Summary: Out of range on your cell phone with no pizza delivery man in sight? Try Dutch Oven Pizza on your next camp trip! One of the fun parts about cooking while camping is the challenge of the “camp kitchen.” So, doing a homemade pizza out in the wilderness might seem like a challenge a bit too lofty but this one is a breeze!
