Transform Your Grill Into a Pizza Oven

See also

The grilling season is upon us. While we love a good burger as much as the next guy, come fourth of July weekend, and the level of red meat consumption has reached the breaking point for many. Unless, of course, you could rotate a pizza or two into your afternoon grill session. We've got the gadgets that will help you get it done this summer.

BakerStone is helping grill masters all over the country get their pizza on with the BakerStone Pizza Oven. The baking box sits atop your heated grill. A 450 degree grill is then transformed into an 800 degree pizza oven. There is nothing to fuel, plug in or attach. Simply place on your grill, preheat, and then bake delicious homemade pizza in 2 to 4 minutes. Fancy roasted veggies to serve along side your grilled corn? No problem. The box does that, too. At under $150, it's the right price and right size for the season. You can take it along on camping trips, vacations and to that holiday cookout at your neighbor's house. $149.99

Kettlepizza is a pizza oven attachment that was developed to give people an affordable way to cook real wood fired pizza on a traditional charcoal kettle grill. The stainless steel sleeve goes between the grill top and bottom creating a cooking chamber that remains consistently hot throughout the cooking cycle because the lid never needs to be removed. This solves the problem of overcooked bottoms and under cooked tops which is the common result when cooking pizza on an outdoor grill that doesn't have a complete enclosure. The Kettlepizza is slightly more complicated to assemble than Bakerstone (you've got to attach handles and what not) and it's all that portable, but it's a great choice if you're a charcoal kettle die hard. $199

The Grilled Pizza Stone is less of an attachment than it is an accessory. The stone slab fits right into your kettle grill and has the capability to reach a heat of 1000 degrees and will stay intact up to 2300 degrees. The idea here is to use it just like you would in your oven. Let it heat, then add your pizza onto it and close the lid. $54

The ZaGrill™ transforms the grill into an outdoor convection oven. This is perfect for frozen pizzas, but will also work on fresh pizza. This is a simple metal pan with legs and handles, so all you need to do is add it to your grill. Now, this is really just a hot pan, so if you aren't cooking with wood chips, your taste won't be all that enhanced. It's light weight enough to take along on your camping and fishing trips, family vacations and picnics. Great for your home grill, too. $29.99
