If you are looking to achieve Neapolitan pizza results then the Serious Eats Special Edition kit is for you. Inspired by the team at Slice Serious Eats (www.slice.seriouseats.com) for hardcore KettlePizza users, this kit includes the KettlePizza unit plus the popular ProGrate/Tombstone Combo and the newly designed KettlePizza Baking Steel lid. This combination yields the highest dome temperatures and fastest cook times. Users can cook a Neapolitan style pizza in less than 4 minutes.

Products included with this kit are: - one 304 stainless steel pizza oven sleeve for 22.5 inch kettles - two wood handles with stainless steel standoffs - one hi-temp thermometer - one 14" pizza pan - stainless steel hardware - one 22.5" stainless steel ProGrate that allows refueling without removal of KettlePizza insert - one 5/8" Tombstone shaped pizza stone. Larger and thicker for better heat retention and easier pizza placement - one firebox which allows higher temperatures within cooking chamber - one wood pizza peel (for pizza forming and placement) - one aluminum pro pizza peel with hanging S clip and bottle opener (for pizza removal) - one Serious Eats inspired Baking Steel (high performance lid)

Some basic assembly is required (no tools needed). This complete kit is proudly Made in USA and has multiple patents pending. Buyers must first have a kettle grill such as a Weber One Touch 22.5 Inch Gold or Silver. NOTE: This product works only with 22.5" grills. Full instructions can be downloaded here.

Special Note: We are very proud to donate 10% of the proceeds from this product to he Greater Boston Food Bank and Warrior Thunder Foundation.

Wonderful Customer Service May 13, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Virginia  
Very good product and excellent customer service. When my KettlePizza arrived I was disappointed to find that the pizza stone was broken.  I emailed them right then and I got a reply about 2 hours later saying they would send me a new one. No questions asked and no jumping through hoops. 2 days later a new, and not broken, pizza stone arrived. I generally get cook times of about 4 minutes with a beautiful crust.

awesome incredible May 5, 2015
Reviewer: Lori Boone from MASON, OH United States  
Extremely fast delivery Goes together extremely easy just turn 6 wingnuts & u r ready to go  Fireup the grill & go to prep the pizza dough... hint if you fail to read the part where you are suppose to let the dough sit for 24 hours like I did...cheat...follow the instructions wrap your dough tight in plastic wrap & towel put in 170 degree oven for 30 min while you get the kettle temp up to 500-700 make sure  to use plenty of wood to get high temp.  When ready put a dash corn meal on metal peel pick up your pizza and it slides right on top of the stone that is heated and ready to cook.  Keep an eye because it doesn't take long before you have the most delicious pizza ready to cut and share with all the vultures that have come around to see what you are doing on your deck.  The 1st 1 gets cut into sm pieces so EVERYONE can share.  Then separate dough, roll it, pat it, top it  then put it in the grill for all to see.  Can't wait to repeat with the dough that has been sitting for 24 hrs.

KettlePizza Special Edition April 28, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Odem, TX United States  
Once the wood fire is blazing in the back and the flames are crawling across the Baking Steel ceiling, this is a serious pizza oven.  Temps rise above 700° and pies can be baked in 1-1/2 to 2 minutes.  VERY good stuff!  

My only knock would be temp control.  Once the fire dies down, the temps drop quickly.  The thin gauge walls don't help.  Keeping the wood-fired flame going is the trick.  Too little wood, VERY short cooking time.  Too much & it seems to be starved for oxygen.  Can't get a flame going.  Having fun figuring it out, though!  Guess I'll have to try again!! LOL!

The price is a bit steep, but any Kit short of this one can only lead to disappointment by comparison, IMO.  The Tombstone pizza stone/Baking Steel combo seem to be the trick to cooking the dough AND toppings simultaneously.

If not interested in making/buying a real pizza oven, this has proven to be a realistic solution to GREAT tasting wood-fired pizza.

The key to making great gluten-free pizza April 4, 2015
Reviewer: Chris Quinn from Cleveland, OH  
If you're a celiac, you have not had real pizza since you were diagnosed. With this kit, you can have it. Use the pizza crust recipe from the book "How Can This Be Gluten Free" by the people at America's Test Kitchen. (Don;t use plastic wrap to flatten the dough. Wet your hands with water and press it into place.) Once you have the crust parbaked, according to the recipe in the book, put whatever toppings you want on it. Then, use the cooking method from the serious eats.com website. Not the Baking Steel method in an oven (that works, but not like the Kettlepizza.) Use the method for the Kettlepizza with the Baking Steel. And you'll have real pizza, celiac-style.
