RE: Cooking Pizza on Weber Baby Q


Can I just report that after a few hiccups, we have now mastered the art of cooking a pizza in our Baby Q! 'What's so hard about doing that?', some are bound to ask. Yes, I had top tips from nomad members (get a pizza stone, foil the right way down, etc.) but to no avail - until the third go, when I decided to have a look at proceedings. Hubby had cooked the pizzas in the past, and had followed all instructions and tips faithfully, but the pizzas still weren't cooking in the stated time. When I had a look at the q, I got the surprise of my life to discover that hubby (without his glasses!) had inadvertently set it to the lowest temp setting . . . instead of the highest! No wonder our pizzas were taking so long to cook! Not anymore though - hubby has cooked two absolutely delicious ones since then (with his glasses on! ) and they only take about 20 - 25 minutes. Yum!

Hi Shell,

Thanks for replying. Yes, we did all that because that was what was in the instructions with the stone. It said to heat the stone on high, make the pizza on the tin tray and then put it on without turning the heat down, and cook with the lid down. That's what we did, and . . . an hour and 5 minutes later, it's cooked. I just went down and checked it!

HELP! What are we doing wrong? We bought the pizza stone for the Baby Q Webber plus the tin tray, pre-heated the stone for 20 minutes with the gas on high, put the thin crust, homemade pizza on it - tomato paste, chopped bacon, pineapple and cheese on a 2 tortilla wraps partially overlapped - cooked it for the recommended 20 minutes, and 40 minutes later it's still not cooked and the top is still not brown. The cheese has dried a little on top, but the bacon isn't cooked. Can anyone trouble shoot for us, please? It's still in there, and eventually we'll get our pizza, but it is disappointing when everyone says it cooks so quickly and easily. We must be doing something not quite right.

i have the next size up but hopefully should work out the same, put your weber on lowest heat setting with pizza stone on top of plate.leave for 20 minutes then slide your pizza on to stone for 15 minutes. perfecto

Thanks Rod. I'll check out both places.

What a whopper! Lots of good fillets on that one!Hubby's caught the big barra, but not me - not for want of trying though. We went charter fishing up at Karumba particularly to snag a barra, and although we caught plenty of other fish, we didn't manage the biggie until we went charter fishing again up the Endeavour River at Cooktown. Hubby had such a grin on his face!

Hey thanks! . I'm in Central Queensland and nowhere near an Aldi's unfortunately, Firefly, but Rod, where did you get yours from? I know Barbecues Galore sell the Baby Q, so they might have a pizza stone too. Will check them out when we're near there again after next week.

Thank you, Rod. This might sound like a silly question, mate, but what could we cut it with? I was thinking we'd have a look when we get there, and if it doesn't look like it would fit, we could always resort to the official Webber pizza stone I guess. No doubt it will cost more, but at least we'd have one!

Hi Romy not sure if they fit in baby q, if not may be able to cut to size, Rod

Do the Robins Kitchen pizza stones fit into the Baby Q though, Rod? If so, wow! We don't have one in our little town, but we are going to the city 2 weeks from now for a medical appointment, and I think they have a Robin's Kitchen there in one of the big shopping centres. Thanks Rod.

Hi

It is homemade pizza on pre-made bases - cant think of the name in a red and green box in freezer section at supermarket. But now we use pita bread for thin pizzas -yum!

Shell, that pizza looks so good! I bought hubby a BabyQ for Christmas 2 years ago, and the roasts it cooks are delicious! They have that lovely smoky flavour that you can't get in a normal oven. Will definitely have to look into a pizza stone for it now! Thanks for sharing!
