I decided to make some pizza tonight and show how the Akorn works for this offering.

Loaded the cooker up with Royal Oak lump and some apple wood chunks. I like to use a double defuser for pizza as I find just one pizza stone is a wee bit hot on the bottom of the pie. I have one pizza stone on the lower grate and one on the main grate.. Works real good.. Less heat to the bottom of the pie so the cheese can melt and brown a bit.

I got some dough from an Italian resto here in town.. Real good stuff and I am hard pressed to make better.



I work the dough out with my fingers by pressing them into the dough till I get almost the size of pizza I want. I then give it a wee stretch over my hands.. No rolling pin as I want a few bubbles in the crust.

For the first pie my wife wanted a "Canadian" pizza with Pepperoni,bacon and mushroom.







ready to go..



Almost pizza cooking time.

More to come as things unfold.. Hope I dont burn this beauty or I am sleepin on the couch.. Laughing

So here's the rest of the pix. I think this was my best effort yet with making pizza on the Akorn. Real crispy crust and nice bubbles inside.



Canadian just about ready to come off. I think this is about 5 minutes in.





The second pie had tomatoes, basil, black olives and some sweet onion..



Smokin hot. I think it was a lot hotter than the guage said, nearly took my eye brows off when I opened the lid..



Ready to come off in just over 4 minutes, if that..

Thanks for lookin. Wink

Manana. Just a little something you can now make in your backyard.

KAM. Thanks my man. It sure was good.

HFG. Pizza is one of my favorite foods. Great to be able to make decent pie at home.

Rollin. Pull the trigger, you wont be dissapointed.

Mr T. Good luck with the diet.. Something to look forward to when you can carb it up again.

GF. No delivery.. Dine in only.

zski. Some wood smoke sure did the trick.

Some would say that Your Pizza Expose' would be a
"Hard Act to Follow."

Hell, If I had to compare My efforts making Pizza in the cooker with what You just posted, I'd be Hard Pressed to even
SHOW it here! Shocked Laughing Wink

...Another "Double Barreled Blast" from the Akorn Meister! ...

Sweet Brother, Sweet! Cool

Best Regards,

Tony Very Happy

Very nice Roxy. I always enjoy your posts. I have an Akorn as well. I have not made a pizza, but it sure cooks one heck of a steak. Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous pizzas, my only "complaint" is that the pepperoni belongs on top of the cheese. Razz

Durn it! I was going to ask you for the recipe.

I make my own (on the gasser grill and in the oven), but it works best for super thin (cracker) crust. My family (wife in particular) would like a thicker crust from time to time so I've been on the look out for a good version to try.

My Lowes 10% coupon arrived in the email box today, I may be getting one of those Akorns real soon...

ICD - Do it. The only things you really need are a good stone and a hot oven, the rest is up to personal interpretation.

I have an Akorn.. But a heads up.. I saw on another site where a guy's local Kroger had Akorns marked down from 300.00 to 149.99 Shocked

If I had a Kroger near by I would check there by all they have and make enough back to pay for my own..
