Info
This was my first use for my Big Green Egg 7" Ceramic Deep Dish Pizza Pan. I had been having trouble finding instructions on how to use this pizza pan when suddenly a recipe appeared on the BGE website. It was done in conjunction with King Arthur Flour who provided the recipe for the pizza dough. The instructions answered my questions on how to use this pan although it was written for BGE's new 14" pizza pan. I simply cut the ingredients in half for my smaller pan. I also changed the Italian sausage to pepperoni which is my favorite pizza topping. My last change was to use pamresan-reggiano cheese instead of parmesan. This was an excellent pizza. The crust was comparable to the crust on a Pizzeria Uno pizza. The fillings were somewhat different but equally as good if not better. Someone who had a slice of this pizza declared it to be the best slice of pizza he'd ever had. So I am obviously well pleased for my first attempt at this.
