Hi-
I have a large cast iron pan without the lid. I was wondering if I can make pizza over the campfire with it. I would imagine I would need to put something on top so the cheese melts. Tin foil??? It is too large to fit any lid other than foil.

Anyone ever made pizza on a campfire? Success? or fail?

I have made it on a grill, so I'm positive it will work great over the fire. Any lid will work, tin foil too. Good luck, take pics and share the results with us? Have fun!

Have a camping buddy addicted to Dutch Oven pizza.

The skillet is a great idea as it get the heat up close and personal.

Look around for a stainless steel stock pot. These things can be hugh and the stainless will hold up to the heat. Just measure the skillet and get the next size up stock pot. Heck the pot would make a great dish washing vessel.

What Bob Henry said. Goodwill is a great place to look, if you want to save money!

What if someone flipped a DO upside down and used the lid as a pizza pan and put coals on the bottom( which is now the top) and created an oven?

I do that all the time. I set-up a lage trivet, ring my coals around the trivet and place the lid on the trivet. Lay the pizza dough on the lid. Add a layer of provalone cheese, meat of your choice, pizza sauce, mushrooms, black olives, etc, schredded mozzerela, seasonings.
Then place the kettle bottom upside down on the lid. Place a ring or two of coals oround the kettle feet and give it 45 minutes to bake. Turning occasionally. The layer of provalone next to the dough is a family favorite. Sometimes we have to replace the coals underneath, to get the pizza crust brown. Of course, if you or the kids can't wait 45 minutes, you can heat a frozen pizza the same way. This method of cooking make a great demo, also.

Pizza Oven??

There are a lot of options for baking pizza...

Upside ovens using the lid as the baking surface
Right side up ovens larger than the pizza to make it easier to pull them out
Specialty ovens from various manufacturers

OR the redneck pizza oven....

Yes, this is a "Hold my beer and watch this" project. It can be very dangerous if you don't follow proper procedures.

So lets just suppose that a standard propane tank is the exact same diameter as a Lodge 12" Dutch Oven lid. Let's suppose that there is a non-used propane tank that can have the valve pulled out of and filled with water. Then suppose you cut a 3" ring out of the tank?

Maybe a 12" lid is set face up on a lid holder, followed by the pizza ring, followed by another 12" lid face down?



Would you end up with a pizza oven just like this?

I've given away a number of these rings to friends who wanted their own redneck pizza oven. I believe that these pizza rings are commercially available on the internet.

Don't even think about doing this if you don't know exactly what you are doing! That said, they make great little ovens.
