Steve makes Lehmann dough pizzas in his BBQ grill mod at his church different times for the teens in the area. Steve made 20 dough balls. As fast as Steve could bake the pies the teens ate them. I also got to bake a few pizzas. I sure had fun baking the pizzas in Steve’s BBQ grill mod. Steve’s Lehmann dough was made with KASL. The pizzas were super tender and baked in less than 3 minutes at around 650 degrees F. The reason my stopwatch on my cell phone showed a little over 3 minutes was because the pies had to be taken out and rotated with a fork. Steve’s metal peel is too big to rotate the pizzas in his BBQ grill mod.
The pizzas Steve made reminded me of Neapoltian pies in that they were super tender, but they had a crispness on the bottom, that I had never tasted before. They were half way between Neapolitan and NY style pizzas in my opinion.
Steve told me the first pie that comes out of the oven looks a little less brown on the rim. That is what happened.
Steve is sure a DIY kind of guy that he can think things though and then DIY. His modification of a BBQ grill he found sure works great and makes the best Lehmann dough pizzas I have ever eaten. I told Steve I would love to be able to have a BBQ grill mod like his. Steve didn’t even have the burner turned up the whole way.
All the teens did enjoy all the pizzas. Steve’s wife and I took a walk down the road from the church and there is a really beautiful pond there.
Thanks Steve for inviting me to be able to see how your BBQ grill mod works and also to be able to taste the pizzas!.
