5. Bake pizza per Perfect Pizza Dough recipe until done. Remove from grill stone with pizza peel and place on flat board or pan for cutting. DO NOT CUT PIZZA ON STONE. 6. The stone is fairly durable, but may break if dropped. Handle carefully. The stone retains an unbelievable amount of heat, so DO NOT HANDLE STONE FOR AT LEAST 4-6 HOURS AFTER COALS ARE EXTINGUISHED. PIZZA GRILL STONE Turns your outdoor charcoal or gas grill into an Old World stone oven to create crispy, mouth-watering pizzas with a distinctive wood-fired flavor. • Unique D-shape designed for a 22 ½" charcoal kettle grill with hinged grill grate. Works great on gas grills. • Large 20 ½ x 15 3/4" in. surface maximizes grill space yet allows plenty of oxygen to reach coals for maximum heat output. • Thicker than stones designed for indoor use, to withstand the high heat of an outdoor grill. • Exclusive clay composition engineered for use at temperatures up to 2300°F without cracking, drawing moisture from the dough for a crispier crust. • When used in conjunction with a hinged grill grate, add a wood chunk or wood chips to infuse your pizza with a rustic wood-fired flavor. 7. Your stone will blacken and accumulate stains from drippings and smoke. This will not alter pizza taste or the stone’s baking performance. However, cooking residue may smoke and create odors. Scrubbing with a scouring pad and a paste of baking soda and water will remove most burned on bits. If the accumulation is heavy, thoroughly sand with a hard abrasive like emery paper. PLEASE DO NOT Please do not bake cookies, or grill meat or other items with a significant fat content directly on the stone. The stone would absorb the fat and cause smoking, odors and stains. FOOD SAFETY REMINDER It is recommended that all meats, poultry, fish and shellfish are fully-cooked before using as a topping for your pizza. RECIPES: PERFECT PIZZA DOUGH Yield: Two 13-14-inch pizza shells Make dough ahead, about 1 hour before baking pizza. • Quality-made in the USA USE AND CARE OF YOUR PIZZA GRILL STONE 1. Wash stone with water before first use (no detergent). Dry the stone well. 2. Light 4 ½ Qt (90) charcoal briquettes in a chimney starter and let burn for 10 min. Pour heated briquettes into kettle grill, arranging coals in one layer in approximate D-shape of the stone, leaving 4" space to one side. Let charcoal heat up until coals are evenly gray. Replace grill grate with hinged portion over the 4" space. Put stone on grate with flat edge facing the hinged portion. Let stone heat up for 15-20 minutes. Stone is heated and ready to bake when a drop of water evaporates immediately when sprinkled on stone. 3. Open hinged grate to insert a wood chunk or chips in empty space just touching charcoal. Let wood flame for 1 minute. 4. Place hood on grill with baffle holes positioned at opposite side from wood to draw smoke over the pizza stone and let smoke for 5 minutes while prepping your pre-made pizza dough and topping. (see recipes following) 1 pkg. (¼ oz) instant dried yeast 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup water 2 tablespoons olive oil 3 ½ cups unbleached, all-purpose flour Extra flour or cornmeal Dissolve yeast in 1 cup very warm water (105-115ºF); let stand 5-10 minutes. Combine flour and salt in large mixing bowl. Make a well in center of flour and gradually work half the yeast mixture into well with your fingers. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and gradually work in remaining yeast mixture. Add a tablespoon or more of water, if needed, to make dough soft and smooth. Turn dough out onto flat surface and knead vigorously for at least 10 minutes—pushing dough away from you, then folding it back toward you—till it’s smooth and elastic with a dull sheen. Or, using dough hook on electric stand mixer, knead for 7-8 minutes. Don’t worry—you can’t over-knead it. Shape dough into a ball and place in a large greased bowl, turning dough over to grease the top. Cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap; let rise in a warm place till doubled in bulk, about 45-50 minutes. Divide dough in half. (*) On a lightly floured surface, roll or press each half into a 13-14-in. circle about 1/8-inch thick, leaving a thick ridge around edge so topping will not spill over. Sprinkle flour or cornmeal liberally over a pizza peel (or flat cookie sheet). Fold dough in half, then in half again. Carefully transfer it to the center of the peel and unfold. Rub about a tablespoon of olive oil over dough top surface and top with your favorite filling or recipe that follows. Open hood and slide pizza from peel onto preheated stone on grill by holding peel directly over stone, then using a series of short forward jerks while pulling peel toward you. Replace hood and bake 5 min. Rotate pizza and bake up to 5 min. more. Bottom should be crispy and browned and topping should be hot and cheese melted. (Alternatively, in the conventional oven, bake at 450ºF. on pre-heated stone for 2025 minutes or till crust is crisp and brown.) 1 cup coarsely chopped zucchini 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1 teaspoon dried oregano 2 cloves garlic, thinly-sliced (optional) Salt and pepper to taste 3 tablespoons olive oil 3 tablespoons freshly-grated Parmesan cheese Put all ingredients except cheese and olive oil into large baking pan. Drizzle on olive oil and toss well. Roast vegetables in preheated 425°F oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and toss vegetables. Return pan to oven for 5-7 minutes. Remove pan and allow to cool. Spread vegetables evenly over 13-14-inch pizza shell. Sprinkle on parmesan cheese. Bake as directed under Perfect Pizza Dough on Pizza Grill Stone. Remove baked pizza from the stone to a flat board or pan for cutting and serving. DO NOT CUT PIZZA ON THE STONE. CLASSIC PIZZA MARGHERITA (*) At this point, dough may be frozen for later use.
