French Bread Pizza – Easy Campfire Food

With the weather getting a lot colder now in the Swedish winter, we need food that is easy and quick to prepare, and the less hassle to cook, the better.  French bread pizza is perfect for even the pickiest of little people to eat (and I have three, and they loved them!).

Ingredients For Pizza:

One baguette (serves three children)

Tomato puree

Grated cheese


Tin foil (for cooking on the fire)

These are very versatile, as you can add in anything you fancy really to your french bread pizza.  I have three young children so mine were kept simple to make sure there was less complaining out in the cold!


Chop the baguette into thirds, then slice each third open in half.

Spread the tomato puree on both sides.

Place your other ingredients on top. (I deviated from the normal pizza assembly of cheese on top of the puree as I was using mine to “glue” the ham in, and the 2 sides of the bread together!).

Place the two sides of the baguette back together and wrap in tin foil.

Place them on your fire for around 5 minutes in a good heat (you don’t want to char the bread so keep checking if unsure).  Then sit back and enjoy the view with your tasty food.

  6. Wow these sound amazing and so simple. I want to get a fire pit for our garden and now I have another reason to. My daughter loved french bread so I’m wondering why I’ve never thought of trying these before.
