Stove Top Pizza

A couple of years ago, I went on a backpacking trip with the National Outdoor Leadership School. On this excursion, I learned a lot about leadership and technical outdoor skills, but most importantly, I learned how to cook some crazy amazing things with minimal equipment and ingredients. One of my favorite recipes from that trip was this amazing backcountry-friendly pizza. You can make this with just a pot and a pan.

Since that trip, I have fine-tuned this recipe in order to achieve the maximum flavor to simplicity ratio. Like all of my other recipes, this is very customizable, so it is a great food for a dinner party where everyone can build and cook their own personal pizzas.

The key to making this pizza truly stand-out-from-the-crowd-magnificent is in the seasoning. I encourage you to experiment with spices and herbs in the dough and sauce to find the perfect combination for you. Without further ado, enjoy!

For the Toppings:
Instructions
  1. Activate yeast by combining yeast, water, and sugar in a small bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes, or until mixture is foamy.
  2. Add mixture, olive oil, and seasonings to flour slowly, kneading as you go. Dough should be light and not too sticky. Cover dough and let rise for 1 hour, or until it is almost doubled in size.
  3. Chop mushroom and onions. Sauté for 5 minutes.
  4. Once dough has risen, divide it into two parts. Roll out into two pizzas (flat and round, you know the drill).
  5. Heat a large skillet with a little oil on low heat. Add one pizza dough and cover. Allow to cook for 3-5 minute - bottom should be golden brown and top should be looking more dry or cooked through.
  6. Flip pizza and add toppings. Add a spoonful of water and cover immediately. The steam helps cook the pizza evenly, and it melts cheese if you are using it. Allow to cook for 2-3 more minutes and serve immediately.
