Fresh hot pizza is one of the best comfort foods. However, it isn’t always accessible when you’re camping miles away from the nearest restaurant.
Never fear. You’re in luck. No matter how you like to camp, you can have your pizza and eat it too.
1. BioLite PizzaDome
Many minimalist campers know about BioLite. These efficient little stoves use wood to create energy, but require 50 percent less fuel than a conventional open fire.
They also cut down on CO2 emissions and are being used in developing countries. BioLite also produces two watts of electricity that can power mobile phones and LED lights.
The new BioLite PizzaDome efficiently cooks pizza with wood for fuel.
The BioLite BaseCamp (for larger format cooking and charging) now has an addition. The PizzaDome cooks up pizza and flatbreads in a three-piece system. It has an integrated thermometer and a food-safe ceramic stone keeps your pizza crisp and evenly cooked.
2. Dutch Oven Pizza
Don’t let those campfire coals go to waste. Even if you have never used a Dutch oven before, pizza is one of the easiest recipes that can be made in this handy tool.
Dutch ovens quickly cook fresh pizza using wood coals or briquets.
Dutch ovens are usually made of cast iron and have a tight fitting lid and three legs to keep it above the coals. They became indispensable for many colonists and westward bound settlers and are making a comeback with companies like Lodge and Williams-Sonoma selling them in their stores and online.
You can make any type of pizza in a Dutch oven, but the wider the oven, the bigger the pizza. The YouTube channel, Outdoor Cast Iron Cooking, has an excellent video on how to make a Dutch oven pizza using parchment paper to easily build and remove the finished pie.
3. Coleman Camping Ovens
If you already have a Coleman stove, you can easily add an oven to your camp kitchen for hot pizza, rolls, bread, or even cinnamon buns. The Coleman Camping Oven only weighs 7 lb. and folds down into a packable 12×12 inch size.
The Coleman Camping Oven folds down and can be used with a Coleman stove.
It’s made of textured aluminized steel and includes an adjustable steel bake rack and a thermometer. It can be used on two- or three-burner stoves and costs a little under $30.
