His fans rushed to share their suggestions, with one writing: "Get a Weber BBQ, definitely the best." Another remarked: "Get one that uses coal! If you get gas you may as well use your cooker." A third post read: "Get a flatbed grill so quick and easy. Cook a better variety outdoors."

However, one offered an alternative solution, saying: "Maybe think outside the (pizza) box and get an Ooni pizza oven. And then indulge a classic lockdown cliché; sourdough pizza."
