    Kyle, if he doesn't want to mess with charcoal, wood, or clean-up then why get a pizza oven? Woodfired pizza is the reason why people get these ovens. Good luck!

    The BGE is better than a dedicated pizza open. The BGE gets hotter than gas, has more uses, costs less and tastes better.

    I modded my Weber Genesis gas grill by placing fire bricks around the sides and back of the grill. Then I placed an unglazed quarry tile over top (had it custom cut to size). Pizza cooks on a pizza screen directly over the fire. The tile cooks the top. Makes great pizza that I'll put up against a wood fired oven any day. Entire mod cost about $30.

    Sounds like a cool setup, I love cooking hacks (especially outdoor/grill related). I'd love to see pics of the setup! However, my boss won't go for this, it has to look good in addition to cooking good.

    Here are a few pics.
    1. When not in use I keep the bricks and tile against a wall.
    2. First line the grill with fire bricks. Had to cut the back bricks so that they would fit widthwise and so that the pizza would have enough room.
    3. Quarry tile goes on top.
    4. Pizza cooks on a screen over the fire.

    I typically set this up and then heat the grill on high for 20 minutes before use. Then turn it to low and cook it covered until done. Depending on the crust and toppings I'll adjust the fire.

    Also, it's easy to take on and off. The other night I made a couple appetizer pizzas, then took off the tile/bricks with oven mitts and grilled the main course.

    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.
