Believe it or not, but cooking pizza on a charcoal grill ain’t no easy feat. More often than not – you know this if you’ve tried – the dough will turn to an inedible, black charcoal like consistancy before the rest of the pizza fully bakes. The solution? The Kettle Pizza.
The Kettle Pizza is an addon accessory that install in minutes atop your prexisting kettle grill, such as a Weber. An opening in the front not only allows culinary masters to insert and remove their pizza, but helps control the temp through “consistent” heat loss” by allowing hot air to flow over the top of the pie.
To properly use the Kettle Pizza they recommend that you use a combination of wood and charcoal, and place the fuel at the rear (relative to the opening) of the grill so as to not provide too much direct heat to the base of the pizza. This fuel combo should result in that authentic wood oven pizza flavor. The Kettle Pizza is compatible with pizza stones and if you so desire, can be used to bake other goodies, such as cookies.
The price for the Pizza Kettle varies, but the smaller of the sizes starts at $140.
