Make the topping

Heat oil in bottom of Dutch oven (I prefer a 12″ oven for this recipe), add meat and brown thoroughly

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 pounds ground meat (we like hot Italian sausage)

Add the onion, garlic and green pepper. Cook until the onion is translucent

  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup chopped green pepper

Add the tomato paste, chili powder, oregano and pepper

  • 1 cup tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

Remove mixture from dutch oven to hold for use later

Camp Cooking Tip: In a Dutch oven, meat can be browned quickly over a hot campfire but for baking at precise temperatures, switch to charcoal briquettes as the heat source for this Dutch oven pizza recipe – Camping For Foodies .com

Make the batter/crust

Mix the dry ingredients together

  • 1 cup unbleached flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

Add the oil, egg whites and milk stirring lightly

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup skim milk

Spread the batter in the bottom of a lightly sprayed Dutch oven (oven will be pre-heated from browning the meat)

  • Cooking spray

Spoon the topping over the pizza crust (batter) and sprinkle with cheese and black olives

  • Spoon meat and sauce topping evenly over batter
  • 1/2  cup grated part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 small can sliced black olives (optional)

Bake it

Bake your Dutch oven pizza at 400° for 30-40 minutes
Note: Dutch oven sizes vary, bigger ovens require more briquettes, smaller require less, see our Dutch oven charcoal temperature chart for help!

For this Dutch oven pizza camp recipe, I like to use a 12 inch Dutch oven which seems to create the perfect sized pie for our camping group. If you adjust the size of the oven, you will also need to adjust your cooking time so just keep an eye on your pizza as it bakes and use our handy Dutch oven charcoal temperature chart for help in determining the quantity and placement of your charcoal briquettes.

Camp Cooking Tip: Measure your dry ingredients at home for this Dutch oven pizza recipe so you are only transporting what you need to the campsite. I like using food storage containers with locking tabs for an extra secure lid seal because I really get grumpy when I have to clean up spills that could have been avoided. After all, camping is for relaxing and unplugging … and extra cleaning does not fit the agenda, right?

After your Dutch oven is pre-heated, take extra precaution when handling the hot cooking utensils … the lid as well as the handle. A cast iron lid lifter can keep you safely away from the hot campfire and coals and will keep you enjoying your camp trip as well as your Dutch oven pizza camp dinner that will be almost ready to serve by now.

    I don’t think I would have ever been so brave as to try this at the campsite. But, those photos and easy instructions have taken away all my excuses! Can’t wait to give this one a try.
