Campfire Pizza Log

It is camping season again, which means EPIC meal planning! This has quickly become our favorite camping meal, because honestly who doesn’t like pizza! The best thing about this meal is your prep it ahead of time, and freeze it. So it will help keep everything in your freezer cold. I hope you love it as much as we do!


Lets start with the dough! I made my own using this recipe… https://veronikaskitchen.com/homemade-pizza-dough/ . I find I do need to add more flour to that recipe. Up to 1/4 cup adding a little bit at a time until it is not to sticky. You could also buy a store bought dough, or even use the Rhodes frozen rolls. To start you roll out the dough to a large rectangle, about 1/4″-3/8″ thick.

Next step is to sauce and top your pizza! Spread the sauce leaving at least 1/2″ around the edges. Add your toppings being careful not to go to crazy. If it is to full you will have a hard time rolling it. I filled ours with pepperoni, Italian sausage, bell peppers, artichoke hearts, and cheese.

Next you roll up your pizza like a cinnamon roll. Starting at one side and carefully rolling it up. Coat the whole thing in some butter or olive oil and sprinkle some parsley on top. Wrap the whole thing in tinfoil and toss it in the freezer until you are ready to go. Pull it out of your cooler a few hours ahead of dinner to let it thaw. When you are ready to cook get some nice coals going in your fire. The fire is an unpredictable cooking method so you’ll see mine got a little crispy. You’ll want to cook it 10-15 minutes on each side. Unwrap, slice, and enjoy!
