In camp
Finely dice cheese. In a bowl, combine baking mix and 1/2 cup water; stir until dough forms. Pour oil into a 10-inch skillet. Roll dough thin on a plate with a Lexan water bottle and transfer to skillet (or spread it evenly across skillet with a spoon). Top with tomato sauce, cheese, and pepperoni. Cover the pizza with a pot lid and cook over medium heat for five minutes, or until cheese melts. Top with Italian seasoning.
