Papa Murphys on the grill

Recommended Posts

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.

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

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

    • I broke the trigger guard my my t/c omega on the last day of the season.  I looked online but can't seem to find anywhere selling that part.  Any idea where to get one?  I'd rather not buy entire new muzzleloader. It's the silver part in this pic.    
    • Yes we have and still, It only makes sense that if 85% of this country's population identifies as Christian. 85% of the criminals when ask with a check off box on their in-processing form, would identify with what they were raised with as well. Big shock! By the way that question is on the in-processing forms so the few atheist's and other beliefs can be accommodated during their stay as well. It doesn't mean that the little Norwegian or German Lutheran ladies down in Belle Plaine are going to gun down Big Dave with their AR's after the church Pot Luck as he walks down the street! Fear-Not Dave.   
    • Not just heat, if you have central air it will run off that also though not as well.  Usually no real need to have a humidifier run in the summer though around here.  
    • You can buy shallow mount speakers for a couple extra bucks, but making a bumpout inside isn't to bad.  We put ours in the corners in the back with a 45'd wood box.  The front are in the bathroom wall so there was room there.  Going to throw in some outside ones next summer and for those I'm planning on shaving out the sprayfoam and just packing insulation in behind them.  They will be mounted behind cabinets so shouldn't lose to much heat.  Outside if they don't fit I will be buying the plastic pre-made spacers, don't want wood out there.
    • We've went over this before but over 85% of this country's population is Christian. Guess who is causing over 85% of the crime? And actually, there have been terroristic threats against the couple of outed atheists here in Belle Plaine.......
    • I like seeing that gas line open in the bathroom.  I saw a couple manufactures at a show this summer that had them hidden in the wall and that absolutely terrifies me.  If something were to happen with it they would be sol.
    • This was probably one of the most frustrating Muzzy seasons I can remember. There are lots of deer around. Cameras and tracks in the snow confirmed that. We just saw very few in the daylight. The properties we hunt do get hit pretty hard with the rifle guys, but usually with some snow/cold they will start to hit the food sources in the afternoons as the season progresses. But not this year. They would wait until about 5:30 before arriving on the food. Oh well we still had lots of fun. I will go out a few times yet with the bow. Still have a doe tag that would love to fill.
    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!!
