Preparing your Meat Lover's pizza (Using Homemade Pizza Dough)
Sprinkle flour onto your bench. Use a rolling pin to roll out your pizza base until you get the desired thickness.
Using your fists, gently turn and push your knuckles outwards to spread your pizza dough.
Lay your dough out flat and roll your dough onto your rolling pin. Sprinkle more flour onto a pizza serving tray. and roll it back out. Gently push the edges out to fill the serving tray.
Using the back of a dessert spoon spread barbecue or tomato paste onto the pizza base, starting from the middle in circle motions until covered in pizza sauce.
Sprinkle cheese, ground beef, onion, and ham followed by all of your chosen toppings.
Cooking your Meat Lover's Pizza
The pizza is heavy and won't slide onto the pizza stone. Place the serving tray directly onto the pizza stone, close the lid, and cook for 5 minutes on the high setting.
Family Q owners, turn the small has control knob to the off position and leave the large gas control knob on high to quickly strengthen the pizza dough and make it easier to move to the pizza stone.Medium and Baby Q owners, leave the gas control knob on high.
After 5 minutes lift the lid and check if the pizza dough is strong enough to move to the pizza stone without splitting. Use a large flat tool such as a pizza spatula to gently lift and push the pizza onto the stone.
Close the lid and turn the gas control knob to the medium/middle setting. This is for both Family Q, Medium, and Baby Q.
Maintain a temperature between 250°C to 260°C (480°F to 500°F) at all times by adjusting the gas control knob between medium to medium high.
Cook for 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown on the edges and underneath the pizza. Try to avoid lifting the lid of the weber to keep the heat inside.
When the pizza is cooked, gently lift and push the pizza back onto the pizza serving tray, turn off the gas control knob/s, and shut off the LPG gas bottle.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes, slice into 8 pieces, and serve.
