Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 4 people


  • 1 can pizza dough or homemade dough
  • 1/2 jar pizza sauce
  • 1 pkg pepperonis or other toppings
  • 1-2 cups mozzarella or mixed shredded cheese
  • 4 tbsp butter optional
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder optional
  • 1 tsp oregano optional
  • 1 tsp basil optional


  1. Lay the pizza dough out on a piece of aluminum foil. The foil should be big enough to wrap the pizza bread in afterwards.

  2. Spread pizza sauce all over the dough. We don't like a lot of sauce but use a little extra on this recipe since you have a top and bottom crust on each bite.

  3. Sprinkle shredded cheese all over the sauce and top with your favorite toppings.

  4. Roll the sides under and seal the bottom like a loaf of bread. You can also fold over and make a pizza pocket OR cut into rectangles and make multiple pizza pockets. I pinch the edges of the dough together to create a seal.

  5. Coat the outside of the dough in butter and garlic powder. Sprinkle on the oregano and basil.

  6. Wrap up in the aluminum foil and make sure all of the sides and top are sealed. At this point, you can refrigerate or freeze the pizza. I choose to freeze so it keeps it's shape in our cooler.

  7. Cook over the campfire, turning every 5 minutes, until done. It usually takes about 20 minutes total.

Recipe Notes
