Yesterday was Pi Day. No, not that kind of pie. Pi. As in 22/7. As in 3.142857 and so on. Guess a bunch of nerds (I can call them that cuz I am one 😉 ) got together and decided March 14 (3/14) would be the perfect day to celebrate it. So in order to honor it in our own little way, we made some pizza pies since we aren’t into baking or desserts really. You can believe that, or you can just go ahead and believe pizza was already on the menu.
Me, I’m pretty traditional when it comes to pizza. Give me pepperoni and I’m a happy guy. Make it all meat and I’ll be your best friend. So I just kept it simple last night. The dough we picked up from Tom Thumb (aka Safeway or Randall’s in some party of the country) since I had a doctor’s appointment after work and didn’t have time to make it from scratch. The sauce was Buitoni’s Marinara Sauce that can be found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.
That’s not nearly enough cheese, is it?
My lovely wife, Mrs. G, gets a bit more creative when it comes to pizza. She likes to have those vegetable things on hers. Mushrooms are a must. Last night, she went with an Alfredo sauce, some chicken, mushrooms and artichoke hearts.
The pizza’s went on to a 550F stabilized Egg with the placesetter legs down, 3 little green feet as spacers and then the BGE pizza stone.
Mrs. G’s pizza took about 16 minutes to cook.
Mine took about 10 as I rolled out my crust a little thinner and had less toppings. I somehow didn’t manage to get a picture of mine inside, the last picture I have is right before I pulled it off the Egg.
Even before we got the Egg, grilled pizza has been one of our favorite cooks. It’s way better than delivery and it has that taste of being fired in a wood burning oven. It just can’t be beat. Think I’ll go eat one of those remaining slices now. Ciao!
