This coal-fired Big Green Egg pizza recipe is great for a party!

In this episode of “Chef Tips,” I traveled down to Laguna Beach for a Big Green Egg pizza party, complete with every imaginable toppings available!

For the base of the pizza, we used a no-knead dough and topped it with a simple Italian tomato sauce.

My pizza sauce uses just three ingredients. Simple is best!

The antipasto platter was used for guests to make their own pizza creations.

Our pizza toppings included buffalo mozzarella, red onion, mushrooms, pecorino romano cheese, cracked green olives, capicola, black olives, salami, pepperoni, mortadella, Italian bacon, Canadian bacon, sliced garlic, hot Italian sausage, mild Italian sausage, shredded smoked pork, fresh basil, fresh homegrown tomatoes, Italian cherry peppers, slices jalapenos, and more!

The Big Green Egg is a unique smoker/grill that can reach temperatures over 600 F. It’s the perfect temperature for making homemade pizzas. If you do not have a Big Green Egg, you can make pizzas the same way by placing the pizza stone in a very hot 500 F oven or grill. At home, I use my Green Mountain Grills Pizza Oven attachment.

Use your imagination to create your own unique pizza toppings!
