Did you know that a BBQ chicken pizza recipe is one of the best camping food ideas you could have?
Everybody loves pizza - but nobody expects to have it when you are camping unless there is a Pizza Hut nearby.
But you can make your own - and we'll show you how to do it!
You just need a Dutch oven or one of the pizza ovens that you can put on a Weber kettle grill.
First of all - the chicken
You could bring it from home all cooked and cut up.
You could bring along a rotisserie chicken from the deli - I do this a lot to have for supper the first night - use the leftovers for this awesome bbq chicken pizza recipe.
You can bring chicken to cook at the campsite - grilled chicken is the best if you bring along a camping grill - but you can also fry it in a cast iron skillet on your camp stove or simmer it in a Dutch oven on the campfire.
Lots of options - whatever works the best for you.
Next is what kind of pizza crust you want to use
You can use a tube of refrigerated pizza dough.
Make sure you have a way to keep this really cold until you use it or it will pop open.
One tube will make 2 crusts to fit in a 12 or 14 inch Dutch oven.
You can bring along a pre-made Boboli crust.
This is the easiest option and these crusts are good.
Be certain the crust will fit in your Dutch oven or on your pizza stone.
You can make your own pizza dough.
Here's an easy recipe if you want to make your own -
3 cups flour - 1 cup water - 1 package yeast - 1 teaspoon salt - 2 tablespoons sugar - 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder - 1 tablespoon oil
Mix and knead until smooth and elastic - put in an oiled bowl - turn over so some oil is on top - cover and let rise in a warm place out of any drafts until double in size.
Now for the sauce -
You can use a bottle of prepared barbeque sauce.
Any kind you like is okay - this is the easiest way.
You can make your own homemade BBQ sauce.
You can either make it at home or at your campsite.
Here's the recipe for the one I use -
2 cups brown sugar - 1 cup karo syrup or maple syrup - 1/2 cup water - 3/4 cup ketchup - 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar - 3 tablespoons worcestershire - 1 tablespoon garlic powder - 1 tablespoon onion powder - 2 teaspoons chili powder - 2 teaspoons ginger - 2 teaspoons paprika - 1 teaspoon salt - 1/2 teaspoon cumin - 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
Mix and simmer for 20 minutes.
Put it together -
Cut up chicken into bit-sized pieces - mix with a little bit of bbq sauce - just so it gets a small amount of sauce on the chicken - too much isn't good!
Roll out or press dough to fit the Dutch oven or pizza stone - bring dough up on the sides a little.
Spread with BBQ sauce - again, you don't want too much - just a thin coating.
Sprinkle with chicken pieces - not too many - just the right amount.
Slice a red onion and separate into rings - put some on top of the chicken.
Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese.
Bake in a Dutch oven with 24 coals on the top and 8 underneath for 15 minutes.
Follow the directions for the pizza oven insert for kettle grills.
You can get propane ovens for camping - the Camp Chef combination grill and stove gets hot enough to cook pizza.
