Kettle turned pizza oven

Bought me one of those conversion kits for silver kettle. here is link, http://www.kettlepizza.com/
Finally had a chance to use it tonight. Thought contraption is well made. Little hard to get pizza in small opening though. Had to rotate pizza halfway(probably my fault, coals too much in the back of kettle). Results were what i hoped, chewy crisp crust.

Re: Kettle turned pizza oven

Tim I agree with Nick, is that a from scratch crust? If so will you share the recipe, if not scratch what did you use? It looks great!

Yes, homemade sauce and crust.
3 cups unbleached bread flour
good pinch salt
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup warm water
1 package yeast


The bread flour makes a huge difference!!!! One of these days I'm gonna order some of this too: http://www.amazon.com/Antimo-Caputo-Ita ... 769&sr=8-1

Damn I wondered what was wrong with this pie I did order Antimo Caputo Italian Superfine, I need all the help I can get. It will be a few weeks before time allows, I will post good or bad. Any sauce or working the dough help will be appreciated.

Don't be afraid to let the dough rest.

Re: Kettle turned pizza oven

Like the Cap'n, my experience with homemade crust has been less than stellar.

Re: Kettle turned pizza oven

The sauce I make is simple. 1 can whole peeled San Marzano tomatoes. 8-10 leaves fresh basil rolled together and sliced thin. 1 teaspoon dry oregano, 1-2 garlic cloves minced, lots of black pepper, salt to taste, and 1 tablespoon sugar. Simmer 15-20 minutes till consistency is like chunky ketchup. Dont worry about seeds and large pieces of tomato at the beginning. Will all cook down.

Re: Kettle turned pizza oven

That's a great looking pizza. My two cents on crust is if you leave the sugar out it won't burn/char nearly as fast. Similar to BBQ sauce on ribs. Some people like that though, you just need to keep a close eye on it. Half a TBS of regular olive oil will get you good browning on your edges and bottom. With the high heat, it has almost a deep frying effect on your crust. Just like everything else, it takes practice and patience. Wouldn't change much about that one though, it looks awesome!

Re: Kettle turned pizza oven

Here's all I know about making pizza dough I usually use the frozen dough balls from Publix or Sam's (you have to buy a case of 'em @ Sam's)...





Enjoy.

Re: Kettle turned pizza oven

Try this tomato sauce http://www.escalon.net/6in1.aspx .
You can order online in 28 oz cans cheap.
That stuff is so good you will eat it straight out of the can.
Hands down the best tomato sauce you can buy.

Nice lookin pizza . A good pizza website is pizzamaking.com.
Everthing you will EVER need to know about pizza.
