drying out, or put lids on them.

Wow, those look great. I have the Pizza Kettle attachment but have had mixed results using it.

I recently purchased the Uuni 3 pizza oven and had much better results.

Those look AWESOME!!! We are big pizza makers too, but have really only used the oven in the house. I feel I may need to step my pizza game up as i've never seen these Pizza Kettles before.

One question...

How long/much do you let them rise?

Dangit! I clipped that part out by accident. I let the dough rise for one hour. That’s all it takes to more than double in size. Rapid rise yeast isn’t necessary.
