Cooking campfire pizza is easy, quick and gives the pizza that authentic wood-fired taste. Pizza is a really simple dish to make, and you can use whatever toppings you want.
This easy campfire pizza is perfect for a family or a group of campers to share. We use an English scone recipe for the base which is simple and requires few ingredients. Depending on the facilities where you’re camping, you may choose to make the dough at home first, and bring it with you in a cooler.
If you choose to make the dough when you’re camping, you need to bring all the correct utensils with you (see list below). It would also be useful if there is a table for rolling out the dough. Make sure you bring extra flour to dust your rolling pin and chopping board with.
You could also prepare your other ingredients at home. Wash and slice the vegetables and grate the cheese and put them into airtight containers. Measure out the flour, baking powder and salt and put them together in one airtight container. Measure out the margarine and put it in another airtight container. If you’re bringing tofu, wash it and cut it into cubes, before placing in its own container.
For the topping you’re welcome to choose anything you like. We like seasonal, organic vegetables and vegan cheese.
