Grilling pizza over an open fire (wood)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Going outside to start a fire in my pit right now.   I really love cooking on it!   I am going to try my hand at grilling small pizzas tonight.  I have a plan that I think will make them amazing.  I feel like if I can bake over an open fire, cook a whole beast over an open fire, etc., that I can cook damn near anything.  Not bragging, just saying that last night was the first time I made *perfect* open fire food (whole meal), completely w/wood for fuel.  I am so ready to tackle a good smoked pizza.  ;o)  Nice skill to have if the shtf, right?
 
So, does anyone have any tried and true pizza grilling advice to offer me before I attempt this the first time?  I baked some biscuits last night as an experiment.  I put a cast iron grill pan over the hot hot fire and then a little cooling rack on top of that.  Then I put the pan w/the biscuits on top and covered it all w/a big, deep roaster pan upside down.  Worked like a charm!  So I was thinking I'd bake the little pizzas in there a bit first and then put them directly on the grill thingy over the hot coals (no flame) to finish them.  I have pecan and maple to use for extra flavor.
