Easy Dutch Oven Pizza For Breakfast

I’ve got tons of one pot camping meals and this particular one was designed to please me and my husband.

There are so many people who like pizza for breakfast … I am NOT one of them. My husband can eat a few slices of cold leftover pizza right out of the refrigerator at 7 a.m. That just blows my mind!

If I am going to have pizza for breakfast, I need it to be a little more like an “egg-ish” dish. So, I created this recipe to please us both. 

Steps To Make Cast Iron Breakfast Pizza

Step 1: Start your campfire or charcoal briquettes and set up the Dutch oven for cooking.

You are going to bake your breakfast pizza at 400° for 30-40 minutes in a 12” Dutch oven … which means you will place your coals with 19 top/10 bottom = 29 coals total.

If you are using a different size of Dutch oven, check our Dutch Oven Temperature Chart post to see how many coals you need.

Camp Cooking Tip: If you decide to use a 10″ Dutch oven for this recipe, the crust will be extra thick so you may want to make a half-batch of the batter.

If you are using a 14″ Dutch oven, the pizza crust will be on the thinner side but still totally yummy!

Step 2: Prep Your Veggies. Now you’ll want to prep all of your veggies. I like using super lightweight camp kitchen gear that I can hang from hooks like my Flexible Cutting Mat Set! The set has 3 convenient sizes so I always have the right size mat for every task.

Step 3: Make The Crust Batter. Combine dry ingredients in large bowl. Now, add the wet ingredients and stir lightly.

Step 4: Grease The Dutch Oven. Grease pre-heated Dutch oven with a light layer of cooking spray.

Step 5: Add Pizza Crust Batter To Dutch Oven. Spread the batter in the bottom of a lightly sprayed, pre-heated Dutch oven. Make sure the batter is spread pretty evenly and be careful not to burn yourself because the Dutch oven should be warm.

Step 6: Combine Topping Mixture And Pour Over Pizza Crust. Now, it is time to add the “egg” part (that I personally need to eat pizza for breakfast LOL) Whisk together the topping and pour it over the pizza crust (batter) in the Dutch oven and then add the toppings that will be baked.

Step 7: Bake The Pizza. You’ll bake this breakfast pizza at 400° for approximately 30-40 minutes … it is done when the pizza is slightly browned and a toothpick should come out clean.

You’ll want to rotate the lid of the Dutch oven about a quarter of a turn, and the bottom of the oven a quarter of a turn in the opposite direction … every 10 minutes or so … that way you will have an evenly baked pizza for breakfast!

The morning we made this Breakfast Pizza we had a large group of hungry campers to feed so we also made our Camp Dutch Oven Coffee Cake and we stacked our Dutch ovens to cook them both at the same time and used a minimal amount of charcoal briquettes.

Step 8: Serving The Pizza. Just before serving, add the un-baked toppings.

Step 9: Slice & Serve. Let the pizza cool slightly before slicing and serving. Just as with any camping food you bake in your camp Dutch oven, the first piece comes out a little “rough” and then you can use a spatula to get the other servings out … they will look much prettier.
