Well on the weekends I usually end up making at least one frozen pizza. The problem lately is that the temperature outside is 105 F and the AC struggles to keep up. So I was debating what to do for lunch today ... I had tried cooking a frozen pizza on the gas grill before for giggles but the flame was too close to the crust and ended up a little too crispy.

So today I was able to Jerry rig the pizza pan on the "warming" rack in the grill and set the flames on low. With a couple of trips out to add some extra toppings and cheese - I have to admit it was one of the best tasting pizzas I've eaten in a long time! Not too bad considering it came from a cardboard box ;)

Tried doing that awhile back no luck with it, but sounds like you got it figured out. Have to give it another try the way you did it. Moving the pizza up only makes sence. Thanks

That's a good way to keep the heat out of the house and still get your pizza. You can bake just about anything in a BBQ if you can keep it above the flame enough to get a nice even heat.

Hmmmm, BBQ'd pizza? :confuse: Sounds interesting, I may have to try it sometime, but my pit isn't gas, so I guess mine would be smoked pizza! :thumbs:

I've had grilled pizza before and it is very good, smoked pizza sounds great too.

Smoked pizza is very good. Mesquite chips give it an awesome taste.

Wood roasted (?) pizza is the best I have ever had, personally.

Sounds great, I will have to try that. Back a few years ago, we were still living in the mountains, we had a power failure from a tornado that lasted 5 days over the 4th of July. I cooked everything from biscuits and sausage gravy to grilled shrimp. We had some friends up from Atlanta, and she didn't do so well, she had a real problem not having a curling iron.

Funny how women get attached to those kinds of thing, Brian!

We have been cooking out on the grill lately too. Last time the wife cooked in the kitchen it took 4 hours for it to cool down in the house. Our grill is a charcoal model so I don't know how well a pizza would work on it.

Should not present a problem at all!! The best pizza resturants around here bake their pizza in a wood fired oven.

I have never gotten to care for a gas grill. Use nothing but charcoal. My favorite is Royal Oak chunk Charcoal. I only use briquets in the smoker for long duration smoking. I use the briquetts and Royal Oak and add soaked wood chunks for smoke flavour.

If you'd been thinking, you could've grilled up a 3/4" bolt for her to use...

Cooking pizza outdoors is a big Deal these days with out door wood fired ovens- They can get 600degrees +. I haven't tried it personally yet, but if you have a large heavy grill where you can get good reflective heat-from something HOT-HOT like mesquite etc. its gotta be great.

With 104 outdoor temps-my attempt will have to wait.

Well it may be only in the dream stages, but the wife is planning an outdoor kitchen with a wood/charcoal fired grill and pizza oven.
I keep telling her when she figues out how to pay for it we will build it.
