Campfire Pizza

A hot meal around the campfire is such a treat after a day enjoying the outdoors, but it doesn’t have to be all about hotdogs. Get an assembly line going at the picnic table and these delicious, hearty and healthy pizzas can come together so quickly and it’s a great way to engage kids in the (camp) kitchen!

Serves 4

6-8 large wholegrain pitas

¼ cup olive oil

1 cup of your favourite tomato sauce and/or pesto

8 cups pizza veggies (e.g. sliced mushrooms, peppers, spinach, onion)

4 cups pizza cheese (e.g. mozzarella, provolone, parmesan, goat cheese)

6-8 sheets aluminum foil

Lay out the sheets of aluminum foil. Using a brush or clean fingers, cover both sides of the pita with olive oil then place on a sheet of foil. Top with 2 tablespoons of sauce, spreading it to the edges. Sprinkle half of the pita with your favourite veggies and top with cheese. Fold the other half over so all the filling is inside and wrap tightly in the foil. Cook over coals on the fire (or in a skillet on the stove) for approximately 15 minutes until the pita is crisped and the cheese is melted.
