Campfire Pizza – The Perfect Pizza Parcel Treat

Campfire Pizza, pizza parcels, outdoor cooking, outdoor cooking parcel, bushcraft pizza pizza is a fail safe menu choice when taking my trio to eat in the great outdoors! They are very simple to make, quick to cook, and filling to eat.  My trio could very easily make these themselves, but unusually I was left to it today as they headed off to investigate what treasures the beach held 🙂




So, what do you need for a campfire pizza?

Some bread based substance…we used some round Swedish bread, but this will work on baguettes, pittas, or rolls.  Whatever takes your fancy!

Tomato puree

Grated cheese

Any other topping you like (we took some sandwich ham today to add)

The really useful thing about campfire pizza is that it can be pre-prepared at home, and carted off in its foil parcel wrap ready for cooking.  I chose (or rather ran out of time) to do mine where we were cooking.  Splodge and spread some tomato puree onto your chosen bread base.  Then add the grated cheese on top.  I shredded pieces of wafer sandwich ham on top.  Followed by the extra toppings of your choice.  Then place them on top of the fire, wrapped up in foil.  Ours were perfectly cooked in five minutes 🙂  Good for those children that need almost instant gratification!!  We served ours with a side order of corn on the cob (again wrapped in foil and heated on the fire).  I felt the need to try and balance out all the Easter chocolate we had been eating, and lack of vegetables in the last few days!!

Once they are cooked, unwrap and serve up.  Make sure you find a nice log with a lovely view to enjoy together with the yummy food 🙂  As you can see, my trio were more than happy with their campfire pizza, and were clamouring for more!  However, as simple as they were to make, they were handed a delicious apple to balance out yet more of the Easter chocolate 😉

  10. I literally cannot wait until we can go camping. We want to wait until littlest can walk and until we can afford to buy a big enough tent!!! Pinning this idea to take with us!!
