What do you make with left over pulled pork? Pulled Pork Pizza, what else! This is one of my favorite “left over” meals to make. Also, it was a great chance to try out using a stone on the 26 inch Weber.
I have been happy with the stone results on the 650, but for some reason I think I will enjoy using the stone on the kettle.
First off, the stone fits great. Second, it just seems more natural to make pizza over fire (read: coals) then it does over gas burners.
I use my normal dough recipe. For the sauce, I always use homemade BBQ sauce. Tonight, I was lucky enough to have some of my friend Mike’s Coca-Cola BBQ sauce left which he had recently sent me. I just had enough. From there, I added the pulled pork and then handfuls of shredded mozzarella. Simplicity at its best.
I employed the use of a pizza screen, because I find it makes my life that much easier. Once the pizza is loaded, I transferred it to the stone with my peel.
I prepped the grill for indirect heating. I used one full chimney of lit coals and then supplemented that with about a half of chimney of unlit coals. After everything was lit and the stone was in place, the hood temp measured about 450 degrees. I was hoping for more, but that worked great for tonight. I’m still learning about this bad boy.
The pizza cooked for about 15 minutes. I rotated it once about halfway through since I only had heat coming from the two opposite ends of the kettle.
The results? Great! I think I have found my new grill for making pizzas. Although after countless pizzas, I am beginning to see cracks in my 5 dollar Lowe’s stone. Time to get another one…and soon!
