First pizza

I wanted to try out a pizza on the smoker. It turned out quite well. After letting my dough warm up for a couple hours, I spread it out onto a pizza pan with a good amount of olive oil on it. I like to let my dough cold ferment for two or more days. The crust is really much better that way. I let the dough set for about 20 minutes then flopped it over to my pizza screen. I was thinking the screen, along with the olive oil, would produce a light and crispy crust. It did.

I had the smoker at 500 and then tossed the screen in and let it go for 6 minutes. I actually peeked in around the 3 minute mark just to see what was going on. It took a few minutes to get the oven back to temp. Now that I know how long it should take, no more peeking. At 6 minutes I took it out and put the toppings on it. Just the basics, sauce, pepperoni, sausage and cheese. Back in for 3 minutes. Was even able to peek in throught the rear vents to check it out.

I should have let it go in for another minute, but I pulled it out for a total of 9 minutes. The crust was amazing with a decent amount of crispiness and smokiness. One more minute more and the cheese would probably have spread out a little better.

All and all, for the first attempt on the 340, I will be repeating again, only going for 4 minutes total cook, rather than 3.

The depth of the grill is around 15-1/2". The screen is 14". It worked out well, except the pizza was to small and my boys took care of it in no time. I will make a full 14" pie the next time.

Awesome thanks for the response. When i looked there where so many sizes, i speculated it was either 14 or 16 but wasnt sure. Ive done pizza on kamado but never on pellets. Need to do that soon.
