The smell of campfire is just finally coming out of my hair. It’s almost been a week since I’ve been in Vermont, but there’s something about campfires that you just can’t shake. Makes me think about the campfire pizzas that we made while I was visiting my family.
My mom and I used to make them every time we would go camping. We used to go to the Cape in the summers and we always made a stop at the supermarket to pick up food for the week. The staples included food for campfire pizzas. It’s one of the easiest – and most likely, one of the best – foods you can make while huddled around a campfire. All you need is a campfire pie maker. If you camp and you don’t have one, it’s an investment you must make.
1 jar of pizza sauce
1 small sweet onion, diced
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Warm a cast iron pie maker in the fire.
Split an English muffin open and butter the flat side. Place, butter side down, in the heated pie maker. Top with two spoonfuls of pizza sauce. Add a sprinkling of onions, and top with cheese. Close pie maker and heat over flame, but do not place into the ashes.
Heat for 2-3 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bottom of English Muffin is toasted and crunchy. Remove from pan and let cool before eating.
