my wife fancies herself as a pretty good pizza maker and actually the pizzas
are great. we recently had a party in the back yard and we made pizzas for
dinner. candice made dozens of personal size pizza crusts and we had all
the fixings out on the picnic table. everyone got their own pizza and then
decorated it and put it on the grill. yeah...the grill. we used a 12x24x1
kiln shelf and put it on our gas grill. those were the best pizzas i've
ever had and it was lots of fun.
