What is KettlePizza?
How Does It Work?

The original KettlePizza was developed to give people an affordable way to cook real wood fired pizza on a traditional charcoal kettle grill. The patent-pending stainless steel sleeve installs between the grill top and bottom. This creates a cooking chamber that remains consistently hot throughout the cooking cycle because the lid never needs to be removed. This solves the problem of overcooked bottoms and under cooked tops which is the common result when cooking pizza on an outdoor grill. Done correctly, the KettlePizza can perform equally as well as a traditional wood fired pizza oven that costs thousands of dollars.

Why It Works:

Cooking great pizza requires consistently high cooking temperatures, this is challenging on an outdoor grill because every time you open the lid you lose all the stored heat. People who grill are used to the phrase "Low and Slow", well, when cooking pizza we use the phrase "Hot and Fast"! Using our charcoal KettlePizza kit with a mix of charcoal and hardwood can yield temperatures well in excess of 750 degrees F. Since the lid does not need to be removed throughout the cooking cycle the temperature remains constant and a pizza can be cooked in as little as 3 minutes. Cooking at these temperatures is not possible in a home oven.

The charcoal KettlePizza installs between the top and bottom of your kettle grill. The product is adjustable and fits either 18.5 or 22.5 In. kettle grills such as Weber One Touch Siver or Gold Grills. It utilizes the grate of the grill as the floor of the cooking chamber. Users can utilize the pan which is included with all kits for cooking pan pizza. Stones and pizza peels are available separately as well as are included in our deluxe kits. Pizza cooked on a stone will result in a more crispy crust.

Since our original rollout of the charcoal KettlePizza we have come out with a kit for gas grills called the KettlePizza Gas Pro. Although the gas product doesn't get quite as hot as the charcoal/woodfired ovens it does cook great pizza and is very convenient. The units sits on the gas grill creating a high temperature chamber which is ideal for cooking pizza. We manufacture these products in the USA as well and use the highest grade American stainless steel yielding a product that will last for many many years.

Quality American Made Construction:
Our pizza oven kits are made using the highest quality materials available. We use American 304 stainless steel which is superior to the lesser grades of stainless used on many grills today. Our hardware is all 18-8 stainless which is made to last. We have spend endless hours designing our products so that they are easy to assemble quickly without any tools. Our pizza peels and pizza stones are made of the highest quality American materials and workmanship. Please be aware that there are knock-offs of the KettlePizza and, in our opinion, they are not made to the same quality standards.
