BLT Pizza on the Cobb Grill
This will be my third try at getting a good pizza off of my little Cobb Grill. First two efforts were ok but I am sure I can do better with the high temperature cooks. I have given up on using a hearth stone as I don't think I can get the grill hot enough for this to work correctly.
About an hour before my dough was ready, I fired up the Cobb with about as much lump charcoal as it would hold. Started my fire and when it had a good start, I placed the cooking grid on the cooker as I wanted at least a 45 minute warmup.
My ingredients were a package of pre-cooked bacon, mozzarella cheese, Miracle Whip, lettuce, and Ro-Tel diced tomatoes & green chilies. I also made up enough dough for these two pizzas and some focaccia bread.
Formed the first pizza into about a 9” flat and then spread on the Miracle Whip. I then added some bacon.
Next step was to add some cheese.
As soon as the cooker was as hot as it was going to get, I loaded my first pizza.
The first pizza took about 12 minutes and after I pulled it off, I added the second pizza.
Both pizzas came out well except I would have liked to have a little more browning on the top sides. I know what to do to fix that on my next bake. The crusts were nice and crunchy and that is what I wanted.
I added the chopped up lettuce, the Ro-Tel tomatoes and green chilies, and some more bacon and then cut the pizzas up for serving.
The crust looked great and the pizzas were very good. I think the Cobb Grill can cook a pretty fair pizza.
