Pizza on the Big Green Egg
In the mood for a perfect pizzeria-style pizza? Thanks to the Big Green Egg, you don’t need a wood-fired brick oven in your back yard to get the best pizza. Everyday grillers as well as chefs around the world know that the EGG performs just like a super-efficient firebrick oven.
In fact, EGG owners know a secret … that the Big Green Egg bakes even better than wood-fired ovens ever could, because heat from the natural charcoal radiates within the thick ceramic walls of the dome, allowing your food to bake quickly and evenly.
You can bake and roast your way to culinary perfection by cooking with indirect heat in your EGG. With indirect cooking, the food is not directly exposed to the flames and heat of the fire. A convEGGtor, which acts as a heat shield, is placed beneath the food to deflect the heat. Food is cooked by convection heat – heated air circulating within the dome – and radiant heat, which reflects off the charcoal, the ceramic walls and the dome.
EGGcessories for Baking Pizza
Our full line of baking EGGcessories makes it easy to cook the perfect pizza. Our convEGGtor and baking stones are made to the same specifications as the EGG itself, so they distribute heat evenly for better baking and browning, and the ceramics pull moisture from the outer surface of the dough for delicious brick oven crispiness.
