Pizza Oven Wedge


For the Large Big Green Egg only

The two-part Pizza Oven Wedge gives your EGG a traditional brick oven setup by creating an easily accessible front opening. This makes quick work of sliding pizzas, flatbreads or other baked goods in and out of the EGG and allows you to keep a close eye on them as they cook.

Instructions for use

I gave the Big Green Egg Pizza Wedges a go in my Egg and got pretty good results. After a conversation with a customer (who hadn’t been so successful), I thought I would put together how I went about it. The Wedges don’t come with instructions!
Set up your Big Green Egg for an indirect cook with the ConvEGGtor feet up in your EGGspander basket. Place the stainless grid and baking stone on top.
Close your dome and open the bottom draft door fully, and your rEGGulator fully. Give your EGG 20-30 minutes to heat up the baking stone (no wedges in your Egg at this stage). If you have an infrared thermometer, check your baking stone is close to 250°C.
Now you can fit the wedges using a good pair of heat-proof gloves. Pull the dome down onto the wedges. Big Green Egg recommend closing the rEGGulator fully, I found I got better results leaving it open.
Roll out or stretch your pizza dough. I like to do this on a bed of polenta or semolina. Unlike flour, these won’t soak up moisture so you’ll find it easier to launch your pizza off the peel and you’re less likely to burn the base. It also gives authentic crispiness.
Launch your pizza into the centre of the baking stone. Give your Egg a few minutes to cook the pizza. I use a small 7′ turning peel to turn my pizza every so often to get an even cook.
Once almost cooked, use your peel to raise the pizza into the dome. This will help the top cook as it’s much hotter up there. Hold it for 15 or so seconds, you’ll see it crisp up. This is a technique used in a real pizza oven.
I found the wedges cooked a really lovely pizza. It’s a lot slower than a proper woodfired pizza oven, taking about 5 minutes or so. In my pizza oven, a pizza will cook in about 1 minute 15.
