For those who have cooked a homemade pizza on a pizza stone in the grill, did you preheat the stone as you warmed up the Holland Grill? Also any suggestions on how long to cook it? Not wanting to open the grill too much.

I do not preheat my stone. As far as cook time I use the time suggested on the box & usually even put the pizza on frozen if it a thin Tostinos type. Thinner ones are usually done in the time the package says. Thicker ones may take a while longer but start with the time it says & then check it to see how its doing.
As far as homemade ones I have used Grands Biscuits for the crust. Use a small rolling pin & flour to flatten them out,spread a small amount of virgin olive oil, sprinkle with oregano & top with whatever you like. I shorten the cook time from the package by 2 min or so depending on how hot your grill gets.

You will get crisper crusts if you preheat the grill with the stone inside. Italian pizza places always slide the pizza into a hot oven, not a cold one.

Why use a pizza stone? I put a frozen pizza on my Holland, set a timer for 16 minutes, and at about 9 minutes, I rotate it 180 degrees. Cheese is melted perfectly, and the crust is nice and crispy all the way around.

The pre-made dough sold in tubes in the refrigerated section of the grocery store work great on the Holland. Roll out the dough and place directly on the grill for a few minutes.

After it firms up a bit, take it off the grill. Brush lightly with olive oil and add sauce (optional) and any toppings you'd like. PLace back on the grill and cook to your liking.

Sam's Club frozen pizza dough thawed and pressed out. Toppings, 10 minutes rotate, 10 minutes check, additional time if a lot of toppings and BAM! delicious pizza!

Try one with and without using the pizza stone. The crust will be completely different between the two, although both will be great. Just different. One more crispy and one a bit softer.

We love the crispier crust of pizza done directly on the grill, no stone.
