There’s nothing quite like a good pizza. Everyone has their favorite combination of sauce and toppings, which is one of the things that makes pizza great. What I love (pepperoni and banana peppers)
Andy you might not. And that’s OK.
So how -do you make sure that you have four happy campers when it comes to pizza in the campfire? Personalized pie-iron pizzas! We spent the weekend camping with some friends, and decided that we would have pizza for dinner every evening. (And this is one of the perks of being a grown-up. You can eat pizza for dinner every night. And then more pizza for breakfast. Or perhaps a pie.) And everyone was happy. (Mostly, anyway. Sorry about forgetting mushrooms, Mark!)
So here are my tips for pie-iron pizzas:
First, use cast-iron pie irons. I’ve decided that ours have been seasoning for the last few years, and I think the pizzas taste better every time we use them. Second, use salted butter for your pies. I’m a big fan of unsalted for baking, but save it for your buttercream. This is also the time to relive your childhood and break out the WonderBread. As much as I enjoy a slice of honey wheat on a sandwich (or with homemade jam), it just doesn’t work as well in a pie iron.
Finally, bring all of your favorite toppings (and make a list so none get forgotten)! This year, we brought these goodies:
Pickled banana peppers
Chopped green peppers
Chopped Swiss chard
Chopped cherry tomatoes
(I realize this isn’t technically a recipe, and that there’s no picture to go with it, but it is what we’ve been eating lately!)
