Papa Murphys on the grill

10 posts in this topic

First off, I will admit I AM a 'charcoal purist', don't own a gas grill and never plan on doing so. I broke down this evening and bought a "grill ready prepared pizza". 6 minutes on a grill that was 15* above the mininum "recommended temp" for a charcoal grill,the pan was BURNED. I slid the pizza off of the store supplied pan onto a foil pan. It didn't help... the crust was BLACK. Called the store,'lowered a little heaven' until they agreed to replace the pizza. I have made no less than 50 pizzas on the grill using the Jeno's pizza mixes with a wide variety of toppngs. NOT ONCE have I had a pizza come off looking like this Papa Murphys did! So you know, DON'T WASTE your money on a T.V. ad,pizza, Be creative, try NEW toppings, Have FUN!! Build your own, You WON'T be sorry!! It takes 15 to 17 minutes and the crust is GOLDEN BROWN...not BLACK. Phred52

I've done some of the pre-made pizzas in my cooker. I only burn lump charcoal. When I am in doubt as to the crust, I use a pizza screen.

croixflats, It wasn't only the crust that burned, It was the "grill safe" pan they assemble it on!! The thing turned absolutely black! When I make the Jeno's mixes, I just put the pizza on an foil pizza pan that has been sprayed with cooking oil. When the crust pulls away from the sides about 1/4" I'll lift it to check for golden brown. Usually 15 to 17 minutes is about right. I must say, the pizza in thirdeyes' post looks pretty tasty!! Is that on a pizza stone as well as the screen? Phred52

And re the screen, what does that do for the crust? Where do I get one? That pie looked really good, but it didn't appear to have any anchovies. grin

The screen keeps the dough a fraction of an inch off the stone and reduces burning. They also make them really easy to get on and off the cooker. If you are doing more than one, you can build them ahead of time, put them on the screen and stack in the fridge (wax paper in between)

You can get nice ones at any kitchen supply store, these are "disposable" ones from WallyWorld, a 3-pack is a couple of dollars, and they last for many uses, not just one. Also good for grilling fish or veggies.

Thanks. The fish and veggies were on my mind as well. I have yet to grill a pizza, so that is definately on the to-do list.

thirdeye, Thanks re the stone. Now curious as to what kind of 'machine' you have? I just use a Weber with the rack set 6" above the coals, and then the foil pan, No stone, no screen. Although the foil pans I use have an embossed pattern on the bottom that could sub as a screen. I also have premade and refridged 3 pizzas to be made on the grille at a company ice-fishing contest last winter. Lotsa people were impressed with the results and have since tried it themselves. In the near future, I will be trying some Chicago style and cheesey crusts on the grille, Can taste it already, grilled and toasted cheese and tomato sauce! prov1900, post your results, okay? Since I started grilling pizzas at home, I have a hard time talking the family into a frozen or franchise pizza. Phred52

Sounds like you were too hot, anything will burn if you get it hot enough.

Blackjack, Not according to my grill thermometer. As per the instructions that come with the pizza, the temp window is 425*-450*. My grill was at 442* (17* above their MININUM temp and 8* below max.) the coals were 6.5" beneath the pizza (they say at least 6"). They also suggest 50-75 briquettes, I had about 60. I was well within their suggested guidelines, and the pan/pizza was only on for 6 minutes. Their instructions say 12-18 minutes. Had it been on that long, I would've had a glowing frisbee!! When I got the replacement pizza, about 12 minutes later, I put that on a foil pan, onto the same grill and it was done to perfection in 16 minutes. Phred52

    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...

    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.
