KettlePizza: Make Woodfired Pizza in Your Own Backyard!

One of my goals this summer is to master the grill. When the weather is hot and humid, and I still have four kids to feed, the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven. And, yet, I’m hesitant to throw steaks, burgers, or ribs on the grill with any confidence that they will be edible. Besides, I’m not much of a carnivore so none of those things really appeal to me and the kids would much rather have pizza. With that being said…
Check out the KettlePizza.


You can easily turn your charcoal grill into a woodfired pizza oven and make fresh homemade pizza (with your favorite toppings) right in your own backyard! The KettlePizza works with all kettle style grills, including Weber, which is the grill we have. The KettlePizza kit is made from stainless steel and includes a hi-temp thermometer and wood handles. Super easy to install with easy to follow directions, you simply place the cooking chamber right on top of your grill. My KettlePizza was up and ready to go within minutes.With a pile of charcoal briquets and a few small pieces of driftwood from our latest day at the beach, I had a nice 550 degree oven ready for prime pizza baking. The open front was perfect for watching the small flames lick the bottom and edges of the pizza and made the woodfired-feel complete.

I used both the KettlePizza cordierite pizza stone and their heavy gauge aluminum pan for separate pizzas as with a family of 6, we can eat. I love the pan for a thicker crust pizza and the stone for more of a thin crust pizza. Both gave us an evenly browned crust that was crisp and chewy, but not hard or brittle. And, the toppings were well-cooked with gooey cheese strings pulling between slices!
I’ve been a pizza crazy person lately with my new KettlePizza and we’ve tried (at least) a dozen different toppings. Next time I’m going to try a breakfast pizza!

If you’re nervous about working with pizza dough, not to worry! I tried both homemade dough (right out of the bread machine) and the refrigerated dough in the canisters at the store. Both came out great and without complaint! I was really surprised at how evenly the pies cook. No misshapen edges or crazy dough bubbles at all.Β And, I absolutely love (and totally suggest) the KettlePizza Pro-Peel, an aluminum pizza paddle that is perfectly sized and easy to manipulate.

The KettlePizza is the most fun I’ve had this summer using our grill! I’ve gained so much grill-confidence with the help of this sturdy, easy to mount cooking chamber complete with a thermometer and open faced front. I will be using our KettlePizza often. Pricey take-out (at least for pizza) is a thing of the past at our house.

Being able to turn out hot, fresh pizzas for our family get-togethers will knock the socks off those sometimes boring hotdogs and hamburgers! Forget all the condiments and toasting the buns…all you need is a pizza cutter! Oh, and don’t forget the fixings for S’mores (if you’re not stuffed with pizza)! Just lift up the cooking chamber, carefully, as it will be seriously hot, and you’ll have a great bed of ashed charcoal for toasting marshmallows. πŸ™‚

I received a KettlePizza kit for review purposes only. No other compensation was made. Regardless, my opinion is 100% my own. Full Disclosure.

    That is so cool! An outdoor pizza oven is definitely on my list of wants for my dream house, but I could just get this in the meantime!
