Pizza on the Grill

Campfire Pizza


  • 1 small pizza dough (about 8 oz or half a pound)
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 to 1.5 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Your favorite pizza toppings, as needed (sliced pepperoni, bell peppers, onions, olives, mushrooms, etc.)


  1. On a clean and lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough into a round shape, about 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Lay the rolled out dough onto a campfire-safe pan or a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil.
  3. Spread the pizza sauce evenly onto the dough, leaving a small edge for the crust.
  4. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce.
  5. Add your chosen toppings. Be careful not to overload the pizza, as it may take longer to cook.
  6. Place the pan or foil on a grill rack over the campfire, but not directly on the flames. Cover with another pan or foil to create a makeshift oven.
  7. Cook for about 15-20 minutes, checking frequently, until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted and slightly bubbly.
  8. Remove the pizza carefully from the fire, let it cool for a few minutes, then slice and serve.

Remember, campfire cooking times can vary depending on the heat of your fire and the distance of the food from the flames, so always keep a close eye on your pizza to avoid burning.
