(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)
Whatever you like!
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.
