    Nope ;) LOL No oven cooking for them
    It's a trick for fast cooking without a fan or even pizza oven
    Once you have the dough made
    Get a cast iron skillet to over 350c or 400c
    Throw the pizza Dough in the skillet then the topping etc and wait till the base is cooked just like a stone baked base
    Meanwhile get your grill to over 400c aka max heat
    Then the base is cooked
    Quickly under the searing grill under 2 mins later it's cooked all way through

    My issue I have is if I just want a pizza 1 night and haven't prepped anything.

    I managed to get 80 frozen dough balls but they still need 8+ hours to defrost properly, so means I can at least decide the morning that I want pizza for the evening.

    But if making fresh dough you need a good 24-36hours.

    Love the thought of an Uuni but after just purchasing a new BBQ, it's down the list of important buys right now haha.

    Has anyone tried the Kettlepizza attachments for a charcoal BBQ compared to the Uuni though?

    from the various Dominoes fly-on-wall doc's I forget if they have frozen dough; but, for home frozen trials I've made with left overs,
    it subsequently doesn't rise well during cooking and it's wet, defrosting in fridge of course
    - home freezers not up to it with power, or low temp - maybe.

    What's with the crusts being basically half the pizza lol ? So much space that could have had cheese on it wasted
