Some days, like everyone else, I just don't feel up to cooking a meal with all the sides. I was at Costco yesterday morning buying some fruit when I came upon their Take-and-Bake pizzas. BINGO! Monday Night Football - it was a no-brainer. Their large all meat pizza is only $9 which is perfect for the two of us. Dinner and leftovers - the breakfast of champions ...

Preheated my MAK 2 Star wood pellet smoker-grill to 400ºF (20-30 minutes). With most wood pellet smoker-grills there is virtually no smoke produced above temperatures of 300ºF. Therefore it doesn't matter what type of barbecue flavored wood pellets you use. I normally just use what pellets I have in the hopper.

Costco pizzas are cooked at 400ºF for 10 to 15 minutes.To ensure proper even cooking of the pie and crust I like to rotate the pizza 33 degrees every 4 minutes. This puts me in the middle range of the required cooking time. There's nothing I dislike more that limp soggy crust. The pellet grill solves that by producing a nice brown crispy/crunchy crust. A pizza paddle is a must have accessory and a pizza cutter really comes in handy.
