Equipment Needed to Cook Camping Pizza

Recipe: How To Cook Camping Pizza

1. For the dough, pile the flour and one level teaspoon of sea salt onto a clean surface, and make a well in the centre.

2. Add the yeast and sugar to 325mL lukewarm water, mix it together and leave for a few minutes, then pour into the well.

3. Using a fork and a circular movement, slowly bring in the flour from the inner edge of the well and mix into the water. Continue to mix, bringing in all of the flour – when the dough comes together and becomes too hard to mix with your fork, put flour on your hands and begin to pat it into a ball.

4. Prepare to get covered in flour and dough! Knead it by rolling it backwards and forwards, using your hands to stretch, pull, and push the dough. Keep kneading for 10 minutes, or until you have a smooth, springy, soft dough.

5. Place the dough in a lightly-greased bowl, cover with a towel and leave it in a warm place to prove for 45 minutes, or until it’s doubled in size. This is the perfect time to relax a little and read a book.

6. For the savoury toppings, chop all of the vegetables into similar sizes to ensure they cook evenly. For the sweet toppings, scrape the vanilla filling from the Oreos into a jug to mix with a splash of almond milk, then crush the Oreos.

7. To assemble the pizzas, divide the dough into four equal balls.

8. Dust a clean surface and the dough with a little flour and roll it out into a rough circle the size of the pizza stone, about ½cm thick. Have a go at throwing it up in the air a few times to make it extra fluffy!

9. When you’re ready to cook them, preheat the Dometic Cadac Safari Chef 30 to high – make sure you keep an eye on your pizza to ensure it doesn’t burn!

10. At this stage you can add your toppings:

Savoury Pizza
Spread the tomato sauce over the base, pushing it out to the edges. Spread the cherry bocconcini and pizza cheese mix and scatter with the remaining vegetables. Drizzle with a tiny bit of olive oil and add a pinch of salt and pepper.

Sweet Pizza
Spread the Oreo filling mix and then scatter with the crushed Oreos.

11. Cook them one-by-one directly on the Dometic Pizza Stone Pro 30 for approximately five minutes until the pizzas are golden and crispy.

12. Devour!

Want to get adventurous with your camping pizza?

Try some of these topping options:

  • Green and red grapes, rosemary, pine nuts, and ricotta
  • Potatoes, mozzarella, rosemary, thyme, and tomatoes
  • BBQ cauliflower and a homemade vegan ranch
  • Bacon and pickles

If you need an easy gluten-free option, simply pick up a base from the local grocery store and use tin foil on top of the pizza stone to cook it with any of the gluten free toppings.

I used the Dometic Cadac Safari Chef 30 for this recipe as it’s compact, lightweight, and gives me the control I need to cook a great pizza every time.
