Expert Grill Pizza oven Back in Action

Its been about 5 months since I baked pizzas in the Expert Grill 15″ Pizza Oven. I was worried that I forgot how to use it =). It took me an hour to just setup a station for the pizza oven. I don’t have my usual setup at this house were are staying at now.

I got 2 Pizza Buddy dough balls from Walmart on our way home. I split one pizza dough ball into 2 smaller ones that fit perfect into the Expert Grill 15″ pizza oven.

The first pizza out the oven was the classic cheese pizza.

The second pizza was with Mushrooms & Peppers with mozzarella cheese with shredded parmesan cheese.

The third pizza to come out the Expert Grill 15″ Pizza oven was the white pie with Ricotta, Mozzarella and shredded parmesan cheese.

The final pizza to be baked in the Expert Grill 15″ Pizza was my girlfriends choice. A mix of everything left over with some tomatoes, mozzarella and shredded parmesan cheese.

This $97 Expert Grill 15″ pizza oven has been one of the best purchases I made and something that I have been using now for almost 2 years. Worth every penny.

Expert Grill 15″ Charcoal Pizza Making Videos

I try to record every pizza I bake in the Expert Grill 15″ Charcoal pizza oven so I can go back and see how my pizzas are progressing with the pizza oven. You will see in some of the videos below that the pizza will bake in 2 minutes and other times it can go past 5 minutes.

This all depends on how much wood I had in the fire basket. There are times when I forget to check the basket before going inside to prep the next pizza. When I get back outside the flame is out and it can take a few minutes for the fire to start up. The pizza still cooks all the way but just takes longer. Now I try to remember to add fresh wood logs into the fire basket before I go inside to make the next pizza. This will give the wood time to light up and have a nice flame going over the pizza as it bakes.

I started using charcoal, lump charcoal, combination of charcoal and fire logs but right now I use only hickory mini logs that I purchase from Walmart. I pre-heat the Expert Grill 15″ Pizza oven for at least 45 minutes to give the pizza stone time to heat up.

Pizzas Baked in the Expert Grill 15” Charcoal Pizza Oven

I have been using the Expert Grill 15” charcoal pizza oven from Walmart since August of 2022. I will try to keep this page updated with new pictures of pizzas I bake in this portable pizza oven. You will notice some come out almost looking perfect and the others could use some help.

Walmarts Affordable Outdoor Pizza Oven

It can be time consuming keeping the fire going in the oven and also try to making pizzas at the same time but that is also the fun part of it. I was thinking of getting a propane pizza oven but for now I think I will stick with the fire logs. I’m mostly using hickory logs from Walmart since they have a decent deal on it and it’s only 15 minutes away.

The pizza gallery below is some recent pizzas I baked in the Expert Grill 15″ Charcoal pizza oven.

The pizza gallery below shows some of the pizzas I was baking in the summer and winter in the portable outdoor pizza oven. They all come out different depending on the fuel source I was using, how long I pre-heated the pizza stone and how much flame I had in the oven before putting in the pizza. I normally bake 4 to 6 pizzas when using the oven. The first one usually comes out the best since the stone was the hottest. Then as I cook more pizzas with the lid open, the stone losses heat quickly. I usually try to wait 10-15 minutes before baking the next pizza to make sure the pizza stone has a chance to heat up.

Expert Grill 15″ Charcoal Pizza Oven Review

I purchased the Expert Grill 15″ Charcoal Pizza oven from Walmart back in August 2022 for $137. I walked back and forth in the Walmart maybe 10 times debating myself if I should grab it. They had another pizza/grill oven for $250 but I wasn’t ready to risk that kind of money on a pizza oven I wasn’t sure if I would use more than 2 times. The Expert Grill pizza oven priced at $137 I was willing to risk it for that price. This was my first outdoor portable pizza oven. The box says Charcoal but right now I’m just using Hickory wood logs that I also purchase at Walmart. I did try charcoal, lump charcoal but I think the wood chunks work the best in my opinion.

I’m not sure how long this pizza oven will last me but I have made probably close to 300 or more pizzas using the expert grill pizza oven. I like to warm up the oven for at least 45 minutes before baking the first pizza. Since I”m taking the time to pre-heat it. I don’t want to just bake 1 pizza so we usually bake 4 to 6 mini pizza pies and try to experiment with different pizza toppings.

Below is a YouTube video of pizzas I was making when I first got the Expert Grill 15″ pizza oven.

These days finding an affordable and good pizza pie is hard. What do you do when the consistency of the pie changes or your favorite pizza shop closes due to Covid-19?

Expert Grill Charcoal Pizza Oven

Expert Grill Pizza oven is lightweight, easy to assemble and use. The charcoal pan lays in the back, for easy charcoal pouring and cleaning. Once the charcoal is lit and the oven is heated above 700F, you can pop in your pizza pie and enjoy it in just a few short minutes. 

This charcoal pizza oven can be used for a lot more than just pizza. You can heat a cast iron skillet and sear steak and other meals. You can make pita pies, chicken, burgers and anything else you want to experiment with. Remember, pizza dough can be used for numerous things including breadsticks, cinnamon buns, buffalo chicken bites, and flatbread. 

The first night that we got the pizza oven we made a cheese pie, two sweet calzones, and meat pita called burek. We got too excited about the pie and did not wait for the oven to reach 700F. Instead, we placed it in the oven when it reached 500F. It took a little longer for the pizza to cook on this temperature but it was delicious! 

The next day we made two more pies, this time letting the pizza oven reach full temperature. The pizzas were done in two minutes or less and had the perfect burnt crust. So far we’ve made a few more pizza pies, and they all came perfectly done! No raw pizza dough or hard crust.
