Cook a delicious pizza at Base Camp using a dutch oven or fry bake. In this demo, we used a fry bake.

To do make this pizza, you will need:

  • dough (You may use homemade or store-bought dough. We got ours from the Bakery section at Publix.)
  • sauce (Again, we used a store-bought jar. We like ours with Basil.)
  • toppings, like pepperoni, mushrooms, olives, and onions. (Go wild, but no pineapple. One shall never put pineapple on thou pizza.)
  • flour
  • olive oil
  • cutting board


  1. Flour the cutting board.
  2. Roll out the dough.
  3. Lightly oil the pan.
  4. Push dough into pan.
  5. Coat dough with sauce.
  6. Cover with toppings.
  7. Bake to golden, yummy goodness.
Cooking directly on the coals, we burned the first pizza. The best way to bake the pizza is to scrape away the coals from the bed of the fire. Set the pan about 4” above the ground to bake the perfect pizza.
