Backcountry Pizza

(serves 1 hungry camper)

1 bag Betty Crocker pizza dough mix (Make it healthier: mix up your own dough using whole wheat flour.)

3-5 tbsp. pizza or pesto sauce

1 cup grated cheese (your favorite type)



Optional toppings


Pepperoni

proscuitto

Peppers

Onion

Broccoli

Mushrooms

Tomatoes

Whatever you like!

To make

Mix dough with water according to package directions. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Oil a straight-sided nonstick 8 or 10” skillet. Spread the dough thinly across the bottom of the skillet. (Note: Don’t use all the dough or the crust will be too thick. Save half of it for a second pizza.) Spread sauce evenly. Sprinkle cheese. Add the toppings and spices of your choice!

Set the pan over a very low flame. (Tip: For this recipe, you must use a stove that simmers or the crust will burn and the cheese won’t melt!), and cover tightly. Cook for about 7 minutes until the crust is golden brown and easily releases from the bottom of the pan and the cheese is melted.
