Pizza-Porta™- The answer to Authentic Pizza at home.

 

The Pizza-Porta optimizes the oven functions of a Big Green Egg or a Kamado Joe.  By capping off the top and accessing food through a door you can take advantage of consistent, even temperatures for hours of pizza cooking or hearth baking. 

 

Comments from customers:

I have had my BGE for 14 years and this was the easiest, stress free, and best pizza cook I have done. What a difference!
— Gil - Florida
this thing made pizza as good as the best pizza we’ve ever had!
— Trey - After the first cook
I didn’t think it would make that big of difference on one pizza. But after tasting the crispy crust, I am a believer.
— John - New England Egger
You cracked the code with this thing. Why didn’t I think of this?
— Todd - Long-time Egger
It is so fun to make a bunch of pizzas for a party.
— Tim - Early customer
I’m shocked at how much better a cook you get with the Pizza-Porta.  Beautiful, evenly cooked all around instead of undercooked toppings and overcooked bottom
— Tom - BBQ Blogger
This is the best pizza I have ever made on my “Egg”
— Joe - Texas
These are restaurant quality pies coming out of a backyard grill!

How it Works:

Without the Pizza-Porta

The heat source in a kamado grill is below the pizza stone.  The fire heats the plate setter, which heats the bottom of the pizza stone.  The dome does heat up as the heat rises and escapes through the chimney. The challenge is that the heat is exiting so rapidly that it is difficult to get the dome hot enough to cook the top of the pizza. As the temperature is increased over 450F the differential in temperature increases and the pizza stone burns the bottom before the dome can cook the top. Opening the lid to add or check a pizza complicates temperature control even further because each time the dome is open 1) Significant heat is lost,  2) The dome ceramic cools  3) The fire is fully vented. This variability in temperature detracts from the quality of your pizza crust.

With the Pizza-Porta

With the Pizza-Porta installed, the interior stone setup is the same. The performance difference is due to the modification of the cooking chamber. Heat is concentrated in the dome area, heating the ceramic of the dome to balance with the surface temperature of the pizza stone. Heat must also pass over the pizza to escape out the side vents resulting in convection cooking. The size of the door is calibrated so opening has limited impact on the interior temperature.  These details all work together to ensure the environment inside the oven is balanced top and bottom at a consistent temperature. This balanced temperature chamber will make lighter, crispier crust; whether it is one pizza or twenty.
