Now we carry a double rack so you can cook 2 pizzas at once.
What a day - read about our adventure.
I do a great deal of searching on "Pizza ovens". "Backyard pizza", "Garden Ovens" to see what is going on in the market. I came across

The Pensacola Eggfest marks the 1 year anniversary of the Pizza-Porta product. I had been tinkering with a way to improve the results of my pizza-making in the egg for some time. Last year I decided to "go-for-it". We loaded up three
On Saturday, May 7th, we joined a fellow entrepreneur and friend Evan, from Hedgehog Lacrosse,for our first real-live barbecue contest. Smoke on the Lake is a fundraiser for the Rotary club of North Cobb County, GA. This event gave us a chance to test out some changes in our hinge design. Cooking Friday night and five hours on Saturday gave us lots of time to test. We also got to some Pizza R&D. Hedgehog Lacrosse has a snazzy tent and trailer that we enjoyed over the 2 day event.
We setup at this beautiful setting on Lake Allatoona near Acworth, GA on Friday night. Not knowing what to expect we only brought 10 pizza doughs along for the night. The crowd finished those off in no time. We enjoyed Evan's fantastic wings, a concert and fireworks to end the night.
Early Saturday morning we put the Pizza-Porta to work roasting peppers while getting up to temperature.
After the pizzas starting rolling out, we had some guest pizza makers show up to help. Our kids basically took over operations.
The day was picture perfect with blue skies and a great crowd. We even got a sneak taste of the winning ribs submission and second place chicken winner - thanks to our neighbors - Team Sweetbottom. They pulled an all night effort and took home some hardware.
On the pizza R&D front, we tried some different combinations. We stripped the meat off a batch of chicken wings and added hot sauce, blue cheese, and mozzarella to make a wing pizza that was fantastic. Then, to test chicken thighs, we added roasted garlic, and Fontina cheese. It really brought out the flavor of dark grilled chicken. Another notable experiment was testing different versions of pulled pork.
After an evening and a whole day of open and closing the Pizza-Porta - we are satisfied with the new hinge design. On to production.
Thanks kids for running the show for a while!
Make your own hand-crafted pizza this weekend.
We were planning to do an event at on offsite location. It is better to roll out dough on a granite countertop that is easy to clean and has a smooth texture. I came up with this simple, cheap, tile solution.
I visited a major floor and decor tile outlet and found this large 23" by 23" ceramic tile. As you can see it is hard to tell that it is not real marble. The marble tiles would have worked, but this tile was less than $10. I will bet that you could just lay this tile on your BGE table and it would be fine for years. I am a classic over-doer so I rough cut a $12 piece of cement backer board glued it to the back and then used a trim bit on the router to trim it flush.
This makes a perfect surface to press out your dough right next to the Big Green Egg. This size also leaves room for your tomato sauce, onions, mushrooms, and BBQ pork in containers around the edge.
