Campfire Pizza Bake

Two things that I strive to do while camping: make delicious food and make delicious food that is easy!  Anything that combines pizza and a tinfoil packet is a winner in my books.  Total bonus that the kids absolutely love this campfire pizza bake and request it all of the time!

Tips for camping meal preparation:

  • Prepare meals in advance at home whenever possible.  Leave most of the mess at home where running water is more accessible and clean up is easier.  Trust me on this one!
  • Create “one pot” family style meals for quick dinners that don’t require a lot of thought. 
  • Use tinfoil packets, foil pie pans or camp cookers (aff link). These tools help to make clean up a breeze!
  • Pack ingredients in 1 gallon size ziploc bags for flexible storage in small fridges and coolers.
  • Plan meals that use similar ingredients to help make packing and planning easy.  These Cheesy Campfire Dip, Loaded Campfire Potatoes and Campfire Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich recipes are some of my favorites.

Over the years I have experimented and tried out pretty much every camping tool known to woman.  I love to cook and make yummy food while we are camping.  Here are some of my favorite products to use while camping (affiliate links).

Camp cooking essentials:

  • Menu planning for camping is something that I always do to stay organized.  Grab this free Meal Planner Printable to get started on your next trip.
  • A Pie Iron Camp Cooker makes cooking over the open fire super easy.  Check out these 20+ Pie Iron Recipe Ideas for tons of camp cooker inspiration!
  • Foil Pie Plates make tinfoil packet meals even easier with the sturdy base that they provide. 
  • These Grilling Bags that I recently found are amazing!  Simply add all of your ingredients to the bag at home then throw it on the campfire or grill when camping in the great outdoors.  Avoid the grill bags with plastic windows, they melt (yikes!).
