In case you haven’t noticed it creeping up on us, Labor Day weekend is THIS weekend.
Which, if your job is being a stay-at-home-mom, then that means absolutely nothing to you. (Remember, we only get Mother’s Day for a “holiday” from being a mom. *snorts and rolls eyes*)
Anyway, seeing that it’s Labor Day weekend, we’ve made plans to go camping. And while we are packing up and getting ready to load the camper this week, I thought it would be very fitting to share a Lazy Mom Camping Recipe with you! This one is even fun for the kids to help with!
Campfire Pizzas are fun because you cook them over coals in a cast iron dutch oven like this one.
Do you have one of these camping dutch ovens? They are pretty great because not only can you cook over a bed of coals, but you can also put some coals up top on the lid. Here’s where you can find these specific dutch ovens on Amazon.
So to make these fun campfire pizzas, you need a cute, willing husband to do it for you!
But if you’re fresh out of cute, willing husbands, here’s how you can do it anyway! *wink*
(makes 6 personal sized pizzas)
3- 13.8oz tubes of refrigerated pizza dough (by the pop can biscuits)
1-2 jars of pizza sauce
pepperoni (or your preferred topping)
Other items you will need:
foil pie tin
coals from a fire
Make six foil balls about 1 inch in size. Just roll sheets of foil into balls, making them as even as possible. Place the foil balls into the bottom of the dutch oven spreading them out evenly. Then make a bed of coals that are nice and hot from the campfire.
To Cook Dough:
Open one can of pizza dough and cut the dough in half. Spread one half of the dough out in the foil pie tin until it’s about the size of the pie tin bottom. Then place the pie tin on top of the foil balls in the dutch oven. Place lid on dutch oven and place over bed of coals. Then add fresh coals from the fire on top of the dutch oven. Let this cook 10-15 minutes (or longer if you like a crisper crust).
To Finish Cooking:
Pull the dutch oven off the fire and take lid off. Check the pizza dough to make sure the crust is to your liking. If it is, then it’s time for toppings! Spread the pizza sauce over the pizza crust, top with cheese and pepperoni. Place the oven lid (with hot coals) back on, and place back on bed of coals. Cook 5-10 minutes more or until pizza toppings are melted and hot to you liking!
