Dutch Oven Pizza Recipe!
You can’t go wrong with pizza! Whether you have it for dinner, lunch, or even leftover cold pizza in the morning, it’s always comforting and filling! Plus making a pizza can be a very social and fun experience to do with others. Everyone can make their own or you can combine the ingredients you love together! According to Fresh Off The Grid there are a list of things you may need to make this kind of pizza:
Equipment You May Need:
- Dutch Oven
- Chimney Starter
- Parchment Paper
- Metal Skewers
- Heat Resistant Gloves / Lid Lifter
- 8-10 oz pizza dough, (8 oz for 10″, 10 oz for 12″)
- 1 tablespoons each flour + cornmeal
- Toppings of choice
PREPARE YOUR COALS: Start by preparing your coals or charcoal briquettes. You’ll need about 30 for a 10” Dutch oven, or 33 for a 12” Dutch oven. Once the coals/briquettes are ready, preheat your Dutch oven to 450. For a 10” oven, place 10 coals under the oven and 20 on the lid. For a 12” oven, place 11 coals under the oven and 22 on the lid.
PREPARE THE DOUGH: In the meantime, roll out your dough. Dust a cutting board with flour and using a water bottle or bottle of wine (who brings a rolling pin camping?), roll the dough into a circle. Dust the cornmeal onto a piece of parchment and transfer the dough to the parchment paper. Dock the dough all over with a fork (this will prevent the dough from bubbling up while baking).
TOP: Add whatever toppings you wish.
BAKE THE PIZZA: Carefully remove the Dutch oven from the coals and remove the lid. Place the pizza, parchment paper and all, into the Dutch oven, lay the spacers across the top, cover, and return to the bed of coals. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the crust is golden.
SERVE & ENJOY!
