Dutch Oven Breakfast Pizza Camping Recipe
Pizza and breakfast usually don’t go together but this easy Dutch Oven Breakfast Pizza Camping Recipe changes all of that! Whip up a fast cornmeal batter crust, top with a few more easy ingredients and bake in your campfire Dutch oven. BAM! You are the camp cook hero for the entire weekend! Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.
Pre-Heat 12-inch Camp Dutch Oven
Start your campfire or charcoal briquettes and set up the Dutch oven for cooking.
Bake your Dutch oven breakfast pizza at 400° for 30-40 minutes in a 12” Dutch oven.
- 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!
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. 😉

The morning we made this Dutch Oven Breakfast Pizza Camping Recipe 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.
Just before serving, top with the following
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
- 1/4 cup diced tomatoes
- Drizzle of sour cream or honey (depending on if you want to add a little sweetness or saltiness to finish it off)
Slice and serve
If you are cooking for a crowd, this Dutch Oven Breakfast Pizza goes well with our Camp Dutch Oven Coffee Cake.
