Dutch Oven Deep Dish Breakfast Pizza

Two things that I like the most in life, breakfast and pizza. Combine them and you have a winning combination. I make a lot of homemade pizzas and breakfast pizzas when I am at home, but wanted to find a great pizza recipe that I could make camping. I had used a dutch oven a few times and was still learning the ropes when I tried this deep dish breakfast pizza. Needless to say it was a huge hit and I have now been using my dutch oven on all kinds of dishes.

Dutch Oven Deep Dish Breakfast Pizza

There is definitely a learning curve to using a dutch oven and for this recipe I found that about 8 coals on the bottom of the dutch oven and 15 on top gave me just about the right heat. I did get a good fire going before hand and let it burn down to coals. Once you get the hang of it, cooking with a dutch oven is fun!

When I first looked at this deep dish breakfast pizza from Mark My Territory, I wasn’t sure if it would be a very camping friendly choice. But I made some adaptions and got a lot of it prepared before we even left the house, making it a snap at the campsite. I cooked the bacon, sausage, garlic, peppers, onions, and mushrooms. Once done I put those in a container that easily fit in the cooler. I don’t like bringing a cartoon of eggs with so I went ahead and beat the eggs and spices and put them in a ziploc bag for easy storage. Doing these little things before heading out made for a much more relaxing trip and a lot easier to prepare when we got up in the morning.
