Before you start cooking, you'll need to prepare your Kamado grill. Start by lighting the charcoal and waiting for it to heat up to a temperature of around 500°F to 600°F. Make sure to set up the grill for indirect heat cooking.


Step 2: Prepare the Pizza Dough and Toppings

While the grill is heating up, it's time to prepare the pizza dough and toppings. You can use store-bought pizza dough or make your own from scratch. Once you have your dough ready, stretch it out into a round shape on a lightly floured surface. Don't worry if it's not perfectly round – a rustic-looking pizza is just as tasty!

Next, add your toppings. You can use whatever toppings you like, but keep in mind that less is often more when it comes to pizza. A few simple toppings like fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil can be just as delicious as a more elaborate pizza.


Step 3: Preheat the Pizza Stone

Once the grill is hot and the pizza is topped, it's time to preheat the pizza stone. Place the pizza stone on the grill and let it heat up for at least 15 minutes. This will ensure that the stone is hot enough to cook the pizza evenly.

Step 4: Cook the Pizza

Once the pizza stone is hot, carefully transfer the pizza onto the stone. Use a pizza peel or a flat cookie sheet to slide the pizza onto the stone. Close the lid of the grill and let the pizza cook for around 8-10 minutes. Keep an eye on the pizza to make sure it doesn't burn – you want the crust to be golden brown and crispy.


Step 5: Enjoy!

Once the pizza is cooked, carefully remove it from the grill using the pizza peel or cookie sheet. Let it cool for a few minutes, then slice it up and enjoy!

Cooking the perfect pizza on a Kamado grill using a pizza stone is easy once you know the steps. With a little practice, you'll be making delicious homemade pizzas in no time. So fire up the grill, get your pizza ingredients ready, and get cooking!
