If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you may remember the awesome gift I gave my husband one year. It was an attachment for the Weber grill that turned your grill into a pizza oven. It’s called a Kettle Pizza. I’ve always wanted an outdoor pizza oven and I figured this was the next best thing.

Kettle Pizza Oven

Every summer we put it to good use. We haven’t perfected the pizzas on the grill yet but we’re getting close. My husband is an expert pizza maker, he’s got the crust down to a science. First he makes the dough and allows it to rise. While it’s rising he gets all the other ingredients ready.

While the dough was rising we followed the directions and built a fire in the grill. Adding some wood to the charcoal gives you a very hot fire.

Eventually the thermostat registered hot!

As soon as the pizza “oven” was ready the pizza was formed.

First a little homemade pizza sauce.

Add sauce to the pizza.

Followed by sausage, fresh red peppers, a few roasted red peppers and a couple of hot peppers.

Then some mozzarella cheese, a little Parmesan and the pizza was ready to go in the oven.

Since the oven is so hot the pizza cooks rather quickly, 5-6 minutes. The trick is keeping an eye on it and occasionally giving it a spin so it cooks evenly.

It was delicious and we’re already thinking of which pizza we’ll try next.

Maybe a Clam and Bacon Pizza or maybe a Tomato Basil. So many choices!

Here is the simple recipe we use for the crust.

2 cups flour
1 ¼ tsp instant yeast
¾ tsp salt
1 Tbsp olive oil
About ½ to ¾ cup warm water

Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Stir in the olive oil. Stir in the warm water, you may not need all of the water so add slowly. Turn the dough onto your work surface and knead until smooth and shiny. Place the dough in a covered, oiled bowl to rise until double in bulk.

If your dough doesn’t want to stretch let it rest a few moments and try again. Once the dough is shaped, add a little sauce, spread lightly. Add your cheese and toppings. Bake in the oven or in your Kettle Pizza Oven and enjoy!

Hi Nancy,
This looks delicious. I never knew that had such a machine as a Kettle Grill. Thanks for sharing on Real Food Fridays. Pinned & twitted.

I’ve always wanted to try this. We use a gas grill, but I’m sure that would work as well. Just no wood fired taste. I’m going to save your recipe as well. – Margy

The recipe will work anywhere even in your oven! I’m sure it would work on a gas grill too!!

What an awesome grill! The pizza looks amazing, not to mention delicious. I can only imagine just how good it must taste baked on the grill. Wow!

It does make a good pizza that’s for sure!

I immediately thought of Doug Heffernen from the King of Queens sitcom. He always wanted an outdoor pizza oven! We need an attachment like this for our gas grill. My hubby would be perfecting a crust too! Thanks for sharing at the Merry Monday party. I had no idea such an attachment existed!
