At East Gloucester Stop and Shop supermarket this morning and these frozen pizzas were on sale. They looked good and because I’m always trying to discover more things to prepare on the kettle i thought I’d give it a shot. I didn’t have access to a pizza stone at the dock so this is how it’s going down-
Starting out with a Sreamin’ Sicilian Frozen Pizza.
Fire up the kettle with a heaping chimney full of coals and the charcoal baskets pushed wide apart so we can place the pizza in the middle for indirect cooking. A chunk of cherry for smoke. also a couple of slivers of foil to guard the edges of the pizza from where they would be over the charcoal baskets so the pizza won’t burn.
Tossed the frozen pizza on and added a generous amount of extra shredded cheese-
Set the timer for 18 minutes. I’ll report back.
So 18 minutes later and its done-
I’d say its a 5 on a scale from 1-10. If we didn’t live in a community full of awesome Italian bakeries and pizzerias it would probably score a little higher. Anywhere else like say the Midwest it’s probably a 6.5.
Edible, and just OK but I won’t be seeking it out any time soon to do again.
Al Contarino and George Peters are the creators and owners Of KettlePizza, an insert system that turns charcoal kettle grills into outdoor pizza ovens for very little money. As it turns out Al’s sister Donna is a regular GMG reader and after seeing my obsession with grilling and that I bought a KettlePizza insert, she suggested that Al and I get together and have at it making some backyard pies.
Well I feel pretty comfortable cooking up meat but when it comes to dough and pizza making obviously I’m gonna enlist Sista Felicia who already has her own dough recipe and multiple pizza recipes in her cookbook- Gifts of Gold (purchase her cookbook here)
Felicia maintained that one of the key reasons for the over the top results besides having awesome equipment in the Stok Drum Charcoal Grill and KettlePizza was the very best ingredients from Sclafani’s Italian Bakery and The Cave
The fun we had making pizzas in the back yard combined with the crazy incredible results makes The KettlePizza system an absolute no brainer must have grill component.
