What's Cooking: Campfire Pizza

Like our last camping trip, I wanted to try food beyond your typical hot dogs and such. I was going to prepare the barbecue chicken and potatoes we did two years ago, but just didn't have time. What I did have was everything we would need to make campfire pizza!

This is a pretty simple recipe with simple ingredients.

Cooking spray
Frozen pizza dough*
Tomato sauce
Mozzarella cheese

*You can use store-bought dough, or you can freeze your own already made dough. All you need to do is follow your favorite pizza dough recipe. After you allow your dough to rise wrap it in plastic wrap and place it in a freezer bag. Simply take the dough out of the freezer the morning of the day you plan to use it and put it in the refrigerator. Our dough did really well in our cooler and was fine on our second day at camp.

Divide the dough into four balls. Prep four pieces of aluminum foil with cooking spray. You may also want to spray your hands a bit to keep the dough from sticking to them. Form four personal pizzas onto each piece of foil.

Top each pizza with sauce, cheese, and toppings.

Place pizzas over your campfire (the fire should be pretty strong).

Rotate pizzas every 3-5 minutes. Cook for 20-25 minutes. Remove from fire. Allow to cool a bit before eating.
