The Pizza's that you show being cooked on the BGE are just AWESOME, I have looked at the photos several times now and just can't get over what a wonderful job you do on that BGE!
Plus the advantage of being to make whatever one wants on the pizza as a topping.

I am a Pizza freak and just have to ask you about the cost of cooking say a couple of regular pizza's like say, peperoni/ sausage/ cheeze. The bigest the BGE will cook.
What is the total cost of a Pizza including fuel/ingrediants/whatever right down to the end of cooking.

No need to be exact, just a good estimate would be really great.

I honestly have never done the math on it. When I cheat, I get a ball of dough from the grocery store, and it makes 2 pizzas about 14" or a bit larger for $1.79. making your own dough is even cheaper as its just flour, yeast, salt, sugar and water. Gotta be under a buck, probably less than $.50. As for the rest of it, we always have pepporni on hand (makes a great snack) as well as cheese. We kind of dig around in the fridge and come up with other stuff. Maybe half an onion left over from another recipe. Same with mushrooms, bell peppers. I wouldn't count fuel as its just something we always keep on hand for all our cooks. I wouldn't know how to measure out how much is used in a cook as there is still plenty left over afterward, just shut the egg down and use it for the next cook. All said, I'd be really surprised if it came out more than $5 a pizza. A lot cheaper than ordering out for sure and so much better.

TOOlman, now you understand what I'm talking about. On sundays when the foot ball games/Nascar are on, it seems my place is like a magnet for people. Hell, can't blaim them! With the economy in the dumps they just can't find jobs!!
Just can't believe some people are going to vote for Ob again!!

Question: What were you cooking your Pizza on, and were they coming out great?

Griffin, thanks for your reply, I see your point and more than likely I would be in the same position, just not as much things to through on the pies. I live alone, one guy can only keep so much "fixings" in stock. Hope you understand.
