Starting Charcoal

The most efficient way to start charcoal without lighter fluid is to use a chimney. If you have not used one, check out our VIDEO to see how to use a charcoal chimney. These are awesome little tools that are safe and clean.

Whichever heat source you are using, get it heating up.

These things cook so fast that you don’t need a huge grill to serve your camping crowd but they are also portioned perfectly to make camping meals for two!

I like to use my mini charcoal grill if I don’t already have a campfire going at the time I am ready to make these little lovelies.

Char the tomatoes

Toss the tomatoes in a little olive oil then grill till charred.

Be careful to avoid over-doing the olive oil so you don’t have flare-ups from oil dripping in to the campfire or charcoal coals. Remove from heat and let cool.

Camp Cooking Tip: Skip the headache that comes with the dreaded runaway tomatoes rolling into the fire if your grill grate is too large…use a grill basket to char your veggies for this grilled flatbread recipe.


Grill the flatbread

Coat both sides of the flatbread with a little olive oil.

Grill on one side and when slightly toasted, flip to cook the second side.

As soon as you flip it, add the mozzarella, prosciutto and crush the tomatoes in your fingers over the flatbread so they burst and the juices top the bread.

Remove from heat as soon as the bread gets toasted which will be very quick.


Camp cooking tip: This grilled flatbread with prosciutto, charred tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and basil camp recipe can be made over the coals of a charcoal grill or campfire.

No grill or campfire? No problem!

Use a grill pan on your camp stove or RV kitchen stove.


Top the grilled flatbread with fresh basil and eat.

Camp cooking tip: Set up an “assembly line” if you are cooking for big crowds that way each camper can help with the cooking and pick the ingredients they love while avoiding the ingredients they don’t.
