This camping pizza is made with grilled pizza toppings and store-bought pizza crust. It's unique because you grill the pepperoni, mushrooms and green peppers on skewers before you put them on the pizza, giving it a delicious barbecue flavor! Perfect for camping, cookouts or backyard grilling!
Slice pepperoni, green peppers and wash mushrooms. Place on skewers (soak skewers first - see NOTES)
Preheat the grill to 350 degrees F/175 degrees C.
Grilled pizza toppings: For both the grilled pizza and cast iron pizza method, you'll need to grill the toppings. Cook the skewers on a grilling rack for 8 - 10 minutes, lid down on the BBQ, turning to brown on each side.
Step 1: Grill the store-bought pizza crust, checking regularly, until lightly browned. This will only take about 2 minutes if you have thin crusts, so watch it closely.
Step 2: Heat the sauce in a saucepan on burner (or if you don't have an additional burner, simply add the sauce to the pizza crusts, while they are grilling).
At this point, you’ll want to add any sliced olives or hot peppers ( anything that doesn’t require actual cooking ( just warming)
Step 3: Add grilled toppings, turn off grill, and place the lid down until cheese is melted.
Cast Iron Method:
Chop, skewer and grill the toppings, as described above.
Step 1: Add the sauce to the store-bought pizza sauce (you can do this in the pan or out of the pan and put it in the pan after)
Step 2: Add the grilled pizza toppings, then the cheese
Step 3: Seal the cast iron pan with foil and place it over heat for about 3 - 5 minutes, or until cheese has melted (keeping a close eye on it)
Serve warm with baby carrots, sliced cucumbers or salad! Enjoy
💭 Top tipIf you are using wooden skewers, soak your skewers in cold water for 10 minutes before using on the grill. This will prevent them from catching on fire while you are grilling!
Toppings: add other toppings to the skewers such as red pepper, cherry tomatoes, cubed ham, sausage or anything that can be cooked on a skewer
Pizza crust: use smaller, individual pizza shells and thick or thin crust * I prefer thin crust, but it can burn quickly, so I recommend a thicker crust, especially if you are cooking it over the fire and have less control of the heat
Pizza sauce: use your favorite pizza sauce (or simply use the sauce that comes with the ready made pizza crust starter kit)
Spice: spice it up with spicy jack cheese, jalapenos, or hot peppers
