Need "sleeve" when grilling

A couple times each week, I like to make little pizzas on the gas grill for my kids for lunch. The problem is, when I'm putting on the sauce, toppings and cheese, my forearm gets really overheated & nearly burned (I put the pizzas on the back of the grill for the best heating/melting) Anyone know of a really good "sleeve"-type item that goes up to nearly the elbow, that doesn't cover the hands? (I need to hold the sauce brush and sprinkle the toppings)

Thanks!

I used to have heat resistant gloves when I had a wood stove. The "cuff" came half way up my arm.

You could also get longer utensils.

Just lay a cookie sheet between you and the pizzas.

ummmm...I can't get longer fingers, and that's what I use Any idea what manufacturer made the heat resistant gloves?

Jeeks - hmmm - hadn't thought of that - but I move the pizzas back and forth 4 times through each one's cooking. Wonder if I could use foil?

No. The cookie sheet blocks the heat between you and the pizzas so your arm/sleeve doesnt get hot. When you're done adding the sauce just take the sheet off and set to the side.

Cooks have grill sleeves...it looks like a sweater sleeve. Fits from the wrist to above the elbow.

Jeeks - you're too fast! I wrote that, then figured out what you were saying and changed my reply - we must've been typing at the same time.

That one on ebay looks pretty cool! Thanks adillo!

I think it might work out better if you put the sauce and toppings on the pizza before hand. This way everything will be cooked at the same time.

Either way, I hope you find an optimal solution.

Go to a welding supply vendor.

Get a set of arm spats.

Also works for rough play with 20 pound cats.

I don't think that would work too well - the grill would be a mess
Here's my method (by way of Mario Batali) I put the dough on the grill on high for 1 minute, then slide it to the low-med/low side for 2 minutes, then flip it to the high side for 1 minute, then slide to the low-med-low side for 2 minutes. Then I put on the sauce, toppings and cheese and close the grill till the cheese melts.

I think jeekins had such a good idea about putting the sheet on the grill closest to me. I've tried that and it really went well!! Thanks jeeks!

Wart - love the cat comment.

Wow!

I thought you would have went for the sleeve. I was curious if it worked well. At least it's not a "pain" to make pizzas anymore.

Is the Batali recipe on FN website?

Are you using raw pizza dough? I'm assuming not. It would probably hang through the grids? I'd put a pizza tray under it or a cookie sheet.
