Pie Iron Pizza Recipe

We love this pie iron pizza recipe!  A few years ago friends introduced us to a handy little camping tool called a “camp cooker”.  Having grown up camping during summer vacations I couldn’t believe that we had never seen this “pie iron” tool before.  
We took to it right away and have been experimenting with new camping recipes and ways to use the camp cooker every time that we head out into the great outdoors.  Here is our super simple Pie Iron Pizza Recipe…

We pack only four ingredients for this recipe and often plan to have it for a quick dinner over the camp fire.  Of course the possibilities are endless and you can totally add all sorts of pizza toppings.  We keep it simple and as mess free as possible, making clean up a breeze {who wants to do chores while camping?  Not me *wink*}.

I purchased a new Coleman Camp Cooker (affiliate link) from Canadian Tire this year as our old one is not very photogenic {trust me} and having at least two of these on hand makes cooking up delicious, hot pizza twice as fast.

We use pizza dough but you can totally substitute sliced bread for an even easier version of this camping recipe!

This recipe is especially good on those cooler camping trips where the weather may not be cooperating with our plans.  Because it requires so few supplies and is served warm and toasty it tastes even better when it’s raining.  Don’t ask me why, it just does lol.
